Wednesday Fashion Feature: Outerwear: What’s Good For Winter 09/10

Jack Frost is about to kick down the door on us, but at least you can look fly as you freeze your ass off.

See below for a rundown on some of the freshest outerwear this time around:

 

THE VARSITY JACKET:

 

Jay College Letterman by 55DSL

 

Charm Knit Varsity Jacket by Akademiks

 

Varsity jackets are a hot commodity right now, but these are not your typical college styles. Cool color combos and edgy stitched designs provide a more modern look.

 

THE DOWN PUFFA:

Aika Down Coat by Miss Sixty

 

Down puffa jackets are available in all shapes, sizes and fabric finishes. Get a glossy one, like the Aika Down Coat by Miss Sixty, or go for a classic look like the Chest Striped Snorkel Jacket by Triple F.A.T. Goose.

 

THE PARKA:

 

Denim Parka by True Religion

 

Metropolis Parka by The North Face

 

Grown up parkas are where it’s at this season. If you invest in a down piece, you can go for a sleek look and still stay very toasty.

 

MILITARY INSPIRED:

 

Amado Military Coat by Fornarina

 

Garrison II Coat by Zoo York

 

No need to O.D. on looking militant, subtle details like buttons or the shape of the jacket work for this look.

 

THE PLAID WOOL BIKER JACKET:

Plaid Motorcycle Jacket by William Rast

 

Plaid has been hot for a minute, as well as the rocker look. Get yourself a nice wool jacket like the ones above to keep you warm. The furry collar is a fresh added touch. Leather sleeves are becoming increasingly popular, namely denim and wool jackets such as the Plaid Motorcycle Jacket by William Rast (Justin Timberlake‘s hit clothing line).

 

THE LEATHER BOMBER:

 

Hooded Leather Bomber by MadeMe

 

Leather Bomber by Scotch & Soda

 

This season’s leather jacket is not the ridiculously over sized joint with rhinestones and embroidery all over it. Cop the more fitted bomber style for a clean updated look.
