Okay. We get it. Winter is hell for being stylish. And while we were trying to figure out new ways of keeping fashionably warm last season, a few designers were also getting creative with what we can only describe as high-fashion Snuggies. We love our grandmother as much as Paul Smith does, and we have fond memories of cuddling up in her hand-knitted afghan throw, but we're not sure we want to hit the streets wearing it. Sure, they're warm, cozy, and intricately detailed, but do these looks deserve a spot in our closets or should they stay on our beds?
