As someone who grew up worrying that my hair would freeze if I went outside while it was wet, I can say with near certainty that people who say that they like the cold are lying. Or at least, that’s what I always thought. But now that ski-inspired fashion—see: Miu Miu’s, Givenchy’s, and Chanel’s F/W 21 collections—and excessive layering are *in* for winter, perhaps dressing for the cold won’t be so bad. In fact, maybe it will actually be enjoyable.
To test my theory, I went deep into an Instagram hole (as one does), scouring the feeds of the platform’s most stylish dressers who live in climates that aren’t sunny year-round. Think Stockholm, Paris, London, Copenhagen, and New York, among other locales. What I discovered was proof that, finally, trends are steering people in the way of dressing for the cold weather rather than fighting against it.
