4) Bright White
There is something incredibly beautiful about wearing white when it snows. While many are quick to resort to dark colors, wearing white just hits differently. This influencer shines bright in her crisp winter outfit thanks to the earmuffs down to the snow boots. What makes this outfit so effective is the variety of texture and differing shades that add dimension and interest to the tonal look. The best part is that it appears far more considered than it actually was.

On the contrary, if you are one to delve into the dark side, you’ll love this next look. Alena channels Matrix vibes with her dark faux fur coat and futuristic shades. If you are looking for an alternative to snow boots, lace up combat boots are sure to do the trick.

6) Pleats Please
If snow activities aren’t on the docket, you can always embrace winter head on with heavy duty accessories. Jihoon pairs a printed snow jacket with a pleated skirt – a bold move that is bound to leave a lasting impression. But fear not. If the thought of bare legs has you shivering, you can always add a pair of tights layered underneath thick socks for extra warmth.

7) Leg Warmers
One of the season’s hottest accessories is undoubtedly leg warmers and they happen to come in handy for the wintry weather. If you’re not sure you can pull it off, follow this influencer’s lead with a tonal outfit. Start with a chocolate puffer jacket and coordinating leggings. Then, add snow boots and leg warmers for an intentional layered look. Dark sunglasses and a scarf are optional but will help complete the cozy vibes.

8) Full Out Glam
When escaping to the mountains to get away from the city, there is always a reason to dress up come nightfall. A slinky dress might not be the most ideal because of the lower temperatures but Alexandra proves there are plenty of other cold weather options that’ll up the evening mood. For instance, a fur maxi coat complete with flashy, metallic pants and accessories. Now that’s a look that doesn’t make you miss your LBD at all.

9) Best of Both Worlds
If you can’t bear to leave your miniskirt behind, we have just the solution for you. Bundle up for the cold by styling a skirt on top of a pair of jeans. This unexpected combination forms a look that is uniquely androgynous and feminine at the same time. For additional style points, we love the idea of finishing the look with chunky platform boots and mittens.

10) Teddy Bear
Our last suggestion to fashionably approach a snowy day outfit comprises of the teddy bear coat. Not only is this outerwear option visibly cozy but it is just as warm as it appears – the ideal layering device for a long day outdoors. Consider piling on a thick scarf, mittens, and sherpa-lined boots for optimal insulation.
