Welcome to #WhoWhatWearing, a series in which we highlight you, our stylish community of readers. Each of the following looks came straight from a photo you tagged us in on Instagram. Want to be featured next time? You guessed it: Use #WhoWhatWearing on the outfit posts you want us to see.

I can't believe it's already time to talk about winter trends, but alas, here we are. Though it seems like we were just talking about fall one second ago, the weather forecast has a different idea of the season, so it's high time we switched gears and highlighted all the emerging trends that will define winter 2018. We may not be fully emotionally ready for the cold winter months ahead, but our wardrobes are certainly prepared for the all the festive holiday-ready attire that comes with the territory.

But we don't have to tell you that, as clearly you—our stylish-beyond-belief readers—have already been wearing the coolest winter trends all over Instagram‚ and the season's barely even begun. We had a sense that each of the following five styles would blow up in no time, but it's thanks to all the outfit inspiration you've been tagging us in that these trends have been confirmed. From the crystal earrings all your holiday party outfits (and everyday outfits, really) need to the one coat style that's basically going viral, keep reading to see which five trends our readers (and we) are loving right now.
