We're all for wearing even our most summery of dresses come Winter, but it can be a tricky seasonal balance to strike. The key to getting this look right? It's all about layering, and we're showing you how to do so — like a pro. Simply pair a silky printed shirt dress (we prefer the kind that hits around the knee area) with a fur jacket and ankle boots for a look that's as cool as it is cozy. Here's a tip: when shopping for the perfect furry coat, make sure the silhouette hits you right around — or a little higher than — the waist to avoid extra bulkiness. The result? A highly textural cold-weather getup that's high on style points and might possibly get you snapped on the streets during New York Fashion Week if you just so happen to be in NYC. Shop our three mapped-out outfits below, and, of course, don't forget to don a pair of lined tights for extra insulation!From left to right: Mulberry Wild Lamb Fur Cropped Jacket ($1,227, originally $2,045), Topshop Letter Print Shirt Dress ($100), ASOS Altitude Leather Jodhpur Ankle Boots ($96), Velvet Alana Coat ($110, originally 275), 3.1 Phillip Lim Floral Shirt Dress ($750), Acne Pistol Boot ($399, originally $570), Muubaa Shearling Biker Jacket ($749, originally $1,071), Mara Hoffman Printed Crepe Shirt Dress ($204, originally $370), Nasty Gal Boyfriend Ankle Boot ($178)
Alessandra Ambrosio has been spotted around town sporting boho-chic dresses and cozy-cool sweaters that prove that even with a baby bump, you can still be fashionable. This time around, while running errands in Brentwood, the model mom donned a Gypsy 05 sheer printed maxi that subtly show off her stems. She toughened up her flowing frock with a Muubaa leather jacket and black snakeskin Rachel Zoe flats, then upped the cool factor with a pair of Wayfarer shades. Re-create this ensemble with a sheer maxi, black flats, and killer shades for a day of shopping with the girls, then toss on a black leather jacket and matching scarf when the temps drop.
