Splurge vs. Steal: Chic Ways to Bundle Up

I was hit with a harsh realization the other day. While spelunking into my tiny car through the passenger side in order to force my frozen driver side door open, I had to face the facts. My beloved fall is officially over. And now that we're smack dab in the middle of icy cold climates (at least here in Ohio), we have two choices: we can hibernate or we can bundle up and soldier on. While I am a generally a big fan of the former, most days we don't have a choice. But luckily this season has some of the most exciting cold weather options I've seen in a long time. My favorite of all is the muppet coat, deemed the "it girl" coat of the season. And the good news is you don't need an it girl budget to pick one up!

Here are some of my favorite cold weather trends this season- can you tell which pieces are designer and which ones are their thrifty counterparts?
