My daughter got a new coat for winter today only its kind of lightweight.  Had a choice of spending 90 bucks on a coat for her or 12 so not hard to figure out which won out.  Its a perfect coat otherwise: no velco, no tabs, no high pokey collar or useless hood.  So we are going to stuff one of her warm bunnyhugs under it (which just so happens to match in colour) and of course she will have her "tummy warmer" (aka fleece tube top worn under the clothes) on when it gets really cold out.
But I am still a bit concerned for colder days.  What else could you do to make a coat system warmer?

We used baby legs, both on our wrists and ankles.  My dd's pants would always ride up on her legs and they worked great for making sure her skin wasn't exposed.  Same deal with her coat and gloves, I just can't get the coat and gloves to stay together.  We still use them now and she is 5, so it's a worthwhile craft, cuz you'll get tons of use out of them. 

Here's a tute for making them http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=265854.0

I didn't finish mine as nicely, I ran the serger over the edges with a satin stitch I believe, it made it ruffle just a little.  We also made a set with a button hole for her thumb and that works great for under gloves.

Of course the best way to keep warm is to stay home and snuggle!!
