OK, so you've prepped your snow-boot game and you've considered a punchy new hat. But single pieces can take you only so far. There are 90+ days of chilly temps ahead of us, and you need a cheat sheet of playful combinations to put together this winter. Let's get styling.


Mix Patterns, Lots of Them

Pair Faux Fur with Soft Fabrics

That new teddy-bear vest you've been eyeing? Top it over loose silks and rayons (be that pants or a dress).

Endorse Fuzzy Accents

Li'l furry pom-poms are everywhere right now. When you're taking one out for a spin, let it be the focus of the outfit. Don't compete with too many other colors.

A single, solid statement is always a good idea.

Or Drape That Poncho Over a MiniSkirt

Keep Shapes and Lengths in Mind

Pair a tough-to-wear midi skirt with a shorter coat. Your ankles (and baller heels) are officially the star of the show.

The idea here is to vary your colors and textures to keep from looking bulky.

Style Your Boyfriend Jeans with Little Details

Kerchiefs? Mini cross-body bags? Stacked rings? This is where they belong--with your slouchy, distressed denim.

All this said, wear whatever the hell you want--even if it means slightly resembling a Muppet.
