Winter has finally here, and it can be challenging to keep both stylish and snug at the same time. The default reaction is to hunker down under blankets or don our least attractive parka with three layers of leggings. But despite the extreme cold, these well-known people manage to seem chic and desirable. These are the best of the bunch, and you should take a cue from them!
1. Jennifer Stefani
The brown and green colours of her top layers contrast beautifully with her sensual skin-tight black leather leggings, and her matching patent leather heeled boots scream lady in power. Her layering game is on spot, with several levels. Gwen, work that post-divorce look!
2. Kimberly Knightly
Keira Knightly embodies grunge in this dress, rocking it from head to toe with her naked but stunning face. Every woman can pull off this androgynous, tough appearance, but Kiera does a particularly good job at rocking the baggy look. Her cozily oversized sheepskin jacket, relaxed boyfriend jeans, ultra-comfy worker boots, and toasty beanie have us green with envy. Perfect fusion of slouchy fashion and comfort.
3. Gigi Hashad
Gigi Hadid transforms an item of outerwear into a statement piece by wearing this dark blue coat with a black fur lining so nicely. Her enormous fur collar’s dramatic silhouette makes us want to cuddle up, and it looks well with her short, sleek cut and slender suede boots. The ideal dinner date outfit for chilly evenings is seductive but modest.
4. Tyler, Liv
If you’re against fur, Liv’s fashionable appearance is ideal for you. This huge leopard print coat has unusual lapels and oversized buttons — with a peep of her elegant denim on denim attire below, Liv Tyler is suited for pretty much any event.
5. Florence Welch
Black lace is always a lovely winter staple, but Florence takes it to the next level with this sheer bell-bottomed jumpsuit. We might not have the bravery to do it, but Florence did, and the effect was magnificent.
6. Joan Smalls
Supermodel Joan Smalls is giving us a triple dose of feisty in her edgy and sporty all-black-everything get-up. We’re loving the juxtaposition of all the different fabrics, which gives the all-black aspect more depth. The cropped leather jacket with the mesh Adidas pullover and a workout bra underneath are both effortless and supremely stylish at once.
7. Alexa Chung
Alexa’s colour scheme here is casual but elegant, with a perfectly tied belt on her robe style jacket, and a precisely perfect ratio of boot height and pant ankle grazing length. Loving the metallic silhouette contrasted with the rest of the outfit.
8. Lady Gaga
Gaga is surprisingly demure in this classy winter outfit. We’re feeling a mix of Elizabeth Taylor and Cruella De Vil, and it’s fabulous. Her ultra-glam throwback to old Hollywood is an unexpected delight – but she’s still crazy for wearing those heels in the snow!
9. Karlie Kloss
Karlie Kloss is the queen of casual street style, but she still looks more put-together than when the rest of us are actually trying to dress up. Her snakeskin bag pairs perfectly with the dreamy shearling coat, which has such beautiful detail that she can simply rock a grey tee with black jeans underneath and still look fancy.
10. Christina Hendricks
Christina Hendricks is the master of rocking her curves, and all other voluptuous fashionistas should take note! She definitely looks inspired by her Mad Men days with this super classy and impeccably balanced outfit. From the plum, partially ruched dress that hits her in all the right places, to her black fuzzy purse and matching plum-printed skinny scarf, this might be the best ladies who lunch outfit ever.
11. Bella Hadid
Bella Hadid is a stunner in a very trendy bomber jacket and textured chevron striped black leggings which really showed off mile-long legs. Her Stuart Weitzman boots finish off the downtown look on a more polished note, pulling the black ensemble together even more.
In this long pink houndstooth coat and super baggy pinstripe pants with jumbo-sized black retro-inspired frames, Rihanna takes pattern-mixing to another level. Her take on menswear is signature Rihanna; eclectic and unexpected, but completely on point.
