There's a chill in the air, the days are starting to get shorter, and before you know it, you'll be avoiding slush puddles on the way to work and dreaming of curling up by the fire. However, just because it's getting colder outside doesn't mean you need to pack up your style for the season. We've rounded up the cutest women's winter coats that'll actually make you eager to see those snowflakes start falling. And for more great cold weather fashion, check out these 20 Fall Dresses You'll Want to Wear All Year.
