level 1- springtime trench that provides little warmth, preferably waterproof.
level 2- early to late fall wooly mid-length coat.
level 3- oh my god it snowed 2 feet last night.
wanna hear something even more frivolous? i have three levels of accessories too. i know, i know. there's a linen spring scarf, which then moves into a cable knit fall scarf, and come december it's a neck gaiter. same for gloves.
it's a very precise method and i have it down to a science. you best believe i'm warm.
ps: i love these (level 1) fingerless gloves.
