Now that December has rolled around, your heart may be humming “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” but the rest of you is thinking, Shoot, it’s really freakin’ cold outside. We get it—dressing in chilly temps is tough. To help ease the pain, we’ve garnered inspiration from our favorite street-style stars and re-created seven winter outfits using pieces from INC International Concepts, available only at Macy’s.

plaid blanket scarf

Team a Blanket Scarf With Straight-Leg Jeans

PSA: If you don’t already own one of these scarves, now’s the time to buy one. (And here’s how to tie it.) To break up the bulk, wear yours with a pair of straight-leg jeans that are cropped at the ankle—showing a sliver of skin is super flattering. Don’t worry, heels are not a must. Instead, choose the comfort of slip-on sneakers.

floral slip dress

Slip a Turtleneck Under Your Dress

Don’t make the mistake of retiring all of your floral frocks come December. Here’s where thin turtlenecks come into play. Simply pair your go-to tank dress (or T-shirt dress) with a solid-color turtleneck (you’ll get the most play with black) and then toss on a pair of over-the-knee boots for extra warmth.

winter poncho

Punctuate a Poncho With Over-the-Knee Boots

Speaking of those over-the-knee boots, they also happen to work well with your favorite black skinny jeans. Play with proportion here and top your streamlined bottoms with an oversize top. The coziness of the poncho (almost) feels like you’re wearing pajamas.

block heel booties

Top Your Block-Heel Booties with a Roomy Sweater

The key to this outfit is a good color palette. First, choose a dark-wash denim. Then, pick lighter-hued boots. Tip: Be sure the jeans and booties both hit above the ankle. To add a little structure to your roomy sweater, give it a quick half-tuck.

flared jeans

Put Flared Jeans With a Fuzzy Jacket

It’s time to break out of that “always tuck jeans into boots” mentality, and a good pair of flares is all it takes. But before you throw on any old booties, make sure the hem of your jeans will skim the floor (if the heel is too high, the hem will appear too short and make you look stumpy). A cropped jacket shows off those legs and ties the whole look together.

velvet moto jacket

Wear a Velvet Moto Jacket With Stacked Heels

We love a good juxtaposition, and nothing is better than androgyny mixed with ultra femme. Transition your tee-and-jeans uniform into winter by topping it with a velvet moto jacket and a pair of chunky heels. Beanie hat and scarf optional.

silk scarf

Pair a Neutral Overcoat With a Long Silk Scarf

Covering yourself in layer upon layer might not be the best option if you’re constantly jumping from meeting to meeting. A contrasting silk scarf worn over a luxe coat is all you need to elevate your outerwear. Really want to impress? Team it all with cropped trousers and killer pointed heels.
