Staying chic in the chill is the goal of the season, and, for better or worse, layering up is the way to go. So, to get some extra cold-weather inspo, we turned to this sunny-with-a-bit-of-breeze street-style snap that proves not all outerwear needs to be drab and gray. Instead, May Buranasiri's bright faux-fur vest insists that shells can be statement pieces, too. We love the unusual mix of lengths, as she pairs her topper with a flowy maxi skirt. Best of all, her black-and-basic accessories (booties, necklace, mini-Céline, and camera) root the stand-out vest, making the look super wearable no matter the occasion. Sure, these days you might need to stick an oversized scarf, or even a leather jacket, underneath the vest, but we're still digging the idea of warm-and-cozies as an outfit's focal point. How do you feel about letting your coat take a walk on the wild side? Give it to us straight in the comments below.
