We're not about to let a little snow or ice stand in the way of a good outfit — especially since we'll be dealing with six more weeks of Winter. Punxsutawney Phil's proclamation wasn't exactly what we were hoping for, but we'll certainly make the best of it. That doesn't mean going bare-legged or refusing to bundle up — remember, we want to look stylish, not clueless — but we refuse to wear a sleeping bag masquerading as a coat.
Clearly, this street styled crew knows the feeling, showing off a set of Winter-ready outfits that don't include oversize puffers or snow pants. Instead, their looks inspire a sleek, pulled-together standard for your cold-weather style, because a little inclement weather should never stand in the way of a great outfit. Click through for the inspiration, and prepare to layer up in style.
