Autumn is quickly turning into winter, which means that it's time to start dressing for colder weather! Depending on where you live, though, your idea of cold weather could mean a lot of different things. For example, someone from SoCal might think that 60 degree weather is "freezing", but a Midwesterner wouldn't even call that temperature chilly.

So, whether you experience mild winters or live someplace where -15 °F is the norm, we've got you covered. Scroll on down to check out four multi-layered, stylish and cold weather-ready outfits for winter:
