    This is my favorite jacket of ALL time (I'm not kidding) and people are always asking me where I got it! Made of sherpa fabric, this cropped puffer coat is a must have this winter season. I've been wearing it every single day since the temperature dropped. It's so cozy that I don't have to wear layers under it and I won't feel the cold winter air through it. But the best part about this coat is the warm oversized collar! I don't even have to wear a scarf with it — and I'm a scarf person. This coat is the true definition of style and warmth — and it's totally worth the price!

    Get it from Abercrombie & Fitch for $140 (available in sizes S–XL).

    2. A men's The Northface 1990 Mountain jacket with a snazzy retro design that can withstand even the harshest of temperatures for years and years to come.


    Promising review: "I have been wearing these jackets since the '90s. The craftsmanship on the new model is just as great as the originals. Comfortable and stylish meet in these mountain jackets and I will continue to wear them as long as The North Face produces them!" —Kel

    3. A plus-size down coat featuring quilted panels to become the beloved winter jacket you'll never want to stop wearing.


    Promising review: "Love this coat! It's warm, comfortable, and looks expensive. I was lucky enough to get it on sale, but honestly, it is worth the full price. It's a teeny bit roomy, but it doesn't look sloppy. All in all, an excellent coat. I've worn it out a few times and have received compliments from strangers when wearing it." —JaNiece Rush

    5. A plus-size Columbia Snow Eclipse jacket with amazing quality to last you season through season.


    Promising review: "This coat is pricey but it will last a long time. It's a great jacket and it's very warm. Also, it's water-resistant. It has a slightly fitted shape in the waist and covers my butt very well. It doesn't suffocate my arms/shoulders as most coats do and I am very comfortable wearing this." —S. M.

    Promising review: "Everything about this jacket is GREAT. Its quality, color, fit, why even the zipper is heavy duty. It's so soft and warm and not a bit heavy. I never thought I'd wish for cold weather so I could wear (show off) a jacket. But that's what I'm wishing for this winter. And, even though it's not inexpensive, it's well worth the price." —daffox

    Promising review: "I finally gave up trying the 'puff jackets' from the various manufacturers (which were all flimsy and way too small) and purchased this jacket. It's way warmer, better made, thicker insulation, and still light as a feather. Well worth the extra money." —C. H. Lopez
