As the cold weather starts to bite it's easy to choose comfort over style and lose track of the season's trends. With fur-lined parkas, cosy knitted sweaters and chic rollnecks a-plenty, Vogue.fr have all the solutions to your winter wardrobe woes as we round up some of the hottest Fall fashions for 2014.

Starting with a classic, worn buttoned-up to the neck, open over a plain t-shirt or tied around the waist, the checked shirt is a versatile wardrobe essential. Resonate grunge vibes in deep red plaid or keep it chic and simple in black and white checks. Layer with a chunky knitted sweater for cosy winter evenings without compromising your style credentials.
After we saw khaki return to the runway for Spring/Summer 2015, taking centre stage with sexy military-inspired silhouettes at Marc Jacobs and transporting us to an Out of Africa safari at Ralph Lauren, the parka is making a comeback this Fall. Fur-lined and fully waterproofed, it's the essential statement jacket to battle the elements and take you through to Spring in style.
If parkas aren't your thing, minimalist, oversized coats are also taking the spotlight this season, as we mirror the men and turn in on the tomboy trend. Opting for three-quarter length pieces and toying with volumes, pair with a chic roll-neck and an ultra-slim gold watch for extra style points and a touch of glamour.
As the festive season fast approaches, you can't go far wrong with a statement red lip. This year, however, the beauty brands are redefining our perceptions of cosmetics with a new generation of lip lacquers, boasting all the color of a lipstick, softness of a balm and an ultra-glossy shine. To finish, think Roy Lichtenstein meets comic-book couture and tie your look together with a playful cartoon clutch bag, taking you seamlessly from day to night as the party season hits full swing.
