Now that we've officially entered a deep chill, it means it's officially time to invest in a Winter coat. A good topper is priceless for elevating a look, adding some panache, and, of course, keeping a girl warm. While a classic, black one should be in every woman’s wardrobe, adding a statement piece to your outerwear can instantly liven up winter’s dreary palette. Try plaids and graphic patterns for a trendy take, or pack a punch of color with bright monochrome iterations. To make it easy on you, we've done the work and handpicked our favorite must-have coats:

  1. Zara Coat (Rs. 11990): A perfect mix of girly and masculine in a timeless pattern. Throw it on over everything from your little black dresses at night to wide-leg trousers and silky blouses at work to jeans and tees on the weekends.
  2. Mango Coat (Rs. 8990): A camel coat is as classic and versatile as an outerwear can be. The double breasted buttons and longer length add a touch of sophistication to this military style camel coat . No matter what your layers look like underneath, this topper will make your outfit look entirely pulled together.
  3. Vero Moda Coat (Rs. 6195; Myntra.com): This gorgeous burgundy hue on this coat adds richness to just about any outfit — and can easily go from day to night.

We might have been a little late to the party, but baseball caps have been a street style accessory du jour for quite some time. And we are not talking about just your plain old sporty logo ones, baseball caps have been hit by the glam quotient to make them sleek and fashion forward. Not only are they a refreshing alternative to the fedora and lend an easy sense of tomboy cool, especially to girlier outfits but they are also the best accessory to combat those winter bad hair days.

Try pairing a sleek leather rendition with a floral or printed dress for a fun play on ladylike-meets-sporty, or style a bright baseball cap with boyfriend jeans, a slouched tee, and oxfords for an effortless, off-duty look. Like any good sporty find, these caps always play well with high tops and maybe a varsity jacket too. And since its not yet effing cold around here, we thought better late than never and rounded up few inspiration pics along with a few of our favorite pieces.

If the basic blazer is a working woman's ultimate outerwear staple, then the little leather biker jacket is undoubtedly her off-duty essential. A gorgeous motorcycle jacket is a total game-changer - it instantly gives your look a downtown-cool spin. Good leather jackets are definitely not cheap, but the sheer versatility makes it worth the investment and you'll keep them for years to come. Pair it with a feminine lace dress and ankle boots for a transitional Fall look, with jeans and a tunic for layered perfection, or throw it over the most classic work-appropriate outfit (pencil skirt and crisp button down) for a chic work ensemble .If you don't already have a basic black version, that’s the one you need to grab asap. For those of you who are ready to explore beyond the basics, there are several standout hues that you will seriously love. Here a few of our favorites that are on the market right now:

  1. Zara Moto Jacket (Rs. 5999): A black motorcycle jacket is as good a wardrobe staple as a white button down. This one from Zara featuring a side zip, soft faux-leather, and quilted sleeve details makes it the perfect go-to item. Pair it with a plaid shirt, skinny jeans and ankle booties for a tough chic look.
  2. Aditi Wasan Jacket (Rs. 5999; Jabong.com): Step out of the black box with an unexpected hue like teal blue. It’s more eye-catching and we promise it’s just as versatile. The light blue hue keeps the tone soft and fresh and it would really work great with an edgy dark denim-on-denim look.
  3. Mango Jacket (Rs. 8990): Studs and a vibrant rust hue modernize the classic leather jacket. Pair it with a sexy lace dress and heels for a fierce feminine look or go for a laid-back casual outfit with a balck tee and jeans.
  4. Promod Jacket (Rs. 8950): At once laid-back and incredibly luxe, this jacket in soft buttery leather can pull together any look in an instant. Use it to dress down a crisp shirt and trousers look for office or pair it with a girly skirt and blouse for a soft yet edgy look.
  5. Forever 21 Jacket (Rs. 2640 approx): This blue beauty might not be real leather but its a great faux version and at this price point it will make a great addition to your outwear collection. Create a perfect outfit for kicking around on the weekend by throwing it over casual cuffed pants and sweater and wearing them with low heeled booties.
  6. Elitify Moto Jacket (Rs. 11,990): A bold take on the classic silhouette. Take it from daring to sweet depending on your choice of separates. Wear it with neutral solids like black, grey or beige to let the jacket speak for itself.

Designers were looking through rose colored glasses when it came to Fall 2013. Pink swept the Fall 2013 runways to become the undisputed shade of the season. From bubblegum pink at Carven to petal pink at Burberry, the girlish hue dominated the runways and took center stage on everything from ankle-strap heels to polished outerwear. Pink's modern allure is sans preciousness and delicately delivered with a new ladylike purity via modern silhouettes and streamlined details. Keep you pinks in-line and go for a head-to-toe look or mix and match different shades of the posh palette with a neutral basic to ground the ensemble. To keep things from going too girly, choose pieces that are refined and not frou frou, cut the sugar factor with accessories that daunt always play nice. We have shortlisted a few of our favorite pieces in the girly-glam color:

  1. Zara Clutch (Rs. 1390): A pale pink clutch is more understated and works unexpected magic. Take it with a black outfit for maximum impact or use it to punctuate a pretty pink outfit.
  2. Forever 21 Sweater (Rs. 1550): This slouchy pink sweater looks invariably cool and of-the-moment. Tuck it into your pants or throw it over a midi skirt, the options are endless.
  3. Forever 21 Dress: One step above peach, this delicate blush shade is perfect for all neutral wardrobes. Pair ladylike lace with pop art extras like neon pumps and a statement cuff to keep things all grown up and sophisticated.
  4. Forever New Top (2600): If you're looking to get the most out of your revived love for pink, we suggest getting this sweet lace paneled top. It will look great peeking from underneath a jacket or by itself with a darker hued skirt or pants.
  5. Koovs Skirt(Rs.1295): Just because it's bright pink doesn't mean you have to look like a Barbie! Stay away from clichés by balancing the shade with simple, menswear-inspired pieces. Team this skirt with a chunky balck knit and black ankle booties.
  6. Reiss Saffi (2290):These pants hit the sweet spot between girly and bohemian. Team them with an oversized sweater in the same hue or go for a burgundy shade on top.
  7. In case you’re not terribly excited about incorporating the so called girly hue into your wardrobe, a pastel pink lip or a pink scarf will do the trick nicely this fall, especially when wearing basic black and white.
