This winter, it seems as if everyone has left their annual winter puffers in the attic, because so far, they’re nowhere to be found on the streets of New York. Teddy bear jackets, animal print jackets, leather jackets, and bright colored jackets; everyone seems to be bundling up in fashion. Left and right, it seems like everyone is leaving the house to make a statement. Now listen, we get it, it’s easy to be intimidated by this trend because buying a new winter coat is notoriously known for being pricy, and it’s so easy to stick to what you know—the hearty coat you trust, season after season. Although, if you do want to part ways from your trusted winter jacket, we can let you in on a little secret: The best part about this trend is that it does not actually cost that much money. Go to your local vintage shop or download a resale app, and you’ll discover a plethora of fun jackets.
Down below we are going to show you some winter inspiration from the FIT students themselves, showing you how to stay warm in style. Also, if you want to be featured on next week’s article don’t forget to hashtag #OutfitsofFIT in your next Instagram post!
