Since it’s blistering snow outside and if you’re happening to attend the start of New York Fashion Week then its time to get some Winter Basics to get through the season in style.  Winter dressing does not necessarily mean compromising on style but dressing warmly is the best way to get through the season without ending up with frozen fingers and toes. With a little helpful reference from some of the most popular style icons trotting around during this harsh weather, here are some of the best tips to surviving the season!

1. The Jacket

Whether is fur / fleece / down the thicker and furrier the exterior the better. Fur does not also necessarily need to be worn as faux fur works just as good as any other synthetic fiber that can protect from cold harsh winds. Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast was found wearing this exact jacket.

2. Over the Knee Boots

On the other hand, to protect your legs and not wearing wearing too may thick pant layers, wearing the essential over the knee boot is a good alternative.  The legging underneath should be thick enough to be worn below a long jacket, but also not so thick that it doesn’t fit in the boot. Aimee Song of Song of Style wore over the knee with a leather pant. The classic Stuart Weitzman 50/50 is the perfect winter weather boot with grip.

3. Fur and Wool Accessories

Winter is all about layering so why not pile on the most colorful fur and wool accessories that happen to be in your closet.  There’s absoloutely nothing more depressing than black all winter long, so wear those red, blue, yellow and green knits. Chiara Ferragni of the Blonde Salad wears a large thick red plaid scarf to say goodbye to the winter blues.
