Keeping up appearances isn't easy when it's practically freezing, but don't let the dreary weather totally spoil your style. While we've all experienced days where sweatpants are all we can manage to slip on, all it takes is a little inspiration to get us excited about clothes again. Taken straight off of the streets of cities like New York, London, and Milan, these creative cold-weather street style outfits are truly a breath of fresh (not frozen) air.
These chic women, snapped on the sidewalks, manage to take our favorite basics and make them feel unique; jeans, booties, and a cozy scarf can seem surprisingly original when viewed with a new perspective. Read on to see how these stunning ladies are inspiring our Winter style, no fancy pants (or coats or dresses) necessary.
