Women's Winter Jacket Styles

Women's Winter Jackets

When I think of women's winter jackets I think of something more casual than a coat. I think of parkas, down and fleece jackets from sellers like Land's End, Eddie Bauer and Sport's Authority. I think of short, hip length or mid thigh length jackets of nylon or leather, with warm removeable linings, with or without hoods.

Land's End has some very nice women's winter jackets, and some of them are rated to -20 degrees Fahrenheit. What's so nice about these jackets is that they use a new ThermaCheck fleece lining that is much thinner than down. But, a lot of women do like down and it's easy to find women's down winter jackets. These jackets are generally casual and have hoods.

Columbia Sportsware is a very popular maker of women's winter jackets. Columbia women's winter jackets are for serious winter weather as well as for those who love winter activities like hiking, skiing and snowboarding. Some Columbia women's winter jacket styles have detachable hoods and removable liners that can be worn separately. Burton, Marmot, and The North Face also have a wide range of women's winter jackets. These are also seriously warm jackets which can also be worn when you're doing winter activities.

If you want a women's winter jacket that's a bit more fashionable you have a lot to choose from. Nordstrom sells a Guess 3/4 length satin coat, a Kenneth Cole Reaction Diamond Quilt Down Bomber, a Nine West Sculpted Puff Nylon Jacket, and a lovely Ellen Tracy Scrunch Collar Iridescent Coat, along with hundreds of others.

If you're looking for a luxe jacket take a look at the Miu Miu Cropped Puffa Jacket. Rock & Republic has what they call the Billy Quilted Leather Jacket as well as a leather zip up jacket. L.A.M.B. has several fashionable jacket offerings of leather and Melton lambswool. Juicy Couture has a Their own double breasted Puffer Jacket. Certainly these luxe women's winter jackets aren't for everybody. They're costly and extremely trendy, not what everybody is looking for.

I always look for classic fashions when I shop, especially for something like a winter jacket that I'm going to have for years. I want to be able to get a lot of wear out of it. Another thing to consider when you're buying a women's winter jacket is the fit. Consider what type of clothing you wear during the winter. Do you wear bulky sweaters or lots of layers? You're going to want to make sure any women's winter jacket you buy will be large enough to comfortably fit the clothing underneath.
