Winter Outerwear Favorites 2012

Here are my must haves (or “definitely wants”) for winter outerwear this year! I made this collage to show you what’s hot/my picks for outwear this season. Most of my choices are very affordable, and the ones that aren’t necessarily budget-friendly (hello shearling leather jacket and Burberry scarf!) are available in more affordable versions in stores like Macy’s and Nordstrom!
For example, I have this Burberry type of scarf from Macy’s in two different colors and each was under $20! Another reason why you do not need to spend thousands to have a beautiful and stylish wardrobe!
Bright colors are so much fun for winter and examples like this red pea coat and tailored mustard blazer are perfect examples of two on-point colors for this season. These two pieces are super easy to style with fun scarves as well, go crazy!
Fur and leopard continue to be on trend this winter. Fur vests can be easily dressed up or down and this cute fur stole is a simple and affordable piece that will instantly transform your old standby coat or sweater.
Tweed jackets are warm and stylish for the office turned night out. I love this particular one which is embellished with classic metal hardware.
Leather jackets are perfect for those freak days where we aren’t getting nailed with incredible amounts of snow. The shearling neck version I included works perfectly for chilly days, as it is lined with faux fur.
What are your winter must have outwear picks?

    Just found your blog and I couldn’t agree more with you about your winter favorites. I really like this post and I love the idea of a bright trench in cold weather and the faux fur is my absolute fave trend right now

    I love the colors of this winter collection. It is still summer here but I want to go online clothes shopping for winter stuff.
