Because it’s cold outside, we are pulling on our favorite feminine jackets, coats and dresses. Styles with asymmetric lines, muted colours and florals are just right from this collection in the 11/2017 issue of BurdaStyle magazine.


At first glance, this top is quite pure and is a great background for the youthful print. A second check shows the exceptional dart detailing at the bustline and in the sleeves.


This dress has a two-piece look. A stretch velvet top follows the figure and the asymmetric skirt panels are a faux wrap style. The draping twill and the body hugging cut with a fun flounce come together to beautifully accent the waistline.


A particularly flattering design that has a knotted accent and a slight waterfall cascade at the neckline. The extra-long and narrow sleeves, as well as a slight flare at the front and back hems, add shape beautifully.


A must-have for your blouse collection! Rather than a button placket, the surprise is in the collarless style with the blouson feel that comes from the overlapping bodice design. Cuffed sleeves and a back yoke are a nod to classic blouse details.


This pencil skirt shapes and adds dramatic super sexy curves. The asymmetric pleats and the velvet fabric create a stunning light effect.


This skirt has a clean silhouette that gets a dash of the unexpected. The diagonal seam panels on the front of the skirt get a magnified hand-stitch finish detail. A narrow band ensures that it sits perfectly at the waistline.


Whether you have a Sunday brunch with friends or are headed to the office, this dress is simply a great choice every time! The secret? The exaggerated flounce that starts from the side seam and is fastened in place at the neckline and waist. The narrow skirt design with the seam pockets gets extra comfort from the waistline pleats. Fashion tip: For a classic look, sew this in a solid color – or have the flounce be a bold contrast accent.


The details really make this style stand out. This fitted jacket features flap pockets and notably narrow sleeves. The diagonal front closure can either drape open or wrap for a lapel look. Wear it relaxed with a coarse knit top, or pair it with a sheath dress or a blouse and slacks for elegance.


If you have thought that parkas are simply too masculine for you, then check out this floral jacquard version to win you over. Storm flaps and front flaps for the pockets are decorated with a sassy ruffled trim – and a wide twill trim draws in the middle through a waistband casing. A practical extra: The sleeve hem width can be adjusted with a tab to ensure that the wind stays out. The side seams are adjustable thanks to sewn-in metal zippers.


Could this be the coziest addition to your autumn wardrobe? We think yes: A statement coat sewn with an ombré wool fleece! The oversized lapels, cut-on hood that protects from the chilly wind and patch pockets to plunge your hands deep into for lots of warmth. To keep all of that comfort close to the body, the tying belt draws it beautifully in at the waist.

    I love almost all the coats ive ever seen Burda come out with…. but i live in Central Queensland Australia where even winter is not really so cold except some nights…. and it’s Summer now so coat look so hot. I can dream of weather that needs all the awesome coats and maybe make a light weight version of one or water proof one for wet weather.
