As a girl from Los Angeles who moved to New York about six years ago, I quickly realized that when it came to winter fashion, there was practically no way to dress for the cold. You may think you look cute and don’t care about the elements until you step out of your apartment in February and a gust of wind rushes you home to fix the misstep with which you thought you could get away with it. Believe me, I’ve learned my lesson the hard way more times than I care to admit.
On that note, whether you live on the East Coast or not, today’s roundup should still be helpful or, at the very least, informative. Below, I’ve detailed six winter trends our favorite fashion girls are wearing. Actually do the trick in cold weather. In other words, no cut-out sweaters, ripped jeans, or peep-toe shoes are included. To see what made the cut and, of course, shop my picks for each look along the way, keep scrolling.
