17 Winter Outfits That Might Actually Make You Like the Cold

As someone who grew up worrying that my hair would freeze if I went outside while it was wet, I can say with near certainty that people who say that they like the cold are lying. Or at least, that's what I always thought. But now that ski-inspired fashion—see: Miu Miu's, Givenchy's, and Chanel's F/W 21 collections—and excessive layering are *in* for winter, perhaps dressing for the cold won't be so bad. In fact, maybe it will actually be enjoyable. 

To test my theory, I went deep into an Instagram hole (as one does), scouring the feeds of the platform's most stylish dressers who live in climates that aren't sunny year-round. Think Stockholm, Paris, London, Copenhagen, and New York, among other locales. What I discovered was proof that, finally, trends are steering people in the way of dressing for the cold weather rather than fighting against it. Keep scrolling for 17 winter outfits that might actually make you like the cold.
