Is your wardrobe ready for the cold season already? We don’t see any harm in making sure you’re all stocked up on outfit ideas.

The winter months can drag on and you would want to go out still looking your best while fending off the chill.

We looked up to these celebrities for some layering ideas and found some great coats to consider at Farfetch:

1. Mix a belted coat with skin-tight leather pants

As seen on Naomi Watts, a pair of leather pants can make a great alternative to jeans. A belted coat will help make the pants look less intimidating and more effortless.
