There's a crisp chill in the air, which means that it’s time to throw on your favorite chic outerwear and cozy up in elegant shawls, scarves, ponchos, and jackets! It’s easy to throw on a coat and scarf, but you can get a little fancy and creative while staying warm. There are plenty of effortless ways to dress up outerwear for women. Keep reading for foolproof styling tips that will give your chilly weather looks a sophisticated pop.
1. Pair Statement Outerwear With A Turtleneck
One practical and stylish way to dress up in the winter is wearing statement jackets over turtlenecks. Layering is a chic approach to keeping warm while featuring different textures in your outfit. Turn heads with everything from classic animal print to reversible faux suede jackets. Your turtleneck will not only complement your coat, but it'll also keep your neck warm.
When it's not too cold, you'll want light outerwear stocked in your closet. Women's casual jackets are perfect for crisp autumn days when you want to look put-together and have a little warmth without bringing along a heavy formal coat. For example, wear a classic blazer with a dress shirt underneath for a low-key look that'll shield you from moderate breezes.
For extra warmth without the bulk, a women's lightweight jacket is an investment staple. Our puffers come with stylish details, faux fur trimming, sophisticated mock necklines, and metallics. Added bonus: a puffer won't add too much weight to your everyday carry if you’re traveling or on the road. Plus, they won't clutter your closet.

4. Navigate Season Transitions With Ponchos
As the weather cools down, women's ponchos are great if you need easy-to-layer pieces. Cloak yourself in a whisper-weight cashmere poncho wrap. Take on a timeless look with a neutral solid or go for bold with a pattern like animal print. You can also make your style more standout with luxurious details such as subtle cable-knitting. While our cashmere shawl wraps are a fan favorite, we also have high-quality wool blends and cotton selections as well.
With the billowy elegance of a go-to wrap, keep your look balanced by pairing it with slim trousers. Whether you're partial to a solid or plaid shawl, drape it effortlessly over a pair of cigarette pants for a posh outfit. You can also keep it casual chic with leggings, many of which come tailored like pants without sacrificing comfort. Elevate your style even further with eye-catching faux leather or suede leggings!
6. Drape One Side of Your Scarf Over Your Shoulder
There are endless ways to style a scarf. You can throw it around your shoulders, tie it like a belt, or create an asymmetrical wrap. But for style in a pinch, simply drape one side of your scarf over your shoulder — et voilà, you've got a look that's chic and easy.
