Each week a celeb stylist answers YOUR questions. This week, we’re discussing how to look cute when you have to bundle up in the cold. We also address how to look cute if you’re planning a winter trip, like skiing!

For this week’s ‘ask a stylist’ series we chatted with celeb stylist Isabel Dupré, who has had the privilege of working with some of the most stylish stars around, including Jennifer Lopez and Angelina Jolie. Isabel answered your questions regarding how to look cute in the cold and what to wear when you’re taking winter vacations. Read on for her expert tips and tricks!

To look cute running errands in the cold:
“I still love the UGG boots. The classic ones in black. Nice when they have a little personal touch (few studs maybe, something with a do-it-yourself vibe). If I need to carry a lot, my must-have is the Prada nylon back pack. They are expensive, but I have had mine for years so it is an investment piece. Always a hat, nothing too weird – just a nice wool hat.If feet and head are covered you’re all good. Montclair is great for very warm and light jackets, and the collaboration with great designers made very cute products. Keep the proportions right. If you’re bulky on top, you will need skinny legs, so I recommend leggings or skinny jeans. Finish the look with sunglasses, if it is sunny.”

What to wear on ski vacations:
“Skiing with the right gears. Forget fashion, go for the pros. Gortex is needed. Killy, North Face has great stuff — it’s classic and not too hip. Number one item: sunscreen (Face Place collagens moisturizer with SPF 15). Fashion item: the fur snood from Helmut Lang, it’s affordable and soooo soft. Après ski: Moon boots with leggings are still the most flattering thing, from the real thing to Chanel’s. A pair of Wolford tights, if really cold. Pair a sexy T-shirt under a warm sweater, layering is key to adapt. Ralph Lauren has very nice cashmere dresses that could work too and great après ski pieces — and keep the fur snood.”
