As the temperature drops ever so slightly, stylish stars such as Marion Cotillard, Carey Mulligan and Alicia Vikander are taking to the red carpet in layered-up looks featuring cozier fabrics and loose-fitting silhouettes. Cue our running to the shops for chic chalet-inspired outfits that are seasonally appropriate and totally on trend.
Leading the parade of layers this week was French actress Marion, who brilliantly paired a black cocktail-length turtleneck dress and cape with red velvet boots for a New York photo-op to promote Macbeth, in which she stars alongside Michael Fassbender (who, coincidentally, also induces warm and fuzzy feelings.) Naturally, the 40-year-old Dior ambassador was wearing the French label head-to-toe in a bid to prove the queen of effortless elegance.
Suffragette star Carey stepped out in London this week in a floor-length jacquard gown that looked as polished and sophisticated as it did comfy and ultra wearable. The 30-year-old actress donned a Gucci Spring 2016 geometric column dress embroidered with bird and flower details at the 2015 British Independent Film Awards.
"It" model Gigi Hadid is enjoying a high-fashion moment now, both on and off the runway. Dashing through the streets of New York, the gorgeous Victoria's Secret model displayed her serious street-style game in a nude Self-Portrait military maxi-dress with a matching wool coat by Topshop Unique draped over her shoulders. It was the perfect bright ensemble for a warmer-than-usual winter in New York.
Around the globe in Berlin, Alicia Vikander proved that a cozy Rag & Bone sweater can be an elegant choice when paired with a fitted pencil skirt and black booties. Her co-star, Eddie Redmayne, was the picture of winter perfection in a plaid Valentino suit at the London première of The Danish Girl.
Lupita Nyong'o, Miranda Kerr and Jennifer Connelly also made our list for their winter-ready ensembles. And when the mercury inevitably drops below zero, you'll want to take your cues from these impeccable ladies, who will be as warm as they are well-heeled all season long.
