Colder temps don't mean we'll be surrendering our right to slip into our favorite little dresses. Instead of looking at the chill as a death sentence for pretty frocks, think of it as an opportunity to get creative with the rest of your closet. The slinky dress worn alone in Summer can look just as fab layered up to fight the cold with soft knits, cozy cardigans, and the perfect tights and booties. We've layered up one great find and given this Rachel Comey Dress ($202, originally $403) three Winter-ready looks — taking it from the early chill straight through to snowy days. Just click through for our styling tips and tricks, then shop the looks!
These are not your grandma's furs. Zac Posen, who recently announced a desire to present his spring 2011 collection during Paris Fashion Week where "they understand the clothes," has released a new fur collection with Pologeorgis, a NYC-based manufacturer that also works with Chado Ralph Rucci and Chris Benz. Ever the showman, Posen's collection includes patchwork fox fur jackets and over-the-top, colorful coats dyed with blasts of lavender, red, and green.
