Alexa Chung recently stepped out in New York City wearing a classic gray winter coat–and–cropped jeans combo. Chic? Sure, but the styling wasn’t anything outside of the expected for this time of year. What was special, though, was her of-the-moment accessorizing, which went a long way to elevate a traditional winter outfit. If you’re looking to add some flair to a tired closet, take a tip from Chung and add metallic ankle boots (we’re kind of obsessed with her silver pair) and switch your day-to-day scarf out for a stylish printed silk one, tied tight around your neck.
