Puffer jackets, cardigans and coats: The outerwear you'll want to live in this winter.

Yep, we've officially reached that point in the year where it's time to start layering up.

While it's still autumn, the temperature is dropping and daylight savings is over, forcing up to consider a jumper or jacket whenever we leave the house.

Need some office outfit inspo? Here's what the Mamamia team is wearing. Post continues after video.

Outerwear makes an autumn/winter outfit - it's the statement piece people see first, and the all-important item that keeps you cosy.

Instead of aimlessly scrolling through the never-ending variety of options available this year, we've curated our 2022 outerwear edit. So no matter what you're looking for, we've got you sorted.

Now you just have to pick which one you'll be wearing...

Trench coats.

The humble trench coat has been a cold weather staple for years now, and in 2022 it's seriously on-trend. 

You can't go wrong with a classic neutral trench, but there are also many other fun colours to pick from.

Shackets. 

Thicker than your average shirt but thinner than your winter coat, a shacket is the perfect outer layer before it gets seriously cold. 

They come in a range of materials like denim, wool, corduroy and canvas, and a variety of colours and checkered prints. But these are our top faves.
