11 Winter Finds That You Can Actually Wear In Miami

Forget dreaming of a white Christmas. We’re just hoping the temperature drops low enough that we can wear our knee-high boots, and if we’re really lucky, maybe even a leather jacket.

That doesn’t mean we can’t rock this season’s top trends without sweating—from faux-fur vests to light ponchos, we’ve rounded up 11 not-so-toasty winter finds that are Miami-proof. So, quit your longing for cold December nights (shivering isn’t a cute look anyway) and get inspired by some seasonal staples that look cool, but don’t require you to be, well, cold.
