With the record-breaking temps most of the country has been experiencing as of late, it wouldn't be shocking if you haven't thought much about wearing — let alone buying — a winter coat just yet. Most days here in New York City, it's hardly been chilly enough to wear more than a jean jacket.
Still, as the saying goes, winter is coming. And, if you live north of the Mason Dixon, you can count on it coming soon and lasting at least through March. That's admittedly a bit depressing, sure, but only if you don't keep in mind another equally true (though perhaps less-known) saying: "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes."
With that in mind, we combed eight of the season's most wearable winter coat trends to bring you 62 super-cute options at every price. With styles ranging from puffers to patchwork, there's bound to be at least a few in which you wouldn't mind bundling up. Who knows? You may find one you like so much you suddenly start wishing winter would come sooner — and even last a tad longer.
This season, the ubiquitous down-filled jackets come in everything from velvet to satin to wool.
High-contrast colorblock lends brightness to classic silhouettes like peacoats and A-line wool trenches.
Look for double-breasted, structured shapes adorned with metal buttons, epaulets, badges and other high-ranking details.
Shearling collars and shorn-wool trim lend added warmth to these outdoorsy styles.
These wear-with-anything options are a sophisticated alternative to your go-to black coat. Oversize silhouettes and built-in details like double collars, belts and pocket flaps add interest to this otherwise minimalist trend.
Cozy up to chubby faux fur coats in muted neutrals, rich jewel tones or multi-colored patterns.
