Life’s too short to look like you’re walking around in a sleeping bag.

So how do you stay warm — and more important, look cool — in the kind of blustery, unpredictable weather we’ve been experiencing? Designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright’s solution to this city girl conundrum: “Coat and boots!”

To live percussion courtesy of Atoms for Peace, the duo sent out winter essentials that exude attitude and grace: tough quilted bombers with shearling, vintage relaxed jeans, elevated varsity jackets in camo jacquard.

But the heart-stopper: a billowy parka with shearling trim and some high-fashion corset detailing on the side. Black patent leather boots with a sturdy platform heel completed the show’s grit-meets-polish feel. They seemed comfortable enough to rush through city streets when Uber surcharges strike, and sleek enough to fit right into cocktail hour. Bring it, polar vortex.
