    1. A hooded parka with a faux fur hood you can throw over your head when you forget your hat again and it starts to snow out of nowhere.,

    Promising review: "I love love love this jacket! The hood is big enough for my whole head, and the fur lining keeps me extra toasty. I have never owned such a perfect jacket. I would recommend this to anyone that suffers in the horrible miserable cold of winter. I am cold all the time, but this keeps me blissfully warm like I'm being hugged by that creepy Downey bear after he just got out of the dryer. If you love yourself, you will buy this jacket because you deserve it!" —cierra richards

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in sizes 6-14 and in six colors).

    2. A floral puffer so you can really ~bloom~ in a crowd full of black jackets.


    Promising review: "This puffer has a lovely print that is unique, but it is the softness and warmth that closed the deal for me. The earthy tones with bright pink make it fun and yet elegant, especially if paired with earthy tones. I cannot wait for the cold to come. It has lots of room to layer but is still flattering in spite of it." —elevatestyle

    Get it from Anthropologie for $198 (available in sizes XS-XL and in petite).

    3. A double-breasted peacoat to add some flair to your winter wardrobe and make you feel perfectly polished.,

    Promising review: "I love love love this coat! It's so cute! I bought it to wear for my winter holidays in Germany and paired with a sweater or long sleeve shirt, and it kept me super warm. It even has pockets, but they're kinda tough to find. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with this purchase." —Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $86.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors).

    4. A high-collar puffer to keep you as warm and toasty as you feel when you wake up in the morning and don't want to get out of bed.


    Get it from Roman's for $99.99 (available in sizes 14-36).

    5. A coat made with 50% wool so it will actually keep you warm and stylish.


    Promising review: "This jacket is beautiful—the color is great, the fit is great. Most importantly, this jacket is warm. I live in the Midwest, so cute jackets are fine, but I need something that’s going to stand up to a Midwestern winter, and this one does. I’m 5’6 and 160lbs, and I ordered a large. I could have gotten a medium, but the large gives me room for thicker sweaters. 10/10 would order again." —Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99 (available in sizes XS-3X and in tan, black, and red).

    6. A down jacket with more than 4,000 five-star reviews and (unofficially) referred to as "The Amazon Jacket" – so you know it has to be good.,

    Promising review: "THE COAT is the most comfortable coat I’ve ever owned! It’s very warm but not super heavy. I was surprised by how light the coat felt and how warm it kept me. I also love how long it is! The hood is attached and lined with the softest and comfy Sherpa type material. There are several pockets with zippers to keep a beanie, my phone and whatever else I need so I don’t have to carry a purse. I’m 5’7” 120lbs and ordered both Small and XS, and both fit me but I ended up keeping the small because I like my coats to have a little room to layer underneath and my sleeves to be longer. This is the best coat I've ever owned!" —Toni Wheaton

    Get it from Amazon for $107.09+ (available in sizes XXS-5X and in six colors).

    7. A funnel neck coat perfect for when you walk around your city sipping hot chocolate and seeing all the beautiful lights.

    Get it from Loft for $198 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in petite).

    8. A lightweight down jacket – it's great for traveling (when you need something to protect you, but not weigh you down as you go)., Amazon

    Promising review: "This jacket is probably one of my favorite jackets I own! I spent a while looking for a down puffy jacket but didn’t want to spend the money on a brand name. I’m so glad I came across this one! It has traveled with me through spring in Japan and winter in New Zealand. Not only did it keep my really warm, but it has also stayed in great shape after 6 months of international travel! There’s not any wear or tear, and it still looks and fits great! It is definitely not waterproof, but I wasn’t expecting that because it is down insulated. Definitely an amazing jacket! It doesn’t look too bulky if I’m just wearing it over a t-shirt, but it can comfortably be worn over a sweatshirt! Very versatile!!" —Audrey Pardini

    Get it from Amazon for $59.97 (available in sizes XS-3X and in nine colors).

    Promising review: "This jacket is amazing. I am so pleased with how warm it kept me because the material is so light weight. The adjustable pull ties on the inside of the coat were a great addition and help make this coat flatter my hourglass shape. Rachel and team nailed this one!" — LuluZG

    Get it from Nordstrom for $169 (available in sizes XXS-XL).

    12. A plaid coat nice enough to wear to work, no matter what the dress code is., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this coat! It is what I was hoping for and came much sooner than expected. It won’t be my go-to on super cold snowy days, but it is a great and fashionable coat for fall and —Kat Moser

    Get it from Amazon for $52.99 (available in sizes S-XL).

    13. A reversible puffer you can wear with the orange side out when you want to stand out in the crowd, or with the white side out when you're not feeling up to that much attention.

    Free People

    Promising review: "Bottom line, this thing is WARM. I live in Wyoming where it's freezing and windy all the time. I was expecting this jacket to be just that, a jacket. But it seriously kept the wind out and kept me very toasty when I was outside unexpectedly for an extended period of time. I VERY pleasantly surprised. I may have to buy in a second color. It does runs a tad bit large." —ColdCait

    14. A Columbia Mighty Lite jacket designed with omni-heat technology that reflects your own body heat to keep you warm without adding any bulk.


