Whether it’s a dress for a big date or simply the perfect white tee, we’ve addressed every question you could imagine. This inspired us to create a new series, Trust Me—I’m an Editor, which allows you, the reader, to get in on the action. What sartorial dilemmas are you facing right now? What problem can we apply our extensive shopping knowledge to? You can shoot us questions via Instagram or our Facebook shopping group, So… Should I Buy This? Don’t be shy—we know you want to.

One question we were asked on our shopping group this week was “Can I wear a trench coat yet?” To answer this question, I looked at the street style pictures from New York Fashion Week, wherein the middle of a snowstorm, editors and street style stars are wearing trenches and don’t look blue.

Four stylish but sensible looks stood out to me, and luckily, they all use clever tricks to make your trench warm enough for February. It’s all about artful layering using chunky knitwear, knee-high boots and hidden thermals. Keep scrolling to see how New Yorkers are wearing trench coats in the snow, and then shop each look.
