From everyday ensembles to red-carpet premieres, celebrities are having a full-on love affair with fur coats, but we particularly love the cool-girl flair Kate Moss's baby-blue topper added to her street-chic ensemble. The model styled her luxe topper with a black turtleneck sweater, distressed jeans, celeb-approved Isabel Marant boots, and a two-toned tassel necklace while shopping around London. Get inspired by Kate's playful pairing by working a light-blue fur topper with a black turtleneck and worn-in denim, or add a bit of holiday cheer to your favorite ensemble with this oxblood faux-fur Topshop jacket ($170).
Where Winter accessories are concerned, the snood is king. Call it what you will — circle scarf, infinity scarf — by any other name it's just as cool. Why exactly? Scarves are a staple, yes, but the snood is quickly gaining popularity in our closets for its unmatched functionality. Because it's just one easy piece, it's that much easier to throw on in a hurry without worrying if you've tied or knotted it just the right way. It really does the work for you — add it on as a final layer for cozy comfort or just plain style (we're not judging). In supple, begs-to-be-touched furry finishes or in sweet knits and eye-catching prints and patterns, these pieces make it that much more possible to give your cold-weather outfit a cool-girl finish. Just click on to see why we're a little snood-obsessed as of late, and shop 11 of our favorites.
Looking for a way to spice up your Winter wardrobe? How about trying a chic topper! From beanies to berets and Winter fedoras, we've curated a cool-girl selection of must-have hats to make any cold-weather ensemble a win. Watch now and let us know which is your favorite below! On Allison McNamara: Myne top, Hale Bob vest, Bauble Bar jewelry.
Olivia Palermo is known for mixing and matching cool prints and vibrant colors, but her latest NYC look proves monochromatic looks are anything but boring. Olivia balanced her textured black-on-black outfit — fur-trim Felder Felder coat, military-inspired brocade top, and coated Paige pants ($269) with nude ankle-strap pumps, then injected major flair with a gemstone chain-link belt and a brilliant Christian Dior suede clutch. Channel Olivia's A plus ensemble by layering a fur-trim topper over a military-inspired jacket and her exact leather bottoms, then attach a jeweled brooch to a gold chain belt to really nail her street-chic style.
Celebrities have a million excuses to dress up — another premiere, another red carpet, another dinner, or award show — so who better to cull a little party-dressing inspiration from? We've had our eye on this pack of glamazons, like Olivia Palermo, Brooklyn Decker, and Ashley Madewke, making the rounds in sparkly cocktail dresses, peplum-trimmed sheaths, and even a jumpsuit or two (more on that inside!) as they've hit their respective events. Now, we're giving you a monthlong recap on their gorgeous ensembles to repurpose for your most eventful time of the year. Hoping to nail down your look for the big office party? Or seeking out the perfect little party dress for your best friend's fete? Click on for 31 days of holiday-party material, all courtesy of some very fabulously, festively attired celebs.

In a perfect world, the sky's the limit when it comes to spending. While that's not the case for most of us, it shouldn't stop you from gifting your beloved friends and family with something extra special this holiday season. To prove our point, we've hand-picked 12 pieces that are high on luxury, yet surprisingly low on the spending scale. From plush faux fur snoods to handsome, menswear-inspired watches, shop our picks in the slideshow. Click on — you've got to see them to believe.
In quite the holiday-appropriate twist, we've found a street styler whose outfit artfully (and easily) displays the season's most festive hues against a covet-worthy mix of Winter staples. The best part? It's a look that's simple to copy and comes equipped with the cool-girl functionality to take you well into the New Year. First up: layer a casual tee — any color will work — under a classic textured red sweater. While this chic subject donned a ribbed version, we're opting for a timeless cable-knit iteration instead. Then, make that bold red pop against a more subtle olive green. Her fur-lined hooded parka is the perfect excuse to boast those holiday hues front and center, but it's also incredibly chic in that snow bunny kind of way. To keep it polished and minimal elsewhere, add black skinny jeans and a black flat ankle boot. If you're battling inclement weather, a close-cut riding-inspired rain boot will bode well, too. We're happy to report that that's it . . . seriously. If you're feeling this mix of red, green, and cold-weather awesome, shop our look below.
