Even as the weather grows colder and more unbearable, we ladies continue to try and look our best. It may sometimes be difficult to find clothes that look amazing and keep us warm at the same time. When we face such situations, we can always look back at the Fall Winter runway collections of famous designers. We can get winter outfit ideas by finding out the popular trends we see on those runways. Some of these trends are:

Faux fur

The ethical faux fur is one of the most popular trends this winter. We saw them on the Fall Winter 2012 runways of famous design houses like Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, Emilio Pucci, and many more. This “hot” trend is used to create jackets, coats, vests, bags, boots, etc. It is also popularly used as shearling for boots, coats, capes, and bags, which can be worn more subtly. Faux fur keeps you warm and snug while it adds a stylish look to your outfit.


Keep warm this winter with a trendy hat that suits your style. We saw different types of hats on the runway for this year’s winter fashion. While design houses like Giorgio Armani showcasing berets and slanted fedoras, military-inspired hats were used by Max Mara. Beanies are popular as high-street wear; you can also incorporate street wear clothes with popular runway style hats.


Tweed is one of the most classic winter wear materials. The material has constantly been developed and made in artistic and colorful prints, so you don’t look like a granny while wearing something in tweed. Tweed jackets, coats, trousers, etc. give you style and comfort at the same time. Giorgio Armani’s 2012 winter collection delivers masculine tweed suits, while Prada brings back retro-style printed tweed trouser suits.

Slate grey, navy blue, and burgundy

These are the most popular colors used by most of the designers to create this year’s winter collection. Karl Lagerfeld uses a lot of slate grey in the Chanel winter collection. A pencil skirt for work, an oversized sweater, or a pair of trousers are the best way to wear the stylish slate grey color.

Burgundy can look great on a dress, a jacket, a cape, and almost every other winter wear. Designers like Jason Wu and Diane Von Furstenberg has made a lot of creations in burgundy for this year’s winter collection. Even the famous street wear fashion house, Rag & Bone, produces gorgeous jackets in different hues of burgundy. This color works especially well with winter clothes, as it adds a certain warmth to your look.

Navy blue is combined with black in numerous designer winter wear collections. Cocktail dresses, skirts, trousers, and sweaters are some of the main types of clothes that are displayed in this regal navy blue color.

Military style

One of the key trends of this year’s winter fashion, military style, has made a big comeback. Designers like Prabal Gurung, Tommy Hilfiger, and Victoria Beckham showcased different creations inspired by military clothes. Trench coats, dresses, capes, and boots were some of the popular items that were incorporated with military wear. Be sure to get at least one statement piece of winter clothing that has a military theme.
