But as Rachel Zoe demonstrates in our winter lookbook, dressing the wintry part doesn’t have to mean hiding underneath a coat all season long. With just a smidgen of imagination and a dash of gusto, we can brave the weather in flirty minis, airy blouses, and even our favorite shorts. And that routine winter coat? It transforms into a show-stopping dress in Rachel’s expert hands.
As with all good things, fashion fully returns to the classics this season with sure-fit tailoring and feminine silhouettes. Black & white is the reigning palette with splashes of sunny color that keeps our hopes eternal for the first signs of spring.

Fur is such a luxury item that also looks great with jeans and boots or thrown over a dress. This crisp, classic winter outfit evokes early Hollywood glamour with its grand yet sophisticated silhouette. Whites and neutrals also never go out of style. Skinny jeans like these are here to stay and look great tucked into boots.
Dresses with pockets are so fun and flirty! I love the playfulness of this look and how easy it is to go from day to night with the change of a shoe. The cropped jacket is a great layering piece because it keeps you warm without overwhelming the outfit underneath. Try this over dresses or experiment with different lengths by throwing it on over a long top and trouser shape.
I love this romper because it offers such a casual way to be stylish and playful at the same time. Dress it up with a fun pair of wedges or keep it casual with flats. Don’t hesitate to throw it on over tights and wear it with boots when the weather gets colder. This piece is as versatile as it is fun!
This bubble dress is such a sweet and youthful silhouette. The empire waist and pockets add a subtle twist to the little black dress. Cropped jackets are perfect for layering, and the geometric print on this Mint piece is simply standout. I love finishing a look with metallic accents such as these gold gems from Ashley Dearborn.
I love big and bold accessories that stand out in a crowd. This locket is such a fun necklace to pair with everything from funky graphic tees to flirty dresses with pockets such as this one. Don’t forget to snag a great clutch for the season’s many cocktail parties and holiday gatherings. It’s the perfect size to fit all the essentials yet won’t distract from your outfit.
