Whether you’re chasing after the kids in the snow like Sarah Jessica Parker or ticking the trendy items off your must-have list like Vanessa Hudgens, look no further than these Hollywood stars for your winter coat inspiration.

 

Gwyneth Paltrow: The Haute Minimalist
Forget embellishment and distracting details: For you, the beauty in clothing is the simplicity of a gorgeous cut and fabulous fabric. And while you’re rarely susceptible to trends, there is one runway style that’ll have a place in your cold-weather wardrobe for seasons to come: the classic but ultra-long wool coat. It works with anything from pants to dresses of any length, taking the guesswork out of getting dressed and leaving you to your organic/vegan/gluten-free baking.

 

Rachel Bilson: The Trendy Stylista
The military trend is a runway regular, and this season is no exception. The best piece to forward-march into your closet is a military-esque coat – and we’ll definitely be seeing this style on Hollywood’s young starlets as they get into the wintertime groove! Will you join them? After all, with metal buttons, epaulettes, a double-breasted style and wide lapels, there’s no reason not to love the army influence. (Teen heartthrob boyfriend not included.)

 

Sarah Jessica Parker: The City Slicker
Choose your puffer coat correctly and you won’t have to save it for snowstorms and chasing the kids – or acting like one! – in the park. Translation? Forget the boxy, oversized, fit-for-the-Michelin-Man style and check out runways like Altuzarra and Mulberry for inspiration. Look for a cinched-in shape (belted or not) that isn’t too puffy and comes complete with a cute hood. This style is functional for everyday wear, but don’t be afraid to pair your utilitarian staple with something a little bit dressier for evening looks. It’s all about unexpected pairing for effortless (read: SJP-worthy) chic.

 

Ivanka Trump: The Elegant Exec
If your style credo is sophisticated classics, there is no better buy than a belted wool coat. Opt for a go-with-everything-neutral like camel or black, or have a little whimsy and choose a shocking cobalt or red hue. Either way, seek a style that hits at the knee (the ideal length to team with the season’s pencil skirts) and is forgiving enough to layer a suit jacket underneath. The great thing about a classic style? It’s a blank slate – just add colour, pattern or shine via accessories to make your executive-babe ensemble look like a million bucks, even if you don’t have the Trump budget just yet.

 

Jennifer Lopez: The Glamour Girl
Whether you choose to go a little bit boho (think Isabel Marant and Matthew Williamson) or utterly uptown glossy (Dolce & Gabbana, dahling!), channel your inner J. Lo and think touchy-feely fur this winter. Go for anything from a small accent on a collar or cuff to a full-on fur chubby. The plush stuff makes for a decidedly fashionable – not to mention super-fun! – way to stay warm while looking adorable this winter.
