It may be getting chilly outside, but don't let nippy weather be an excuse look frumpy -- there are plenty of ways to stay bundled-up and stylish. For this cozy look, we started with Rag & Bone's gray shearling coat ($2800 at Net-a-Porter) and paired it with burgundy velvet leggings ($45 at Topshop) and a dove gray blouse by Les Prairies ($340 at La Garconne). To top it off, we added a floppy fedora and crystal studs from Forever 21 ($3.80 and $17.80), a pair of clunky black boots ($129 at Zara) and Imoni's fingerless gloves ($99 at Intermix).
Sleek and sophisticated, we paired a coral cardigan from Topshop ($62) with Zara's peplum-waist pencil skirt ($89.90) for a warm, work-appropriate look. A pair of classic nude brogues by Dieppa Restrepo ($225 at La Garconne) and polka-dotted black gloves ($55 at Topshop) rounded out the outfit and gave it some personality.
Bright red trousers from Topshop ($59) and an APC cardigan ($385) pair perfectly with Zara's tassled suede boots ($99). A two-tone overcoat by United Bamboo (on sale for $690 at Opening Ceremony) will keep you toasty warm, while a watercolor blue scarf ($55 at Topshop) adds a pop of colorful texture.
This ladylike winter look starts with Zara's effortlessly chic sweater dress ($29 at Zara), a bright orange scarf and dainty white gloves from Topshop ($20 at Topshop). A classic "winter white" cocoon coat from La Garconne's house collection ($1325) gives the look an elegant, '60s vibe.
A tough Rag & Bone parka with a detachable fur collar ($895 at La Garconne) adds a "ski chalet" appeal to Zara's fair isle sweater ($79). To give the look some kick, we added Rachel Comey's quilted booties ($472 at La Garconne) and Forever 21's warm Fairisle mittens ($6).
