It’s the second weekend in January and clearly winter on the east coast isn’t playing any games; you know with the bomb cyclone and all. Of course, I can safely say that from 3000 miles west in Los Angeles, where the most winter seasonal movement we’ve had are some overcast days and maybe possible drizzle tomorrow. This is not me complaining nor, bragging; though, it’s nice not to have to look like a polar bear every day to trek to work. Nonetheless, our most fashionable Instagram photo picks of the week are doing everything, stylishly possible to not let Old Man Winters fury stop them from being snow covered, street chic. Otherwise, at the very least they can post photos of their warm holidays that are winding down to remind us all of warmer times— just a week ago.
Singers Justine Skye and Teyana Taylor clearly make winter in New York look as saucy and effortless as imaginable. With Skye in a mixed orange and black statement fur coat paired with the color of the year Ultra Violet (which coincidentally happens to be the title of her debut album dropping January, 19th) on her tips; while Taylor’s long sleeved glimmering, high slit gown and fur stole were rocked supremely chic to ring in the New Year. Both actress Yara Shahidi and singer Jorja Smith are captured in two stylish versions of “how to wear your outerwear,” respectively; dressed up or dressed down all of which put a spin on embarking within the jaw dropping temps.
Music Video and TV Director Melina Matsoukas cleverly, provides us with a grand view of the ancient Egyptian pyramids in a white patterned two-piece statement. The winter may have us wanting to hibernate until spring yet, actresses/singers Chole x Halle and Francia Raísa of the hit new show Grown-ish express that, you can still be bold in the winter; by layering vibrant colors and patterns which can brighten up anyone’s chilly blue mood.
Then there’s singer Stella Santana offering some dramatic boot envy in deep velvety turquoise to ring in her born day. Plus, can we just take a moment to discuss super model Imaan Hammam’s sheer, appliqué embellished jeans by Adam Selman? Not to mention, the beach scene behind her. These are our favorite, most stylish, standout InstaMUSE’s of the Week
