Not a sartorial breakthrough here at all but I've recently been drawn to the interesting silhouette of slips with oversized sweaters. Although some days - even in Los Angeles - it is too cold for bare legs and dresses, the addition of a bulky knit makes this combination a winner for days when the sun is out but the wind is biting. Pair with socks and slides or socks and sneakers or socks with anything really to protect your ankles from the wind but more importantly, to keep the slip from looking to formal or contrived.

Some more slip options here and here.
