We look to some of the most stylish celebrities to steal their secrets for looking great no matter how cold it is outside. Layer up, invest in a quality coat and rock some killer boots a la Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Rachel Bilson and Alexa Chung.
The U.K.’s It Girl is a fashion muse for thousands of wardrobes around the world. Combining quirky pieces with tomboy cool, Alexa manages to balance chic and cute effortlessly. Her shaggy bob and red lipstick often complete the look, regardless of the temperature.
To recreate Alexa’s key winter looks, invest in a comfortable camel trench coat. She throws this over dresses, shorts and skinny jeans for a casual-but-cosy finish. She’s also a fan of the short shorts with tights combo, often teamed with ankle boots and a cute silk blouse or striped jumper.
Alexa looks fantastic in knitwear and brings a feminine touch to woollen grandpa cardigans with a shimmery brooch or sweet Peter Pan shirt collar sticking out from underneath. She also loves a knitted jumper over a pretty skirt or dress, and pulls off girlie socks with brogues amazingly well. (Those killer pins might have something to do with it!) Blazers that skim a pair of denim cut-off shorts, flouncy-sleeved dresses and long-sleeved button-up shirts with low-hanging necklaces are all signature styles for Alexa. Top it all off with a casual canvas tote bag, a schoolboy satchel or a classic black clutch and you’ll look winter wonderful.
The Hart of Dixie star and former OC actress loves skinny jeans and a classic, quality coat. Her winter day wardrobe often features dark skinny jeans or faded boyfriend-style jeans, teamed with a button-up blouse and a cute pair of comfortable flats.
Her style is casual and effortless, yet even with a plain black tee she manages to look elegant and chic. She teams one-off vintage pieces with quality investment items and often finishes an outfit with tousled hair, a spot of blush and her signature Ray Bans.
She counts Audrey Hepburn as one of her fashion inspirations, and it shows in her simple and graceful style. The girl certainly knows how to rock a winter look, with cute beanies, pea coats and ankle boots featuring regularly in the celeb style pages of magazines and blogs.
These girls love layering and can master a stylish winter look with ease. Often snapped in oversized jumpers, black leather leggings and uber high ankle boots, these girls look as toasty as they do cool. The twins understand the importance of a quality coat, and have opted for a variety of styles from wool to fur (though we wish they would go for fake fur!). Teamed with leg-hugging tights or skinny jeans, they can throw on a beanie, a studded leather handbag and oversized sunnies and effuse nonchalant winter cool. They have layering downpat, often tucking silk scarves under their jacket collars and balancing style with winter practicality in teetering ankle or knee-length boots. Their tousled blonde waves are generally left loose to keep the neck warm and the face beautifully framed.
