As an L.A. girl who moved to NYC about six years ago, I quickly realized that when it comes to winter fashion, there’s no way to get around dressing practically for the cold. You can think you look cute and don’t care about the elements until you step out of your apartment in February and one gust of wind has you running back home to fix whatever faux pas you thought you’d get away with. Trust me—I’ve learned my lesson the hard way more times than I’d like to admit.
On that note, whether you live on the East Coast or not, today’s roundup should still be useful or, at the very least, informative. Below, I’ve detailed six winter trends our favorite fashion girls are wearing that actually fit the bill for cold weather. In other words, no cutout sweaters, ripped jeans, or open-toe footwear are included. To see what made the cut and, of course, shop my picks for each look along the way, just keep scrolling.
