Whether out of convenience or inspired by street-style stars who’ve donned the look before, the double jacket is the ultimate way to combat the cold without completely muffling your style. But before you just toss one puffy coat over another (and restrict any and all arm movement), we’ve created a few foolproof combinations to lead you through the trend without getting lost in the layers.
A color-blocked jacket combination is an easy winter win-win.

Even if you stick to similar outerwear cuts, playing with different textures will make this trend super-special. (Over-the-shoulder draping, totally optional.)

Go for extra bold with a mix of clashing patterns. The blues and greens tie this combo together so that it’s more statement-making than eye-rolling.
We’re big fans of hiding a denim jacket as an additional layer. Keep it buttoned up if you’d like to disguise it as a heavy-weight chambray top.
The two jackets may be completely different shapes but come from the same color family. Plus, an oversized parka is always a great piece that can be layered over just about anything.
The clean contrast of two polar-opposite colors, as well as hem lengths, makes for an eye-catching (and warm!) couple of coats.
When paired with a sleek leather jacket underneath, this fluffy faux-fur coverall is given the perfect amount of edge.
