Nothing’s worse than the dramatic temperature drop that happens around late November, forcing you to pull out your thickest and frumpiest coats. Just when I finally had my fall wardrobe figured out, winter sneaks in like a thief in the night, stealing any semblance of fashion sense I had.
OK, maybe I’m being a
little dramatic. But I do have personal vendetta against bulky winter coat and chunky snow boots — I’ve had one too many outfits ruined, thanks to these style-cramping staples. As much I love the idea of snowflakes and sipping cocoa, my ‘fit should still look good enough to post while I’m doing it (because content).
Thanks to a little thing called global warming, the months that make up winter can range anywhere from sunny and warm to freezing rain and mountains of snow — all within the same week. To accommodate the forecast, you have to have options.
If you, too, are in the midst of a
winter fashion slump, keep scrolling. I’ve pulled together the chicest winter outfits that’ll see you all the way through to April and beyond. Ahead, stylish cold weather ‘fits courtesy of the most stylish celebs on the internet. Enjoy! 1 All-Over Barbiecore Raymond Hall/GC Images/Getty Images
Barbiecore isn’t going anywhere, changing seasons be damned. So if you’re bound and determined to wear the hot-pink hue head-to-toe in freezing temps, let Alicia Keys be your guide, and rock your favorite jumpsuit and pumps with a warm and furry coat — no clashing necessary.

Make a bold print — like leopard — the focal point of your winter outfit when the rest of your ensemble is more neutral. Pair it with over-the-knee leather boots and a sweater dress, like Amal Clooney did here.

Who said winter is just for dark hues? You can still incorporate your favorite ones, like Florence Pugh did with burnt orange, into your ’fit from head-to-toe. Extra points if you try different shades of the same color.
6 Colorful, Fuzzy Coats & Distressed Denim Bellocqimages/Bauer-Griffin/GC Images/Getty Images
No need to retire the distressed denim that your grandparents still ask if you got half off (ya know, because the jeans already have holes). Take a page from Chrissy Teigen’s book and kick the casual ’fit up a notch with a bright faux-fur coat.

Drew Barrymore’s high-waisted denim, platforms, Victorian style button-up, and plaid vest make for a dreamy ’70s-inspired look that can easily transition to winter, courtesy of a neutral toned wrap coat.
