Splurge or Save: Hot Looks For Cold Weather

Good Morning America

Temperatures have been all over the map this winter - up and down every week, even every day. So your look has to be ready to adapt to cold and warm weather, all while looking hot. 

Dressing in layers means more clothes, but it doesn't mean your budget has to go bust for you to stay warm.

You can pair inexpensive basics with one, big splurge piece, or make a swap for the splurge by choosing budget-friendly trades that are stylish at a fraction of the cost.

Lucky magazine style editor Lori Bergamotto appeared on "Good Morning America" today with three models, each showing a look that paired budget-friendly items with one, big splurge.

Each look also includes a bonus item, a wallet-conscious swap for the splurge item so you'll be able to keep shopping, and keep looking good, all winter long.
