How to Get Sarah Jessica Parker's Winter Outfit

SJP Gets the Cold-Weather Equation Just Right — and Makes It Look Easy

As a seasoned New Yorker, Sarah Jessica Parker knows how to dress for the Winter elements, run errands, and pick up son James Wilkie from school — all without falling victim to an abyss of unflattering layers and a puffer-jacket-induced marshmallow silhouette. And get this: her styling trick isn't really a trick at all. It's just a matter of sticking to the cold-weather basics and not losing sight of your form. Thus, we're taking a closer look at exhibit A (yet another awesome SJP display of denim, ankle boots, and the perfect subzero topper) to cull the best quick tips on how to get her cozy-chic Winter look.

  • We know that on really cold days, there's just no avoiding the heavier outerwear options. That's why we're taking a page out of Sarah Jessica's book and going the flattering-form route. When opting for a thicker jacket — whether it be a puffer jacket or a slicker leather version like SJP's Belstaff jacket — look for a shorter cut (so you're not drowning in the length) and one that's equipped with a wide waist belt. As shown by SJP, being able to cinch your top layer can easily add serious definition to your shape.
  • Don't skimp on the cozy accessories. Listen, if it's freezing outside, you most definitely need a hat, gloves, a scarf, the works. We love how SJP incorporated a cool set of luxe-looking accents into her outfit — see her blue chenille-textured beanie and tan suede gloves peeking out of her pocket for a little extra inspiration. Our only advice: pick one accessory that pops (like her blue beanie) and let the other pieces act as a neutral complement.
  • It's no surprise that SJP would get the denim + boot equation just right, mostly because we spot her almost every day in some cool-girl variation of the above. Today's fare, though, reminds us that an ever-so-slouchy, shearling-lined pair of ankle boots are the perfect solution to the always-present quandary of what to wear when it's cold. If you're going to follow suit, just make sure to choose jeans (cuffed or naturally ankle-cut will both suffice) that cut close to your body. In other words, make sure your denim fits you like a glove. You don't want to end up with a baggy jean and relaxed boot situation on bottom — it will make all the cinching up top look uneven.
