How to layer your lightweight jackets

Lightwash denim looks a little more prim and proper than the distressed alternative, so play to the appeal with an oversize blazer — bonus points if you've got one in a quirky print.

Get the look:

A feminine, body-hugging jacket works as the foundation for your heavier duffel coat with a bit of hardware. Dress down the pairing with jeans and high-tops on the weekend, or veer on the conservative side with tights, a sleek skirt, and booties.

Get the look:

A parka jacket is a staple in any girl's closet. But throw an eye-catching fuzzy vest over it, and your look will feel completely unexpected. Plus, you'd be surprised how much warmth this pairing brings you.

Get the look:

Button up your jean jacket all the way and swing a varsity jacket over your shoulders for the ultimate off-duty look.

Get the look:

Start with luxe, buttersoft leather and add your printed poncho for top-notch bohemian edge.

Get the look:

A puffer coat is sporty as is, but if you really want to play up the athletic vibes, find a bomber with stripes that run around the neck or the waist and let them peek out from underneath.

Don't get me wrong, I know that eventually it'll be too windy to leave my down coat at home, but until then, I'm up for a little styling game. Keep reading to play - I promise you'll be surprised by how many of these cool-girl combinations are already hanging in your closet.
