Anyone who's ever lived on the East coast knows that East coast winters show no mercy. I'm from Texas, and living in New York means I’ve had to get used to walking everywhere whether it's raining, windy, snowing, or all of the above, and stay warm somehow. Luckily, I figured out how to do that and not look like a marshmallow in a puffy coat. The secret? Layering! Above are five layered looks that helped me survive this frosty week (and season) sans looking like a fluff ball.
