What Women Actually Wear When It's Freezing Outside

Here's a common winter scenario we know all too well: You wake up and start getting ready for a day at work, only to check your weather app to find a high of 20 degrees with windchill. Bored of your same winter coat-meets–sleeping bag ensemble, you start to search the internet for some fresh winter outfit inspo. A shoulder-bearing sweater? Great for the fall maybe but not now. A pair of sky-high heels? Not exactly the winter-ready look you were hoping for.

That's where we, or rather our readers, come in to help. Intended to brighten even the most dreary winter day, we've rounded up our favorite winter outfits that real women are actually wearing when it's freezing out. We promise.

Play with pattern to bring a winter wardrobe to life.
