Fashion shows aren’t always directly applicable to your everyday style, but that doesn’t mean you can’t glean some inspiration and make them your own. We’ve spotted ten winter trends you can try; ones that are surprisingly practical during the colder months. From extra long sleeves to the return of the faux fur stoles, here’s what we’re wearing to stay warm (but look cool) this winter.
The waxed ski jacket made its way from the slopes to the runway thanks to the purveyor of cool, Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia. Whip out your own North Face or Roxy coats and style them with slacks and heels for the office.
Who needs cold-weather accessories when your sleeves extend past your fingers? Rihanna-approved (seen here at her Fenty x Puma runway debut) extra-long sleeves are the perfect alternative to gloves. No more fumbling when you receive an incoming call—all you have to do is wiggle out your hand!
As an avid Patagonia fan, I am thrilled to announce that puffer jackets are finally cool. But more than just down feathers and high-tech insulation, this season’s styles vary from flashy (like this metallic number from Vivenne Westwood) to feathery. Top an LBD with a puffer jacket for a chic but cozy night out
Keep your feet high and dry with ’90s inspired platforms. These cheetah boots by Maison Margiela would make the Spice Girls proud, while patent leather versions can handle stomping through slushy streets.
FAUX FUR STOLES
Fur and faux fur stoles are making their way back in style thanks to designers like Monse. Drape them on the diagonal or attach it to your lapel as a cozy faux collar.
