Let's just blame it on Gossip Girl. Since that snooty chick started stalking the pretty princesses of the Upper East Side detailing their trials and tribulations, we have grown into a generation twith no qualms with stalking. We can then place blame for this cyber-stalking phenomenon on Instagram and social media as a whole. We follow people and shamelessly stalk their lives. We've all become voyeurs finding an almost-erotic pleasure in observing people's daily rituals, outstanding outfits, and toned bodies and we've come to identify them as #goals. We want to be them. We want to look like them. We want to learn how the f@$% they get that contour.
And while this could be a cause for concern I'll likely explore later in my RAMBLINGS sector, I'm thankful that it has become not only socially acceptable but celebrated for us to stalk. How else would we find outfit inspo for the chilly temps ahead that might freeze the tits off (let's not forget that excruciating Polar Vortex that vaguely resembled a death trap from Saw III)? These street style stars in the slideshow below serve up MAJOR style inspiration that reminds you getting dressed should be fun, even when it's as cold as 12 igloos outside. Looking cute in winter is no easy feat - but these fashionistas prove that you can look stylish and not catch hyperthermia.
And in case you're looking for a great new coat to invest in, here are 6 options that are dancing around my head like sugar plum fairies.
