    Chanel Iman

    We can all learn a lesson in layering, thanks to Iman’s savvy outfit she sported while at the Sundance Film Festival. She mixed prints with her flannel top and printed pants, but kept the rest of the look neutral with a black Oakley jacket and boots.

    Whether the snow is just hitting the ground, or like in Parker’s case, in thigh-high drifts, a sturdy pair of jeans can do just the trick. She wore her J Brand Aidan Destructed Boyfriend Jeans ($119) recently, pairing them with a puffer coat and sneakers. Bring it on, vortex.

    On a recent ski trip to Mammoth, Stefani geared up for the snow in Stella McCartney Oversized Square Sunglasses ($250), a cargo L.A.M.B. coat, and Sorel Caribou Boots ($150). She accessorized with a black beanie and simple black gloves to create a look suitable for the slopes. 

  • Elle Macpherson

    If we could look like this every time it snowed out, let’s just say we’d be way more excited about freezing temperatures. Macpherson was head-to-toe perfection during a recent trip to Aspen. Her furry trapper hat, combined with a seasonal sweater and Sorel Joan of Artic Snow Boots ($261), made us want to run off to the mountains and never return.

  • Jessica Alba

    Jessica Alba

    The stylish actress bundled up while out in New York City this week. Her furry trapper hat and Gerard Darel Ecru Duffle Coat ($704) were the perfect statement pieces paired with her blue jeans and zip-up boots. For an extra element of personality, try a chic cross-body bag, like Alba’s.

  • Rihanna

    Sporting a vintage Gianni Versace jacket and graphic DKNY Jeans Billboard Logo Tee ($40), the daring singer stylishly braved the cold in New York City last month. She polished off her look with black skinny jeans, lace-up boots, and a chunky-chain choker for an intriguing ensemble.

    Miranda Kerr

    The stylish mom stepped out in New York last month with her son Flynn in Oliver Peoples sunglasses, Rag & Bone’s Turner Leather-Trim Coat ($488), and knee-high Chanel boots. Take a beauty cue from Kerr and try a bold lip if the rest of your look is neutral.

  • Diane Kruger

    Diane Kruger

    If you’re headed to a serious day of snow sports, try an outfit inspired by Kruger. She opted for two jackets and a tucked-in scarf. The key to wearing these additional layers without looking sloppy is all in the color scheme. We love how Kruger’s mostly-neutral look allowed her red nails and red-striped jacket to pop.

    There’s nothing wrong with building an outfit around your tried-and-true cold-weather jacket. While out in New York City, Seyfried wore a black North Face jacket and let her bright beanie and textured gloves steal the spotlight.

  • Gisele Bundchen

    Gisele Bundchen

    We’re not surprised Bundchen’s subzero style is equally as chic as her beach-ready looks. While out in Boston, she paired a stunning double-breasted coat with black jeans, a Zadig & Voltaire Sac Sunny Delxue Bag ($545), and equestrian boots. If you require more layers, follow Bundchen’s lead and try a turtleneck under your coat.

  • The Elder Statesman

    English-Rib Bunny Echo Beanie ($315) 

  • Rag & Bone

    Jayda Mittens ($150)
