For those of us above the Mason Dixon line, staying stylish while building a winter-ready wardrobe is no joke—it’s tough to make a puffy coat and ski boots look cute. Luckily, we can leave our outfit inspiration to Gigi Hadid, who proved this weekend she’s got the whole chilly-yet-chic thing on lock.
This week, the 21-year-old model stepped out to brave the New York City winter while still managing to show a little skin, showing off her post Victoria’s Secret body in a casual, fitted crop top, flared jeans, and short fur coat. Typically, fur coats tend to recall images of high-end society ladies in pearls or perhaps some Beyoncé-worthy black tie swag, but the genius of Gigi’s cute crop look is that it’s casual AF.
The key is in the styling. There’s no better way to make a glam coat casual enough for running errands than to pair it with the reigning queen of casual chic looks: the white tee and jeans. The best part is, Hadid’s coat looks so damn fluffy, we’re guessing she doesn’t even feel a crop top induced chill.

Further simplifying a potentially fussy look is Hadid’s hair and makeup. A simple slicked back pony and minimally made up face add the right amount of freshness to keep the whole look looking young.
Whether you prefer the real deal or have more of an affinity for faux, look for fluffy toppers high in volume and beat the winter wardrobe blues with the right combo of form meets function. Bring on the snow flurries—even when you’re showing a little skin.
