Let's take a moment to put aside the holiday styling preparations, and turn our attention to a more casual affair. We're thinking off-duty here. More specifically, we're thinking about the ways in which we can take our low-key Winter looks - layers, layers, and more layers - and transform them into chic, functional, nonbulky uniforms.

Let's start with three solid outfit ideas: a silky maxi dress-turtleneck combo for the feminine styler, a plaid-infused ensemble for the classicist, and a leather-fur-wool trifecta that won't let a textural enthusiast down. Click on for our latest (off-duty) edition of how not to look like the Michelin Man when heading out into subzero temps, and tell us how you'll be wearing your laid-back wares this weekend.
