A Beginner's Guide To Dressing For Cold Weather

Fashion Week

Everyone still showed out on NYFW Day 2

It was rainy and disappointingly cold on day two of NYFW, but that doesn't mean anyone wore a boring old trench coat to match the disgusting day; quite the opposite, actually. Everyone brought their A game in terms of rainy day wear—and matched the rest of their outfit to their outerwear. Most people didn't abandon the bright colors from yesterday, either. As a wearer of the same fluffy black coat each winter, I have a thing or two to learn about dressing for the weather from the street style stars of day two.

Below, learn how to appropriately dress for the weather with me, and get some major jacket envy with our favorite street style looks from NYFW day two.

I'm not sure whether this is a scarf or a drape-y vest, but, regardless, I need it.

This marshmallow-y jacket draws all the attention to the wearer's face, which is where you should be looking, anyway. Those accessories!

Our fashion and beauty editor Jenna Igneri's coat and sunglasses are making Irina's pink earrings pop. I'd like to also thank Jenna's leather jacket for existing.

This jacket may make me officially stop associating fringe with Western wear. And the bag matching the headscarf? Amazing.

Make a monochromatic look stand out by combining different textures. Baby blue faux fur is a cozy dream.