    Promising review: "This is the perfect winter coat! It is lightweight, but thanks to the Omni-heat, you are toasty warm. I live in Chicago, and it keeps the wind out and the heat in. It fits perfectly—I am a 16, and the 1X was perfect with room to wear a sweater underneath. The coat feels amazing—the outer layer is smooth and the added finger "covers" are a nice bonus." —Patience Bertana

    Get it from Amazon for $140 (available in sizes XS-3X and in 23 styles).

    15. An asymmetrical wrap coat with a closing on the shoulder to create an absolutely beautiful drape.

    Promising review: "I'm a true Southern California girl and needed a (vegan) snow jacket for a trip to Milwaukee during February snow. This jacket was perfect for my trip! It was super warm, perfect for layering, and the hoodie kept the drizzling rain out of my face. I received a ton of compliments on how it looked too. I couldn't be happier! I ordered a size small and was a little worried it swallowed me up a bit but when you're in snowy type weather, it was just right." —Christine

    Get it from Amazon for $119 (available in XS-XL and in five colors).

    17. A Montgomery toggle coat worth the investment because it is handmade in England with 70% wool, so you know it's a quality coat.


    Promising review: "It's been a few months now and this coat has definitely done its job! It's kept me warm during these last few days of the Polar Vortex 2019 in Illinois! I don't feel any cold outside except on my legs and my face! It seems well-made and strong. I plan to wear this coat every winter for the rest of my life." —Phil

    Get it from Amazon for $349 (available in sizes 6-22 and in seven colors).

    18. A long teddy bear jacket because you really don't have to sacrifice your style just to stay warm in the winter. This jacket does both.,

    Promising review: "This coat is ADORABLE!!!! I am in love with the material and warmth of this coat. Layering in the winter is hard sometimes on the fashion spectrum, but this jacket made it so much easier. The lining inside the jacket is silky and is so nice on the skin. This will keep you warm and the length is perfect. It fits just right with a pretty intense fluffy feel to it." —Colie

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in six colors).

    Get it from Banana Republic for $249 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in five colors).

    20. A shawl collar coat you can put on in a ~cinch~ when you're running out the door because it totally took you way longer to get ready than you thought it would.,

    Get it from Amazon for $88 (available in sizes XXS-3X and in seven styles).

    21. A parka made with 55 plastic bottles so you can feel a little better about your part in helping the environment. Little things can make a big difference.


    Promising review: "Let me start by saying the least favorite clothing item I like to purchase is a coat.....when I need to, I’m generally a black or dark olive kind of person. This jacket/coat is not only a well made, great pockets, and has warm insulation for a winter parka. The color is awesome, exactly as photographed. The size scale was accurate to the inch. I would normally be a large, but I followed their size scale and ordered the medium. It fits perfectly. I love how the hood falls on the back (also how it fits). It’s the most exciting winter item I bought this year." —KAMS

    Get it from Everlane for $198 (available in sizes XXS-XL and in blue, black, and brown).

    22. A puffer jacket that can take you to the top of the mountain—or just to the grocery store on Sunday, which is its own type of mountain.,

    Promising review: "I contemplated getting this jacket for quite some time, as I live in Wisconsin and haven't had a reliable winter jacket for a few years. I don't regret this purchase AT ALL—in fact, I'm obsessed with this jacket. I am 5'10", 190 pounds and bought an XL. It covers my butt and fits nicely in all the right places to give you an "hourglass" shape. It is made of excellent material, the fur on the hood is awesome (and removable) and SUPER warm. I will most likely purchase this jacket in the olive green, as well." —Page

    Get it from Amazon for $104.99 (available in sizes XXS-3X and in 11 colors).

    23. A floral number – everyone who sees it will be dying to know where you got it from.


    Promising review: "The coat was exactly what I was looking for. It fits well. It’s beautiful to wear when it’s cold. I’m so excited to wear it." —Shannon

    Get it from Target for $69.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in X-4X).

    24. A double-breasted peacoat in such a classic look, you'll for sure be wearing it for years and years and years.


    Promising review: "This coat fit as expected. It's very roomy in the sleeves, which I like. The coat is warm but it not heavy. I love this because walking around with a coat that weighs 20lbs is awful. I live in an area where the temperature is 0-30, and this coat keeps me warm. The neckline is low and does not button, but with a great scarf, it plenty warm. It looks great for dress or casual. The coat was very wrinkled on arrival, but I threw it in the dryer for 2 minutes, and it's great. I'm happy with my purchase."—sharon collins

    Get it from Amazon for $42.49 (available in sizes S-XXL and in six styles).

