Even snowbanks can't stop the most determined of street style stars. To inspire you as the weather starts to get iffy, with flurries and flakes on the radar, we rounded up a whole batch of ladies who clearly said something along the lines of, "Take this, snowstorm."
It was with a large cheer that we noticed a slew of stylish women wearing their (comfortable) sneakers out and about in place of ankle booties and pumps. Fashion editor Laurel Pantin used a bright red pair of Nikes to finish off an outfit that would work just as well with a more formal shoe. A chunky turtleneck worn under a double-breasted navy coat felt East Coast collegiate, while cropped leather trousers were a surefire editor staple. Her bold accessory choices didn't stop at the cherry kicks, either. She finished things off with a yellow Reece Hudson clutch and smoky lilac shades. Shop the outfit we put together here.
