Layering season has officially arrived and before you know it the coats will be coming out. We always put ourselves through the process of deciding if we need a new winter jacket, or if last years will do. Canadian weather puts us in jackets for most of the year, and while some of us enjoy the weather, the other half is struggling on how to look chic and cool while walking through snow. Yes, it gets cold but that doesn’t mean we have to give up our sense of style. We have rounded up our favorite outerwear styles we will be trying come the winter.
We love the ease the wrap coat brings to our lives. It’s elegant, classy, and sophisticated, and must reside in every woman’s closet. It’s the-to coat when in doubt, and has an overall effortless vibe. Whether it’s an occasion or a casual outing the wrap coat will elevate your look and you will get great wear out of.

Shearling Moto Jacket
Think of this jacket as your winter leather jacket. Same idea with the motto belt and edgy hardware but in a suede fabric, lined with shearling. It definitely reads an edgy, retro, biker style but it will keep you warm and on trend.

We always want to try and touch the fur pieces but never dare to wear them because they are extra. But we all need that faux fur jacket in our closet to unleash the inner diva and take a walk on the wild side. Not only will this jacket keep you exceptionally warm, but you will turn heads and have compliments thrown at you.

We love that the puffer coat is coming back in style with a sophisticated sporty edge. Not only are they the warmest jackets, but the colours and fabrics the jacket has been introduced in will have you wanting to buy one ASAP. We personally love the oversized style in a brighter hue to brighten our days in the winter.
Shop the Look: Short Quilted Jacket, $129, available at Zara
Checkered Print Coat
We have seen the check print on major runways and we love the masculine touches it adds to a feminine outfit. If you’re used to wearing a classic black coat, a checkered print is a subtle way to change it up but still have a coat that will go with your work attire as well as casual weekends.
