Dressing for predictable winter weather isn't too difficult. Throw on a warm wool sweater, add a parka and keep a scarf nearby for those breezy nights. Unfortunately, bundling up properly when temperatures go from chilly to freezing, can be a tougher task.

Style expert Melissa Garcia stopped by the 3rd hour of TODAY to help make the transition to winter wear much easier.

By dressing our hosts in cold-weather looks that are both practical and stylish, Garcia showed us that dressing for winter doesn't have to be a frustrating process.
