As someone who grew up in the Northeast, I was under the impression that I would not be cold when I moved to Florida for college. I was so mistaken. It’s hard to pick out an outfit that is suitable for 40º mornings and 75º afternoons. 

Layering is key, so here are some cute and simple staples to keep you warm and dress up those sweats.


Everyone knows flannels are an autumn closet must-have, but that doesn’t mean they don’t work for winter too. In these winter months, I like to opt for a heavier flannel, something more along the lines of a shacket (a shirt-like jacket) like this one from Garage. On super chilly mornings, I even like to double up and toss a flannel over a hoodie or crewneck. This brings me to my next suggestion.


 Think Monica and Rachel from Friends.

With crewnecks, I tend to opt for the “oversized” look. Target and Walmart have a lot of great options for plain crewnecks that you can wear as-is or turn into a fun DIY project, like in this TikTok. Iron-on patches are also a super quick way to allow your personality to shine through in your style. 


Like this one from Forever 21 or this one from Urban Outfitters.

I saved the best for last. This faux sheep’s wool jacket is the warmest thing  you’ll ever own. Make this the statement piece of your outfit with a bold pattern or go for a neutral tone that can compliment any outfit underneath.
