There are tons of ways to achieve the perfect layered look in the fall and winter months. The key to all, though, is finding the ideal balance between being bundled—comfortable and warm—and chic. It’s not always easy to achieve all at once—unless you’re Jennifer Lawrence. It seems that whenever the movie star steps out in the city in a cold weather outfit, she looks effortlessly glamorous, striking the perfect balance between warmth and style.

The key to all of her layered looks? A good trench coat.

The 33-year-old stepped out in this outfit on a New York afternoon in the middle of June. So while the trench coat and layers might be primarily tailored toward cooler weather, you can certainly make them work during other seasons with Lawrence as your guide.

Though, as we said, there are many ways to make a warm, layered style look chic and put together, we are starting to think Lawrence might be onto something with her go-to long coat look. She has rocked several versions of the classic trench coat style in recent months, and each time they have elevated her bundled outfit to a whole new level.

Lawrence has mastered the art of layering, and we want to as well. With that in mind, we have been combing our favorite online shops to find our favorite long coats fit for a cool afternoon on the town during the fall and winter. Below are our favorite Lawrence-inspired picks.
