Thanks to winter’s myriad of rainy days—not to mention sleet and snow—you’re probably an expert on cozy outerwear, but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t use some fresh style ideas. Luckily, we happen to have just that in today’s Style Spy story, courtesy of five stylish stars. So, if you want to know what your favorite celebs are wearing this winter and pick up some fashionable new ideas, read on!
Model/TV presenter Alexa Chung consistently walks the line between casual chic and stylishly smart. We just love the way she paired her chunky knit sweater with leather hot pants—it is the perfect mash-up of effortlessness and trying-just-hard-enough. You can make a similar style statement by coupling Ella Moss’s Nikita Cropped Sweater ($110.99) with Blank Denim’s Leather Shorts ($98) and Free People’s Valin Wedges ($178).
If there is one piece that you simply must buy for your closet this winter, it is a trench coat—they’re timeless, classic, and super sophisticated. Actress Emma Watson combined her bespoke Burberry trench with skinny jeans and patent leather flats, which instantly elevated her outfit from simple to stylish. If Emma’s ensemble catches your eye, try Veda’s Washington Trench Coat ($495) or Muu Baa’s Convertible Leather Trench Coat ($698).
Another timeless option you must try? A wool pea coat, as evidenced by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who recently wore a Burberry pea coat while out in New York City. Not only will you be oh-so cozy in the winter chill, you’ll have a perfectly polished piece for your closet—a great investment! To emulate Gwyneth’s smart style, try DKNY’s Kerianne Wool-Blend Pea Coat ($77.84) or Madewell’s Windward Pea Coat ($168).
As fashion fans, you know that shearling is one of this season’s biggest trends, not to mention a look that actress Kate Bosworth pulls off with ease. We love that she layered her shearling Burberry jacket over a feminine frock, resulting in an ensemble that’s perfect for day and night. Try this outfit for yourself by combining River Island’s Leather Aviator Jacket ($258.60) with Cooperative’s Chambray Crossback Dress ($59).
For those of you in more moderate climates, a fur gilet is just perfect, as demonstrated by model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Take note of Rosie’s styling—by pairing her gilet with a leather jacket, she has created layers that can easily be peeled on and off as the weather dictates! To imitate Rosie’s model off-duty style, grab Tinley Road’s Faux Fur Long Vest ($46.99) or Ecote’s Faux Fur Vest ($98).
