As a fashion editor (hey there), I spend a hefty chunk of my day researching trends, shopping steals, and outfit ideas to bring our dear readers a curation of the coolest things to know in fashion. When it comes to the latter, specifically, there are actually a few key winter outfits I’ve spotted recently on the Instagram feeds of some of the coolest style setters that are worth putting on your radar.
While the outfit combinations in question are clearly already fashion person–approved, I have a feeling they’ll catch on in a mainstream way given their simple yet forward nature. And since I know you like to be the first in your friend group to try the latest looks, I’d suggest giving these fits a whirl, like, starting tomorrow.
With that, keep scrolling to check out 11 cozy and chic winter outfit trends to try now. And while you may already have many of the pieces featured in each look, I shopped out the key outerwear item you’ll need for each (you know, just in case).
White Coat + Coordinating Dress + Statement Accessories
What’s sleeker than an ensemble made up of winter whites? I’ll wait. Well, while the look can be intimidating, it’s actually quite easy to pull off by simply pairing a white knit dress with a gorgeous statement coat in that same snowy-colored hue. Two pieces and you’re done.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match textures and prints for a directional look. The beauty of a shearling coat is that it will add just the right touch of sophistication to this more playful winter ensemble.
Sure, you may have steered clear of an all-beige or brown look in the past, but as this style setter proves, the look is about as forward as it gets. The key is to mix fabrics, opt for of-the-moment silhouettes, and try something new like stuffing your straight-leg trousers into your boots.
Try something different this season by wearing a slouchy wool blazer over a more fitted blazer underneath. The outfit is undoubtedly fashion-forward and is especially cool for the season with straight-leg jeans and patterned booties.
