As the cold season settles in for the long haul, winter coats are in heavy rotation. Thankfully, there’s a little trick to keep the style looking fresh. We’re talking about one of our favorite outfit formulas: wearing a belt over your coat, for styling that feels polished despite how many layers are bundled underneath.

CÉLINE Cat-Eye Sunglasses / FRAME Cheetah-Print Faux-Fur Coat / MAISON BOINET Leather Belt / WOLFORD Cotton-Blend Turtleneck Bodysuit / JEAN ATELIER Ryan High-Rise Slim Jeans / DELVAUX Cool Box Leather Satchel / CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC Western Claire Spazzolato Leather Chelsea Boots

Get the look: Faux fur and wool can be bulky, so the belt is a low-effort way to switch up the silhouette by defining the waist. To pull off the street style go-to, simply choose a belt in a color and texture that complements your coat—this rich, tan leather pops against the earthy tones of the leopard print without overwhelming. Finish off the confident look with other standout accessories, like cat-eye sunnies, white boots, and a metallic handbag.
