Sometimes all it takes is a swap of the hat (January Jones), an interesting mix of textures (Jessica Biel), or a pretty pastel hue (Olivia Wilde) to make your cold weather wardrobe feel new again. And there’s more wear that came from just beyond this slide.

Tip: Mix rich textures for an all-black look that is anything but basic.
While promoting her latest film, The Truth About Emanuel, Biel proved all-black doesn't have to be boring by simply combing different fabrics and textures. The actress paired AllSaints’ Belmont Leather Jacket ($525) with an eyelet skirt from Giambattista Valli’s Resort 14 collection, Fendi’s Borderline Clutch ($860), and Bionda Castana’s Daphne Bis Pumps ($939).
Tip: Hit on two major fall trends with a turtleneck and plaid pants.
Spotted outside the No. 11 Downing Street Christmas party in London, singer-songwriter Vickers assured us wearing two trends—in this case, Topshop’s Plaid Crop Trousers ($80) and a black turtleneck—is always better than one.
Tip: Swap a slouchy beanie for a more polished beret.
Jones bundled up Parisian-style for a lunch trip to Pasadena earlier this month, teaming a black beret with Leon Max’s Doubleweave Wool Coat ($498), MiH’s Ellsworth Jeans ($209) in Sugarblue, Loewe's Cruz Bag ($2600), and Coye Nokes black suede booties.
Tip: Style a crisp button-down under a graphic sweater.
At the announcement of the BORNFREE Campaign in New York last month, J.Crew’s President and Creative Director was perfectly polished in a J.Crew sweater worn over an Ascot Chang white shirt and paired with J.Crew trousers and Manolo Blahnik Suede BB Heels ($595).
Tip: Balance a fancy midi skirt with a t-shirt and flats.
To celebrate the opening of PAMM (Perez Art Museum Miami) during Art Basel earlier this month, model Kylie Kuhn grounded her Preen floral midi skirt with low-key pieces, including a vintage t-shirt and loafers.
Tip: Make a denim dress winter-appropriate with opaque tights.
Cotton didn’t let London’s chilly temps prevent her from wearing her Topshop denim mini dress. The BBC 1 Radio host gave it a cold weather update by styling it over a Gap t-shirt and opaque tights and finishing with a Theory coat.
