Leather and animal prints are huge high-end outerwear trends this winter, but faux animal skins and fur achieve the same effect as the real thing. Leopard print is still big, especially in women’s coats, and short jackets are a great way to wear leather, whether real or fake.

If you prefer a more classic look but still want to stay on trend, try a duffle coat with fur trim. Ruffles are another pretty way designers are modernizing timeless coats. Or go straight-on classic with a camel coat. This classic style is everywhere this winter, with options to suit every budget. Crisp car coats and ladylike peak-shoulder belted coats look lovely as ever. Draped shapes, shawl collars, and soft colors provide further feminine touches.

Collarless jackets are among the sleeker looks, along with tailored, belted coats. But a softer, cozier appeal has made its way into winter outerwear for women. Blanket coats and maxi length jackets promise the ultimate in comfort and warmth this winter. Capes and capelets follow this warming trend and are ideal toppers for the chunky knit jumpers, tights, and dresses found everywhere this season.

Black is also showing up in women’s jackets with exciting splashes of candy-coated color on the runway; think licorice allsorts. Wear bright pink or mint-colored gloves with a black coat for a more affordable version of this look.

Boyish looks are appearing as well, with faux fur-trimmed parkas making a comeback. Following suit is the boyfriend coat and aviator jacket. The military influence seems here to stay, with stiff stand-up collars, shiny metal buttons, and form-fitting shapes in navy and black.

For an outdoorsy feel, try a shearling-trimmed jacket. It's warm and attractive, but also a little bit rustic. Or for a slightly more rugged look and durability, go with an olive hooded wax jacket. You'll be ready for adventure in the city or country.

Can't decide on a look? Some winter styles combine structure and softness. Try a coat-cape hybrid; you'll get the trendiness of a cape with the elegant fit of a classic coat. Or combine edginess with winter warmth when you wear a wool jacket with contrasting, shiny leather-look sleeves.

Finally, whatever your style, you're sure to find something you like this winter. Women’s jackets this season will keep you warm and cozy, but you don't have to give up looks for comfort. Mix it up a little; play off an ultra-feminine dress with a collarless leather jacket, or top a basic tee and jeans with a ruffled wool coat. That's what this season is all about! Purchase cute sweaters to go with the outwear you need from FashionMia stores.
