When winter rolls into town and the temperatures become frigid, running errands and completing day-to-day tasks go from only requiring a light, comfy jacket to needing what feels like a dozen layers in order to merely survive. When it’s freezing out, it can be challenging to crawl out from beneath the covers, let alone actually get dressed and go outside.

But hear me out: The key to surviving winter is having a few go-to outfits that you can treat as your wear-everywhere uniform.
