The two most dreaded words this time of year? Polar vortex. When it feels like negative 20 degrees outside, we just want to pile on as many layers as we can and top it all off with our warmest, puffiest coat. But, marshmallows are best left for cocoa—not style statements. Take some inspiration from celebs who are staying warm in freezing temps, while still managing to look cute.
Go Long With Your Coat. REALLY Long.
OK, forget for one moment about the fact that Gabrielle Union is wearing open-toed shoes in this Insta and focus on her tweedy floor-length coat. That’s head-to-toe, warm perfection right there. To get in on the dramatic trend, try this Maje coat.
Supersize Your Bomber Jacket
No need to retire the bomber jacket in freezing weather. Tory Burch takes the trend to new lengths with this statement-making, royal blue puffer coat. The quilted bomber looks pretty cozy and it even comes with a belt to define your waist. Consider a Tory Burch puffer, or you could go with Opening Ceremony’s long bomber varsity jacket. Or, try this Wayf elongated bomber jacket on for size.
Really Embrace the Turtleneck
We like how Gigi Hadid turned an oversize turtleneck into a face shield that protects against paparazzi and bitter winter winds. Gigi’s wearing a Victoria Beckham trench and a Tommy x Gigi rollneck sweater, according to style blog Hadid’s Closet. That cream sweater is sadly sold out, but there’s one size left in the sweater dress version.
Pile on the Faux Fur
Behold, the Parka Dress
Rita Ora is the one person who can make a bright orange sleeping-bag-like jacket look sleek. Here she paired her $1,150 Acne Studios down coat with a neutral black outfit. Try the same thing with an eye-catching puffer, but go for a more affordable coat and maybe leave the strappy sandals to Rita Ora and swap in sturdy boots.