    25. A wool peacoat with a belt that makes for a truly stunning silhouette.,

    Promising review: "I just received my jacket today. I brought the XL to have room to fit a sweater underneath, and it fits very well! I'm 5'7" and about 190 pounds (curvy), and I just love it! I also love the belt that wraps around, which gives it a cute look! They are cut a size smaller, so I would say go up one size to have adequate room for bigger-breasted women or just to have space to wear a sweater underneath. But overall, it's a great coat!" —Diana McCauley

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in 10 colors).

    26. A packable puffer that really and truly fits into such a small bag you could totally use as a pillow while traveling. We love a multifunctional product.👏👏👏


    Promising review: "I love this jacket! I was looking for a long down jacket but didn’t want to spend a lot of money, and this is perfect! I am usually between and medium and a large, so I ordered the large, and it fits very well. I love that it has a hood and that it is lightweight but very warm! I am very happy with this purchase!" —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $49.50 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in eight colors).

    27. A three-in-one waterproof ski jacket you can wear as a puffer, just the liner, or both together, so it will take you from the early days of winter to the darkest (and coldest) days and back again., Amazon

    Promising review: "This coat is amazing! The winters here are extremely cold with high winds, and this coat keeps me warm. I don't have to add an extra sweatshirt to compensate (which I always had to do before). It's a little bulky, but it still looks great on. No complaints at all from me." —Jessica Peterson

    Get it from Amazon for $86.97 (available in sizes S-XXL and in 10 colors).

    28. An absolutely gorgeous wool coat that might make you feel like a total princess when you put it on. Kate Middleton would be so proud.

    J Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I LOVE coats. I’m going to Central Europe in December, and it will be FREEZING, but we will also be taking lots of photos. So, I needed something both cute and cozy. This jacket is very comfortable, fits well, and is super cute. I love the gold buttons and zipper, the warmth it provides, and the overall shape of the jacket." —HRHMegan

    Get it from J.Crew Factory $187.50 (available in sizes 00-24 and in white, pink, and yellow).

    29. A wool-blend parka so warm, you'll want to ~park~ yourself in it all winter long., Amazon

    The faux fur lining of the hood is removable.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite coat so far. The material is great, and it is really warm for me. The pockets are a bit small. I think there might be a few stitches in there that is keeping the pockets semi-closed. The color is nice, and I have gotten a few compliments for it already. There is a zipper and then outer buttons that make it easy to close. It fits perfectly (I ordered a small) and still looks fine with extra layers underneath. This is a solid coat for the price, and I will continue wearing it as winter is coming." —Lisa C

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in four colors).

    30. A hooded jacket with a shorter inner zip, perfect for when you get in a car or on public transportation and can't take you coat off...but start to sweat. This way, you can unzip the first zipper and cool down a bit before heading back into the elements.


    Promising review: "This jacket is very warm and looks great. The cut allows you to feel cozy without added bulk. It runs a tad on the small side, so if you are on the fence, I recommend sizing up." —Moirab

    Promising review: "I bought this jacket for a trip to New Hampshire and waited till I tested it out before writing my review. I LOVE IT! One day the high was only 16 degrees and my upper body was very warm, and I only had on a thin sweater underneath. One night the wind was blowing, and the jacket really did a great job of blocking it and keeping me warm. It's very stylish. I highly recommend it." —Jody F

    Get it from Amazon for $104.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in four colors).

    Promising review: "I read a lot of reviews on a lot of different coats before deciding on this one, and I'm so glad this is the one I got! It's very soft and warm, perfect for winter here in Iowa. It looks really nice too. I would order a size up as it is just a little snug. The only thing I don't like is the zipper seems a little cheap and kind of flimsy. Hope it holds up. Overall a very nice, warm coat." —Angelbehrends

    Get it from Amazon for $35.90 (available in sizes XS-2X and in 10 colors).

    36. An Eddie Bauer parka with a removable hood because it's always great to have options depending on how you're feeling.

    Eddie Bauer

    Promising review: "I did a lot of reading before purchasing this coat. I wanted a warm, comfortable, nice looking coat with a hood. I even read up on how coats are rated for warmth, which is one of the reasons I chose this coat. I love how the sleeves form fit at the wrists and that the coat zips up so high up the neck....all features to help ensure I stay warmer! I chose a large size based on what I read from other comments, even though I usually wear a medium. I have longer arms and broader shoulders, so wanted to be able to wear a heavy sweater under the coat. The size is perfect for me. I saw some complaints about the hood coming off easily and that hasn't been a problem for me. So far, I am extremely happy!" —Pam

    Promising review: "I love this jacket! I bought it for our trip to Antarctica but I am wearing it all the time here in North Carolina. I like the thumb loops to keep the sleeves down, the zip-up pockets, the optional zip-on/-off hood, and the way I can close it up around my neck in the cold wind. It's warm indeed! It was PERFECT for my trip to Antarctica. I was never cold and it protected from the wind, too!" —Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $78.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in 15 colors).

    39. A Cookie Pie Coat so cute, it just might get you ~snow showered~ with compliments by your friends and maybe even random strangers.
