Now that winter seems to be in full swing, I thought it would be prime time to showcase one of my favorite collections from this season: Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012 RTW.

This collection features layered looks that are not only fantastic for cold weather, but also incorporate a lot of different trends, such as menswear- and military-inspired pieces and a whole lot of peplum. And you know those animal graphic tops that have been so trendy this fall? Yep, you can thank Burberry for their rise in popularity.

If you want to snag that stylish winter look for just a fraction of the price, simply scroll on down to check out three looks inspired by Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012:

1. Modern Vintage

As mentioned above, peplum was prevalent at Burberry's Fall 2012 show, and this look exemplifies how to wear the silhouette during the colder months of the year. Pairing a polished jacket with an oversized belt and striped skirt creates a vintage-inspired vibe with plenty of trendy touches.

To get this look, start with a mid-length blue and gold striped skirt. Layer a top of your choice underneath a peplum jacket, then add a neutral-colored bow belt. Sweater tights keep the look cozy, while wedge ankle booties are both stylish and comfortable. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a pair of sleek sunglasses and a ladylike scalloped handbag.

2. Graphics & Knits

Recreate the above look by pairing an owl-adorned tee with a brown pencil skirt. Add a comfy oversized knit sweater, as well as the gray tights from the first look. Wedged lace-up boots add a rugged vibe, while a bow-shaped belt adds interest. Grab a quilted bag and a pair of faux-leather gloves to complete this look.

3. Utilitarian Chic
