10 Oversize Wool Coats That Will Keep You Warm While Looking Cool
There is something so chic about an oversize wool coat. Maybe it's the relaxed-but-put-together look. Maybe it's how it flatters every body. Maybe it's that you can't see your pajamas underneath. (We're kidding . . . sort of.) But having a big wool coat does more than just keep you warm in the colder months. It adds instant style to whatever you're wearing, whether you are indeed wearing loungewear or you're sporting a cute cocktail dress and pumps for a holiday party.
Ahead, you'll find a selection of our favorite coats, from billowing open styles to cinched-at-the-waist trenches. Some have dramatic collars, and others have a built-in scarf for extra warmth. No matter which you pick, you'll have a statement piece that pulls its weight in style and function this winter and beyond.
Weekday Kia Wool Brushed Long Coat
We love the versatility of this super-soft brushed wool coat ($129). Wear it open and airy, or cinch the waist with its belt. The large side pockets are, of course, a huge plus, and the notch lapels give it a professional, polished look. Pop it on with a pair of trousers, a blouse, and loafers, and you have your fall workday uniform set and ready to go.
Collusion Unisex Longline Faux Wool Spliced Check Coat
This spliced-check coat ($87) has a decidedly retro feel. But that doesn't mean it's old-fashioned. With a long line, notch collar, and belted waist, it's a unisex style you, your friends, and even your partner can share. Though with neutral colors that'll match just about any outfit, you may have to create a schedule, since you'll be fighting over who gets to wear it each day.
Harris Wharf London Pressed Wool Blanket Coat
With dramatic draped shawl lapels, this wool coat ($700) is as elegant as it is cozy. You'll feel regal and polished as you wrap it around you with the matching belt, whether you're heading to the office, the theater, or anywhere in between. We love the moss-green color, a versatile neutral you don't find often. And in case you were worried, it does indeed have pockets.
ASOS Design Smart Wool Mix Brushed Coat in Soft Green
Dress like spring in the depths of winter with this delightfully fresh green coat ($142). Despite the oversize fit, it's still flattering thanks to lapels that frame the face and shoulders. We love the cuff sleeves, too: keep them rolled to expose just a little of whatever chunky sweater you have underneath.
Toteme Double-Scarf Wool Jacket
Made from wool doublé (that's been certified by the Responsible Wool Standard), this stunning jacket ($1,020) is irresistibly soft and warm. The relaxed silhouette features wide sleeves, large front pockets, and an attached scarf that pulls its weight both in function and style. It's both minimalist and special, a coat that'll turn heads no matter where you wear it.
ASOS Edition Longline Wool Mix Coat
Stand out from the crowd with this sensationally vibrant wool coat ($270). Perfect for fall, this orange-red color will work with any outfit, whether it's a pair of jeans and clogs or a sweater dress. And even if you're sporting activewear from your workout, pop on this coat and you'll immediately look put together for whatever you've got planned.
& Other Stories Wool Blend Trench Coat
It doesn't get much more classic than this wool trench ($322). It'll be a staple piece for your fall wardrobe, delivering polish to your everyday jeans and added warmth to that work-ready sheath dress. Plus, it's easy to dress up for a fancy occasion. Just add a scarf and some heels, and you'll be ready to party.
Johnny Was Omari Embroidered Wool Coat
While many trenches are simple in nature, we can't get enough of this fully embellished wool coat ($715), which features beautiful floral embroidery and a bit of fringe at the hem. If that weren't enough, there's also a handsome green border along the shawl lapels and cuff. It's a statement piece you'll wear again and again, a cool classic that'll never go out of style.
Stradivarius Double Breasted Wool Coat
This Stradivarius jacket ($90) brings together the best of the classic trench and a double-breasted blazer. Wear it over a blouse, a tee, or a sweater for a streamlined look perfect for work or play. Pair it with a cute beanie (as pictured) and you'll be nice and warm, but not overheated, on the brisk days ahead.
Jonathan Simkhai Standard Henriette Fringe Buffalo Plaid Coat
If you aren't sure what to wear over your faux-leather mini or your new boyfriend jeans, look no further. This super-soft plaid coat ($495) will complement them all. Accented with a matching belt and fringe along the shawl collar, it's a stylish wardrobe piece you'll want to wear every time there's a chill in the air.
