Can you wear lace in the winter? The answer is absolutely yes! The key to look seasonally appropriate in lace when it's cold outside is to choose pieces in rich, saturated colors that look seasonally on-point, such as the emerald green pants and tunic pictured here. (A long lace skirt or dress in deep green, burgundy, or navy blue would also work well in winter). Topping it all off, adding cozy warmth, and tying this stylish winter outfit together — a versatile, shaggy, black faux fur coat.

Here, an exotic animal skin purse gets a trendy upgrade from design house Miu Miu, with the addition of a multi-color faux fur strap.
