Turtleneck + Button-down

Chilly morning, but the forecast says it’ll be 65 later? Slip a turtleneck under your favorite collared shirt—unbuttoned—for a creatively crisp look. You can always stash the extra layer in your purse later.

Get the look: Topshop shirt ($55); Majestic turtleneck ($79)

Hoodie + Skirt

You’ve probably heard: Sweatshirts are fashion now. So no one can accuse you of being lazy for throwing one on over a drapey skirt and ankle boots. (They’ll just be jealous they didn’t think of it first.) 

Get the look: Champion hoodie ($55); Kendall + Kylie skirt ($83)

Hoodie + Blazer + Jeans

Alternately, that trusty sweatshirt gives a plaid blazer some sporty flair (not to mention extra warmth). And if you wear a tank underneath, you can always lose a layer if you need to.

Get the look: H&M blazer ($20); Adidas hoodie ($70); Rag & Bone jeans ($250)

Ruffly Dress + Distressed Jeans

You’re dying to bust out the sundresses, but your pesky practical side (she ruins everything) says it’s too cold. No problem: Just add a pair of beat-up skinnies and a leather jacket.

Get the look: BB Dakota dress ($120); Levi’s jeans ($168)

Maxi Dress + Long Coat

Likewise, that Bohemian maxi can come out of hibernation early if you pair it with a duster and a sporty sweater-turned-scarf.

Get the look: Cleobella dress ($179); Superdry coat ($100); Banana Republic sweater ($43)

Denim Trench

Trench coats are a rainy-day staple in the city, but a fashion-forward denim version feels fresh and classic all at once. Bonus: Just like jeans, it goes with literally everything. 

Get the look: Madewell ($178)
