Shop the Season's Best Winter Coats, From Puffers to a Classic Trench
Fashion-lovers know that come winter, their coat is the statement-making piece of their outfits. You could be wearing couture or pajamas, but the coat speaks first, and it's important to get it right. When the temperature dips, you want to have a few styles at the ready, and these are the 13 winter coats we like this year. Let's face it, it's almost inevitable that the coats you fall in love with will be sold out when you really need them, and the only true antidote to this dilemma is to be prepared and shop now, because like it or not, winter is practically here. It is actually the perfect time to shop the winter coats you've been coveting all season long.
So, what exactly are the styles we'll be wearing this year? Right now, we're into classic trench coats, cozy teddy coats and wool coats, a little fringe moment, and ultrawarm puffer coats for when it really gets cold and you need to pack on the layers. We found great options from luxury brands like Moncler, as well as more affordable coats from Free People and Amazon. When it comes to coat colors, we gravitate toward neutrals because they're so easy to pair with a variety of outfits, but we're the first to admit that sometimes something bright or eye-catching is fun. And that's why there's something here for everyone. From long coats to short, cropped styles, start the new year with your best coat forward.

Best Sophisticated Robe Coat
Tahari Women's Maxi Double Face Wool Blend Wrap Coat ($129, originally $149)
If you've been looking for a sleek robe coat, you need this long Tahari jacket. It boasts a fitted silhouette and has an effortlessly cool double-layered collar and removable belt. What's more, it comes in a total of seven different shades, each of which establish a slightly different aesthetic, depending on what you're going for.
Best Classic Coat
Uniqlo Double Face Long Coat ($130, originally $150)
When you want a coat you can just throw on and run out the door, reach for this Uniqlo long coat. It also comes in natural and black, but the classic beige is always a winner. We love the relaxed fit and chic, single button closure.
Best Cozy Peacoat
We The Free Surplus Future Parka ($130, originally $198)
Parka jackets can feel both preppy and classic. This slouchy coat is a slight twist on the timeless shape, with an adjustable tie around the waist. It gives the iconic shape a little edge and a little extra warmth.
Best Wool-Blend Coat
Bernardo Belted Wool Blend Longline Coat ($160, originally $240)
A stylish peacoat can instantly elevate your look, even if you're wearing sweats. This one from Bernardo is a flattering option with a tie belt that delivers that cinched in look. This longline coat is made from a wool blend that will keep you warm as the temperatures drop. Plus, it's available in several staple colors.
Best Cropped Puffer Jacket
This faux-leather puffer will keep you warm and dry this season, and of course stylish. It's made of smooth, buttery-soft faux leather and is water-resistant, so you can bear the elements without compromising on the look. Three colors are currently discounted: two shades of brown, and black, but be quick, these are already selling out.
Best Trench Raincoat
Long gone are the days of clunky, unflattering, and downright eye-catching (though not necessarily in a good way) raincoats. With this tie belt waistcoat, you can withstand the season's storms in style — and keep your outfit from getting soaked. This trench raincoat style is so polished, you'll be reaching for it when commuting to work, heading out for date night, and more.
Best Teddy Coat
UGG Gertrude Long Teddy Coat ($268)
Looking for something impossibly cozy and luxe? UGG has just the thing for you. The brand's Gertrude coat is comfortable, easy to style, and oh-so warm. It also comes in regular and extended sizing and looks great with any pair of waterproof boots in your wardrobe.
Best North Face Jacket
When the wind picks up, you'll want to reach for a long puffer, but you could get away with a cute, cropped style on moderate days. This two-tone coat from The North Face is a classic, and one you won't regret owning. Wear it from the gym to your favorite restaurant. Plus, you can actually store and pack the jacket in its own pocket.
Best Faux Fur Coat
When you want to bundle up, few things will keep you warmer than faux fur. This jacket is a great choice because it's so easy to throw on, but looks very put together and elegant. It also comes in black and chocolate, but we love the medium brown shade.
Best Black Coat
A classic black coat is a wardrobe essential, and this Zara coat is at the top of our list. It goes with everything, and is one of those coats you'll reach for constantly. It looks great with jeans and a sweater, or even a cocktail dress for a night out.
Best Shearling Coat
When you want to feel warm and look pulled together, reach for a shearling coat. This coat is the one we're coveting right now. We like the tan piping throughout the front and back — it makes the classic coat look a little more elevated and equestrian. Pair this with jeans and a sweater for an effortlessly stylish look.
Best Leather Coat
Leather coats are popping up everywhere right now, and there are so many great silhouettes to choose from outside of the traditional black trench silhouette. If you're looking for a longer style with unique detailing, go with this teal vegan leather coat. It's got a vintage look that we love, and comes with a convenient tie-waist belt.
Best Camel Coat
Anine Bing Dylan Coatt ($800)
If you're looking for a timeless coat and you don't mind splurging, you'll be thrilled with this Anine Bing coat. It has a removable waist belt, so you can tie it up or leave it open — whichever you prefer. It's made of a wool and cashmere blend, so it's super soft and comfortable.
Best Moncler Puffer Coat
When we think of luxurious winter puffer coats, we think of Moncler. If you're looking to treat yourself to something major, this Moncler puffer coat is a great option. We love that it doesn't feel too bulky, but still doesn't compromise on warmth. It comes in black and white, and is made of water-resistant lacquered nylon, which we love.
