‘Tis the season…

For a chill in the air. As the polar vortex blasted through the East Coast last week, New Yorkers layered up in sweaters, scarves and all sorts of plush outerwear, from puffers and double-breasted wool coats to lush furs. (A few even donned Santa suits for SantaCon, the annual bar crawl tradition that either plagues the streets or makes them more festive, depending on your point of view.)

Overall, Manhattanhites proved that practical winter dressing and great style aren’t mutually exclusive: many of them spiced up their looks with bold prints and statement accessories, such as leopard-print booties and hot pink gloves.
