The snow is falling. The wind is whipping. The thermal underwear is chaffing. It's a tricky time of year to be stylish. You end up piling on any old sweater-and-jeans combo, leaving you feeling frumpy (and possibly looking fluffy). But we've got a few outfit ideas to show off your natural frame and keep you cozy.

Black Turtleneck + Black Jeans + Over-the-Knee Boots

Black on black is a no-brainer for trimming down, but this year's trendiest boots (the ones that hit above the top of your knee) also contribute to a sleek visual line. Play with lengths and pair the look with a long duster coat, so everything feels elongated.

Get the look: Splendid turtleneck ($58); Paige jeans ($179); Topshop coat ($420); Stuart Weitzman boots ($567)

Black Leather Jacket + Black Jeans + Ankle Snow Boots

Some days you can't avoid those workhorse snow boots. But that doesn't mean they have to weigh you down. An ankle crop is far more flattering than a chunky mid-calf boot. Then you can team it with pretty much any chic ensemble. (May we suggest more black on black?)

Get the look: The Arrivals jacket ($795); J Brand jeans ($198); Sorel boots ($130)

Cape + Belted Sweater + Leggings

So you've got your chunky turtleneck, but you're feeling like a marshmallow? Try belting it high at the waist and tossing a bold cape on top. You'll be warm and fashionable, but your figure will still be on display, especially if leather leggings are involved.

Get the look: Madewell cape ($80); Caslon turtleneck ($69); Spanx leggings ($98); Tod's booties ($1,155)

Long Cardigan + Distressed Jeans + Ankle Boots

OK, every day can't be leggings day. When you're hankering to bust out your boyfriend jeans, make sure that your top is long and flowing, like this duster cardigan. Anything thick and cropped will add width to your frame.

Get the look: Forever 21 cardigan ($25) and jeans ($30); Dolce Vita booties (from $20)

Bell-Sleeve Sweater + Skinny Jeans

And last but not least: the statement piece. You've already seen bell sleeves everywhere, and it's high time you incorporated them into your rotation. Not only are they a conversation starter on their own, but they're also an excellent way to distract from any post-lunch bloating you may be feeling.

Get the look: Club Monaco sweater ($229); Topshop jeans ($75)
