    From innovative outerwear to out of this world accoutrements, these show attendees know how to stay fly in these frigid temps.

    Ndoema of TheGlobalGirl.com was on trend in black and white separates, offsetting an all ebony look with a snow colored cape, clutch, and sunglasses.

    Glamour Magazine Editor Rajni Jacques is a master at layering, and tied a warm flannel shirt under a comfy black coat.

    Joshua Kissi of Street Etiquette went for military chic in an olive toned double breasted topper and scrunched pants. Get into those exposed socks!

    Christine Ng of Pop Sugar played with textures, sliding a fur stole over a leather and wool jacket. I loved her accessories, especially her Alexander Wang booties and Givenchy purse!
    Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t embrace brights! Ambika stood out in a sea of blacks and grays in a neon accented maxi dress.

    The fabulous Daisy Lewellyn of Fab.com also incorporated vibrant accents with a scarf, wallet, and a hot pink lip.
    Noe also worked with colors in his own way, adding a pop to his conservative outfit with lipstick red pants.

    Legs bare, don’t care! C. Michelle of CMichelleStyles.com adopted my personal mantra, showing off her gams in a sequined mini skirt.

    Print on print is always chic (when done correctly). Athanaelle showed she knew what she was doing in layered polka dots.
    Prints were also on tap for Shunda, who accented a patterned suit with gold pumps and a turquoise top.
    Olu uplifted a collegiate look with a knit beanie perched precipitously on his head.

    And lastly Celia Smith of Essence.com layered to the limit with black and gray pieces, then added a bit of interest with bright red lips.
    That does it!
