    1. A wool blend peacoat that looks just as stylish layered over a casual hoodie as it does with a fancier look. Everyone needs a peacoat in their closet so here's your chance.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this jacket. I was looking for a jacket that fell right at the mid calf and this was it. It has a silky inner liner and the collar will stand. It looks professional and MUCH more expensive than it actually is!!!!! I get compliments all the time." —Ruth L.

    Get it from Amazon for $55.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 12 colors/patterns).

    2. A Columbia jacket made with patented heat-reflective technology to manage body heat level protection against cold winds. It is also moisture-resistant in case you get caught in the rain (which happens more than we'd probs like to admit).

    Promising review: "This coat is wonderful! The length has been so nice. It unzips from the bottom if you need more space to move your legs, but I never need to use that feature. It is sooo lightweight, and is not bulky. It is kind of nice to wear a winter coat and not feel like a walking marshmallow for once." —F. L. Pettet

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and 11 colors).

    3. A shawl collar coat with a waist belt for a cinched-in look that's toasty, structured, and means business.


    Promising review: "This coat looks great, fits right and meets/exceeds our expectations. An especially good choice and at a good price." —SA Long

    Get it from Amazon for $61.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and nine colors).

    4. A long hooded rain coat so you can grab your boots and umbrella and go singin' in the rain in style.

    Promising review: "I had been looking for a professional-looking rain jacket, well this is definitely the one. Not only does it look good it is very warm. I have had many rain jackets that did not keep me warm on those cold rainy days, well not this, this jacket keeps you very warm. The outer lining is very soft to the touch and not like your crinkly feeling jackets." —Kymberlee Piela

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in sizes S–XXL, and seven colors).

    5. A faux shearling moto jacket so you can have the best of both worlds — a sleek and simple coat style ~AND~ faux fur accents.,

    Promising review: "So, I never really write reviews for products however, this is actually the best jacket I’ve ever owned. I am a huge jacket fan, and this jacket is so warm and cozy, and the fur is very thick. I often choose to wear this over my Canada goose. The jacket is oversized and looks very expensive (someone asked me if I spent over $200 on it). If you are going to buy anything, BUY THIS JACKET." —Erika

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in sizes S–XL and three colors).

    6. A wool sweater coat that's not at heavy as a down coat but will keep you just as warm (and trendy).


    Get it from Anthropologie for $198 (available in XS—XL regular or petite, and 1X-3X). 

    7. An Everybody & Everyone puffer coat made from 100% recycled materials. Each coat uses 330 recycled plastic water bottles so while you're keeping warm, you're also helping the planet. A win-win.

    Reviewers suggest that this runs large so you may want to size down for a snugger fit or stick with your normal size for a roomier, cozy fit.

    Promising review: "This jacket perfectly met my expectations! It fits well with a bit of room to breathe/layer without being too baggy. The zipper zips up to the chin and along with the hood forms a nice shell around your head when needed. The jacket is very light but will keep you quite warm. There are 2 external zipped pockets and 2 large open internal pockets, which I love!" —Mandi

    Get it from Amazon for $45+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 14 colors).

    Promising review: "I'm very happy with this jacket. I also get tons of compliments on it. It's definitely a jacket that needs a sweater or sweatshirt under it if it's cold out. There's not much of a liner to it, but great jacket for the fall." —Connie

    22. A Free People quilted coat you'll probably wonder how you lived this whole time without. It's thick, layer-able, and looks so on trend it's ridiculous.

    Allison Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    This is by far my most beloved coat in my entire closet. The color is super versatile and it feels like I'm wrapped in a comforter when I wear it. It's so comfortable but the quilting makes it feel more stylish even though it feels like you rolled out of bed (in a good way). I will literally protect this coat with my life and pray it makes it until I'm old and grey. This does run on the bigger side!

    Get it from Macy's for $198 (available in sizes XS–L and five colors).

    23. A The North Face insulated hooded jacket that's easily packable so wherever your next adventure takes you, you'll have this to toss on in rain or snow.

    Promising review: "This is an incredible jacket. I was torn between getting a Patagonia jacket (the nano puff) or this jacket. The reason that I went with this jacket is because it had a more tailored fit than the Patagonia jacket. This one fits so perfectly and isn't too long on the arms (which is a big pet peeve of mine). It keeps me so warm on cold nights and I can also wear it as a light jacket. Versatile, cute, warm, and totally awesome! While this is an expensive buy, it is one that I would make again and again. Great quality and I know that it is going to last me a long time. Very happy with the purchase." —Natalie Voorn

    Get it from Amazon for $153.95+ (available in sizes XS–2X, and 15 colors).

    24. A double-breasted peacoat that'll look like you're a polished Parisian about to take a stroll to pick up a baguette from the local bakery. (Oooo oui oui!)

    Promising review: "I ordered and tried on at least a dozen peacoats of this style — this one was the keeper! Others in the same price range were too baggy, too short/long, had limited movement or simply looked cheap. I would recommend it for any body type!" —HappyToBeHere

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL, and 13 colors).

    25. A baggy down jacket if you're on the market for something mid-weight and wind resistant. Since it features a baggier fit, it'll be much easier to style over thicker sweaters and sweatshirts.


    Promising review: "This jacket is warm and soft and fluffy, I am looking forward to wearing it in cold weather." —Ruth Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in sizes XS—L and 10 colors).

    Promising review: "I bought this so I would survive in Colorado for Christmas and I was NOT disappointed!! It is so warm but still feels light and comfy. There are jackets that make you feel big and bulky and this isn’t that at all!! The outside of the jacket is so soft and the inside has that sherpa fabric that is even softer!! The hood is really big which I love! Nice deep pockets! BUY IT!" —Ali Golightly

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in sizes S—3XL and five colors).

    30. A detachable fur collar coat — AKA two coats in one. Wear it with the fur for some extra glam flare, or without the fur collar for a more business casual look.


    Promising review: "This feels like a high quality wool coat that is nicely crafted. It’s got good weight to it too so will withstand cooler temperatures and wind. The faux fur collar is fully detachable, and I found that I liked the look more without it." —Everly
