It's time to finally do away with the myth that cold weather kills your style. On the contrary, falling temperatures offer a slew of cute winter outfit
opportunities — in the form of layering
and other styling hacks
. Ahead, we're offering street style evidence that winter outfits can keep you feeling warm
and looking hot. Scroll on and you'll see exactly what we mean.
Opt for Bright Outerwear: Stay snuggly and make a statement. Instead of a classic neutral, go for a shearling jacket or other fuzzy coats in a bold hue like pink. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Swap Your Leather Pants for a Vinyl Version: Black skinny pants go from basic to bangin' when you rock them in high-shine patent or vinyl. Afraid of looking like an extra from The Matrix? Wear them with classics like a crew neck sweater and houndstooth coat. (Photo via Jeremy Moeller/Getty Images)
Take Your Sweater Game to New Heights Love a cozy knit but not so crazy about how shapeless an oversized sweater makes you look? Try a cropped sweater and high-waisted leggings for a sexy athleisure-inspired winter outfit. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Double Up on Pattern:
Leopard print is pretty much everywhere this season, meaning you can find it in all types of hues, from natural to bright red. Instead of saving your spots to wear separately, go for a combo of leopard (coat) on leopard (dress) and, well, MEOW. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Do the Tonal Thing: An easy, impactful way to dress for the cold is to layer up in tonal hues (varying shades of pinks, browns, and beyond). Not only will you feel warm but your look will also feel thought out instead of thrown together. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Tuck in Your Sweater: You might be surprised to find how small winter styling hacks, like tucking in your sweater, can update your look. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Belt It: Cold-weather layers can get bulky. Cinching your blazer (or any jacket or coat) at the waist is a simple way to streamline a winter outfit like that. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Pop Your Winter Outfit with Bold Accessories: Maybe you're a traditionalist when it comes to coats — and that's totally OK. A colorful accent like a cobalt blue winter beanie can add a dose of personality to your neutral outfit in one step. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Pile On: Cold-weather outfits are all about dimension and texture. Pump up your all-black everything with a snuggly cream teddy coat. Oh, and get more milage out of open-toe evening shoes by layering socks underneath. Genius. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Don't Be Afraid of Light Colors: Pale pieces like baby blue pants and light grey accessories don't have to be packed away for the season. Mixing in textured items (in this case, a sherpa jacket, leather boots, and bag) and a healthy dose of black helps keep your outfit in season. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Wear White (Way) After Labor Day: There's a reason winter white is a thing. With the addition of a turtleneck, tweedy coat, and white boots, the classic warm-weather combo of blue button down and white jeans transforms into a winter outfit. Remember what we said about pale colors mixed with texture and black? (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
