From Alexa to SJP, These Celebs Have Cracked the Winter Style Code

Winter can be a sartorial challenge, even for the most confident of dressers. The shift in temperatures proves to be the biggest hitch as, after months of giving little thought to whether your ensembles will be warm enough, this swiftly becomes your primary concern. And, let's face it, it can be difficult to feel chic when you're laden down in knitwear and wool. Difficult but certainly not impossible.

Some of our favourite celebrities have taken winter in stride of late, flaunting their brilliant cold-weather looks on Instagram for all to see. Sporting gorgeous coats, the sleekest of boots, natty knitwear, cosy co-ords and luxe bags, these A-listers prove that looking slick and being appropriately dressed for the elements can go hand in hand.

Amongst the most noteworthy attire is Emily’s sheepskin coat, SJP's logo-emblazoned socks, Rosie’s sharp blazer and Alexa’s embroidered cardigan, but there are plenty of other wares to go through. Keep scrolling to see the eight best celebrity winter outfit ideas that are too good not to imitate.

Sarah ensures her feet stay toasty in her cute Mary Janes with the assistance of a pair of chunky (Gucci) socks. We also appreciate the print clash created by her floral midi dress and checked coat.

Alexa knows that the cardigan is one of the hottest buys of 2019—particularly when paired with a roll-neck and ecru jeans. Now, we find ourselves swiftly coveting an embroidered iteration, which we'll pair with our summertime basket bag for a French-inspired spin.

Most commonly found in glam attire, Emily proves she looks just as cool in her off-duty wares. We love her combination of a refined jogger and hoodie, sheepskin coat, cashmere beanie and box-fresh kicks. 

ADWOA ABOAH

When your scarf, coat and boots look as good as Adwoa's, who cares what you have on underneath? Invest in statement outerwear and a designer shawl and you'll feel chic all-day, everyday.

Elsa insists that mini hemlines shouldn't be relegated to summer—and we quite agree after seeing her leather jacket, miniskirt, and combat boot. Just add opaques. 

TRACEE ELLIS ROSS

It's all too easy to default to dark clothing this time of year, but Tracee gives us all the inspiration we need to embrace bright hues year-round. We love how she helps to offset the vivid colours of her coat and trousers with tan boots and a grey knit. 

ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY

Rosie is the master of dressing down tailoring with casual pieces. Case in point: This pinstripe jacket–and-jean pairing, which she's given a wintry overhaul with the addition of a roll-neck and boots. 

JASMINE TOOKES

This season, we think the best knitwear comes with ties and scarf detailing—and it seems Jasmine is also sold on the trend. Pair a statement jumper with a leopard skirt and shades that'll tackle the low winter sun.
