As we gear up for the chilly season, I’m starting to pull out my essential cold-weather apparel items and accessories. At the top of the list are, of course, my coats. Living in a place like Minnesota, I like to keep a variety of coats on hand to keep me cozy in different temperatures and for different occasions.
Now that the fall season is officially upon us, I wanted to put together a roundup of my favorite coats available right now, broken out into five categories. I hope you find something you love in the list below!
I don’t think this kind of coat will ever go out of style. Get a good wrap coat and wear it forever.
It’s chic to be comfortable when the temps drop. Take inspiration from great après-ski style photos online and get a puffer coat that will serve you well on a functional level and make you feel stylish.
This is a classic pattern that can be dressed up or thrown over a matching set of sweats. It looks great no matter what.
7. Everlane The Gathered Drape Trench Coat $218
8. Lauren Ralph Lauren via Nordstrom Houndstooth Check Coat $260
9. Avec Les Filles Houndstooth Plaid Peacoat $199, currently on sale for $139
If you want to build a classic outerwear wardrobe, a trench coat is a must. I even wear mine to school drop-off with my PJs underneath and no one is the wiser.
This is the little black dress of coats but better. Look for a rich, true blue navy—one that has a lot of indigo. There’s nothing quite like a well-tailored navy coat in my opinion.
