As the saying goes, "less is more" and that can easily be seen in this Understated Chic look.  With a few key pieces and the striking juxtaposition of their high-low vibe, this look works and works well.  A soft and sleek cardi gets wrapped in luxury when worn beneath an oversized animal print coat.  Pair it with a luxe bag and playful pom pom beanie and you're ready for a chilly weekend ahead.

There's a reason why the film Dr. Zhivago is a classic beyond it being an epic tale.  Julie Christie beautifully depicted the role of Lara by so gracefully embracing furs and mufflers thus romanticizing winter weather accessories to equally epic proportions.  Give this look a try yourself by finding the perfect faux fur shawl collar coat.  Top it with a so chic rabbit fur hat and some ethereal glow-getting luminizers from Bobbi Brown and you'll be beckoning back to days of drama and intrigue.

Perhaps my favorite of all winter chic styles is that of Street Chic.  Gutsy, glam and branding a sense of urban appeal all its own.  To get the look yourself, start off simple and sleek with a great pair of wear-with-all leggings.  These favorites from Spanx will quickly become a must-have in your closet collection.  Pair them with something easy like this chunky knit turtleneck sweater and an easy to wear camel colored cape by Derek Lam.  Finally, complete your outfit by keeping your accessories basic yet brilliant with options like this Emilio Pucci printed fold-over clutch, a floppy wide-brimmed hat and these covetable over the knee black leather '5050' boots by Stuart Weitzman.

With choices like these, you won't be needing {or wanting!} to avoid the cold weather days ahead nearly as much.  Have a beautiful Monday everyone!
