7 Cozy Looks To Copy — Stat

It's a cliché as old as the house of Chanel: Fashion people love cold weather. Warm, fuzzy scarves; bulky-but-cute sweaters; miniskirts with woolly tights. Anything that gives us an excuse to reach deep into our closets and pile on more clothes makes us as happy as pumpkin-spice lattes make Pinterest.
If you're not on the low-temp train yet, the seven looks ahead should change your mind. These mega-inspiring examples prove that fall-to-winter dressing doesn't have to be drab or formulaic — and that there's a lot to love about the season, even if it is already getting dark by the time our post-lunch drowse sets in.

Cold weather is the perfect time to bust out the capital-d Drama. Got a thrifted mink stole — or, ahem, an IKEA faux-sheepskin rug? Throw it haphazardly about your shoulders (over your coat is key) for that slightly batty heiress look.

Or, if the Grey Gardens thing isn't your speed, play up the simple, mod-ish lines of your go-to peacoat with a cropped, printed pant. If bare ankles are a no-go, just layer a pair of tights underneath.

In fifth grade, wearing one overall strap down meant you were the toughest kid in class (or watched a lot of Fresh Prince). Now, it means that you've found a genius way to wear your overalls and show off your fancy sweatshirt, too. We're impressed.

Wait a minute. We have an outfit just like this. We wear it on laundry day, and somehow it never looks this good. Props to the red lip and the massively chunky, two-tone scarf for giving this ensemble a panache that's way bigger than the sum of its parts. We kinda want to copy that scarf twist, too.

Who says fall's chunky, oversized knits have to come in soporific gray, army green, or brown? Everyone from Acne to Topshop is making sweaters of epic proportions, in a way-more-fun palette of pinks and baby blues. Grab yourself one, throw it on over an equally oversized men's shirt, add a beanie, and we bet you can go without a coat for another week, easy.

Exaggerated kimono-style sleeves on a coat are great. When the coat is made of cozy, puffy, hopefully down-filled fabric, you've stumbled upon the ultimate winter style grail: the fashion slanket.

On a fiercely, life-ruiningly cold day, the only thing better than a nice, warm coat is two nice, warm coats. This trick works especially well if your topcoat is of the standard, conservative variety. Just add a patterned bomber or your go-to denim jacket for some much-needed color and contrast. There, that should keep you away from feverishly shopping the J.Crew coat section — until next week.
