When you're getting dressed for those really cold days, your first priority is most likely figuring out how you're going to conquer those frigid temperatures without legit turning into an icicle. For those of you who spend a solid chunk of your day commuting outside (hey, New Yorkers!), you understand the need for a functional winter uniform more than anyone. And while your warmth should always be a priority, it is actually possible to keep any winter ensemble stylish, as well—despite all the layers.
To showcase the best outfit ideas of the season, we turned to some of our favorite fashion bloggers who've pinpointed what we all should be wearing. Note that some of the ensembles will work best when it's cold (but not necessarily below zero) while others work better for more extreme temperatures. In other words, there's something for everybody based on the climate you live in.
Go on to find your new go-to winter uniform. Plus, shop each, too!
Fortunately, puffer jackets are so on trend right now (ideal for looking forward yet staying warm). Pair your favorite style with a printed sweater, jeans, and functional accessories like a hat and boots, and you're ready for the day.

This ensemble is perfect if you live somewhere like Los Angeles and need a look that's a bit warmer but not too much. Go for the athleisure look and pair leggings with boots, and add a hooded sweatshirt and cool moto jacket.
For an off-duty winter vibe, go for a puffer, sweatshirt, statement jeans, and sneakers. The cool thing about this look is that it can work if you're in a cold climate (with the jacket) and can work without the coat as well if you're somewhere slightly warmer.
