Would You Wear THIS in a Blizzard?

Feb 15 2014 - 11:00am

Don't underestimate the style prowess or sheer willpower of the street style set at Fashion Week [1]. Nothing comes between this style-conscious crowd and the latest (read: Spring 2014 [2]) looks, — not even freezing temperatures, icy streets, or a full-blown blizzard.

Still, it can't be easy braving the cold in a crop top. In honor of these sartorial warriors, we're taking a look at the most outrageous cold-weather looks to hit the streets at NYFW. And, more importantly, we ask you: would you wear these?

NYFW Day 8; Average: 34°F

We can't argue that the outfit is downright amazing, but unless you're being shuttled door to door and have an umbrella holder to walk you to the curb, we don't suggest trying this look in a blizzard.

Nicole Warne added a coat, but in 18°, we doubt that that's enough to warm her bare legs.

Nicole Warne's shoes are definitely Fashion Week worthy, we just don't know if they're blizzard worthy.

NYFW Street Style Day 5; Average: 34°F

She's totally on trend in her pink [9], but we have to argue that a trench coat is not nearly enough coverage in this cold.

The Hilton sisters doubled up on wrap dresses, but neither Paris nor Nicky brought a coat along.

From the looks of this outfit, you'd never guess it was freezing out — until you noticed the ice on the streets in the background.

NYFW Day 4; Average: 26°F

Nicole Warne looked lovely; we can't argue that — but we might suggest she cover up her midriff until it warms up.

NYFW Day 4; Average: 26°F

Exposed calves, open toes, and no coat made this cool — literally.

NYFW Day 3; Average: 25°F

Michelle Harper's next-to-naked look pushed the boundaries of appropriate Winter — or even Summer — wear.

NYFW Day 3; Average: 25°F

We admit, she looked amazing, but we wonder: was she freezing?

NYFW Day 2; Average: 27°F

Even with a coat on, could you stomach a crop top in 20 degrees?

NYFW Day 2; Average: 27°F

Don't let the sunshine fool you — it didn't get above the low 30s the day Aimee Song opted for a breezy printed dress and gladiator sandals.

NYFW Day 1; Average: 27°F

Apparently, she didn't want a coat getting in the way of the beautiful print on that dress.

The top said February, but those bare legs hinted at warmer Spring days.

Leigh Lezark wasn't going to let the Winter temps stop her from wearing a crop top.

NYFW Day 1; Average: 27°F

We hope she had some heating pads taped to her torso to help counter those side cutouts.

NYFW Day 1; Average: 27°F

Bare legs are a bold move when there's snow in the forecast — and on the ground.

NYFW Day 1; Average: 27°F

Aimee Song's ethereal BCBG layers might have been better suited for a warmer day.

NYFW Day 1; Average: 27°F

It takes a brave soul to opt for open-toed sandals in 20-degree temperatures.
