By the end of January, we often fall into a slump style-wise—mostly because we’re focused on staying warm, dry and out of the cold. So, in an effort to beat that rut, we’ve bookmarked lots of easy outfit ideas from our favorite bloggers who make cozy and chic winter dressing look effortless. The best part? These looks are so simple to recreate that most of the pieces are likely already in your closet! Style isn’t always about creating a fancy and complicated look. Sometimes the chicest outfits are just about feeling polished and put together.

We love how The Stripe’s Grace Atwood, pictured above, puts her shearling vest and red beanie to work in order to take this classic denim/sweater combo up a notch. It’s cozy, functional and cute—an instant formula for fashion success! Take another cue from Grace by finishing your own ensemble off with a pair of heeled booties, too.
When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with black and white—especially if stripes are involved. We love Christine’s earmuffs, which are a fun alternative to the beanie this winter. It’s all about rethinking your go-to cold weather accessories in order to make fashion feel fun again, even when all you really want to reach for this winter is a pair of leggings and an oversized hoodie.
We love this winter white look on Meghan. It’s light, bright and cozy, and will make you pop against the dreary mid-season landscape. Try punching up this neutrals-based look with a vibrant red lip and your favorite skinny silhouette blue jeans. A non-fussy top knot and a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses finish the ensemble in Hollywood-approved style.
We’re digging the rocker-chic vibes on Sara and Natalie with their colorful faux fur jackets. Although sites like Topshop and ASOS offer plenty of options, we challenge you to try hunting down your own statement faux fur coat at thrift or antique stores. Your pals will be hounding you for details on where you found your fabulous fuzzy outerwear!
Speaking of coats, why not go all out with an extra-bright hue? You’re guaranteed to stand out from the crowd, and it’s the perfect single piece to invest in this winter when budgets are typically on the tighter end post-holidays. Take a cue from Monica and keep the rest of your outfit fairly neutral to make sure that the coat is the standout piece it’s meant to be.
