I'll be the first to admit that pretty much any time from October through April, you'll find me bundled up in sweaters and extra layers. Over the years, I've gotten smarter about my winter wardrobe, though, and have added in several pieces that do more than just your average knit. 

From technical fabrics to new technology that keeps you warm without weighing you down, insulating clothing is the new wave of winter apparel to protect against extreme cold weather. Plus, it's an easy way to ditch the heavy layers without sacrificing warmth. 

If you're looking to heat up without all the extra bulk this season, ahead we've rounded up 12 winter-ready styles that are designed to keep you feeling toasty.
