    Promising review: "According to my teenage daughter, this jacket is very chic. It's lightweight, yet warm, and has a cinch string at the waist for a snug fit, and to keep in warmth, and keep out cold. The jacket has multiple pockets to hold all of your essentials, but unfortunately, no pockets on the inside. The jacket fits true to size, but the sleeves are just a bit long." —BM

    Get it from Amazon for $32 (available in sizes XS–2XL and six styles).

    3. A teddy coat you should treat yourself to as a reward for even realizing you should be wearing a coat. Great job!,

    My best friend and I both picked up this coat last year and have already discussed how excited we are wait to break them out again now that the weather is slowly getting colder. It makes me feel like I'm being enveloped in a warm hug — and who doesn't want that?

    Promising review: "This jacket is so soft and warm, and the big pockets are a plus. Like other reviewers, order a size up so you can comfortably layer under and zip up. I usually wear a small but got a medium and it’s perfect! Super cute, I’ll probably buy another’s in a different color lol." —Brianna

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and 12 styles).

    4. A mid-length puffer coat with cargo pockets to keep your gloves and spare beanie in for cold weather emergencies., Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm about 5'9" and 145 lbs. I have pretty long arms. I got a medium and it fit perfectly. I live in Montana and it's currently in the negatives right now. Even though sometimes I choose to, I don't really even have to wear sleeves/layers underneath this jacket because it's so warm. I highly recommend this. I've had it for several months now. The buttons and the zipper have held up pretty well." —Lori

    Promising review: "SO WARM. So stylish! I am so in love with this coat. It seems very well put together and heavy and sturdy. I am usually a size L/XL in everything and the large fits perfectly with the zippers up on the sides. It gets a bit narrow around the hips but it's adjustable so it's fine! Absolutely love this coat." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in sizes 2XS–5X and 10 styles).

    6. A plaid puffer jacket so you can keep your cool ~lumberjack vibe~ going deep into the winter season when your favorite flannel just won't cut it.


    Promising review: "Needed a jacket for a quick trip somewhere cold and came across this one and purchased without hesitating because of the price. I ordered both a small and medium and couldn’t tell much of a difference between the sizes. The medium might be a little longer with longer sleeves but I ended up going with the small because it looked slightly less puffy. It’s super cute, on trend and warm (also water resistant)." —Cldorsett

    Get it from Target for $20 (available in sizes XS–2XL and six styles).

    7. A waterproof and windproof jacket you'll definitely want in your winter weather line-up if you plan to spend the next few months out on the slopes., Amazon

    Promising review: "I recently went to Iceland and of course in preparation I purchased this coat. It was possibly the best purchase I had made for the entire trip. I was in cold snowy weather and remained at a comfortable warm temperature. On top of that I visited four waterfalls, including one that completely soaked my jacket, yet the water never got through and I remained warm. It was a perfect jacket." —julius

    Get it from Amazon for $79.89+ (available in men's sizes S–3XL and 17 styles).

    8. A denim parka that'll bring new meaning to the phrase "Canadian Tuxedo," letting you dress head-to-toe in your fave fabric without sacrificing any warmth.

    Get it from American Eagle for $64.97 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL).

    9. A splurge-worthy Canada Goose parka you can wear for years and years since it'll stand the test of time.


    Promising review: "I’m in love with this jacket. Providing you with warmth without the bulk. It doesn’t make you look like a marshmallow. My most expensive jacket to date but oh so worth it. Cannot beat the quality. Now I don’t have to buy a jacket every year. By the way, this is meant to be a slim fit. I’m 5’4" and I bought a small. It fits perfectly. Just beautiful." —MJP78

    Get it from Nordstrom for $895 (available in sizes 2XS–L and four colors).

    10. A moto jacket with just a *touch* of faux fur on the collar to bring a bit of glam to a classic coat.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful jacket. The collar is super soft and the burgundy color is so vibrant." —Kraiford

    Get it from Nordstrom Rack for $36.97 (available in sizes XS–XL and three colors).

    11. A Tommy Hilfiger packable down jacket that'll be great for when you're traveling from a warm climate to a cold one and don't want a coat that'll take up your entire suitcase., Amazon

    Promising review: "My hubby travels for work and needs something light but very warm for snowy climates. He got this on a recommendation from another friend who travels as well and he spoke very highly of this jacket. What makes it unique is that it's so toasty without bulk. It can fit into a pouch about the size of a small purse. So it packs well. Then, it’s very chic and hip looking so you can wear it to work functions. My hubby is 6’2", 185 lbs., and normally wears an XL in shirts but chose a L for this jacket to have a more fitted look instead of a ski jacket look. The large is perfect in arm length and fit roomy enough to even wear a fitted V-neck sweater underneath. He loves this thing." —Beauty Maven

    Get it from Amazon for $47.11+ (available in sizes XS–3XL, in standard and big and tall sizes, and 32 styles).

    12. A moto jacket featuring faux fur accents so you can stay nice 'n' toasty without sacrificing the edgy look you've spent years cultivating.,

    Promising review: "I freaking LOVE this jacket! I was initially skeptical about buying it on Amazon, but I'm happy I took this chance because it's seriously awesome. It's durable, thick, and WARM. The perfect fall jacket!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 22 colors).

    13. A trendy mini puffer jacket to keep you warm without cramping your style.

    Abercrombie & Fitch

    Promising review: "This is the perfect puffer jacket! I’ve been looking for a red puffer that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. This thing is light and cozy. I’ve worn it twice and I’m surprised by how warm it has kept me. If you’ve been on the fence about this jacket, you should definitely make the purchase." —Alexa

    Get it from Abercrombie & Fitch for $72 (available in sizes 2XS–XL and four styles).

    14. A down jacket with a fur hood you can pull up over your head to protect your precious lil' ears on windy winter days.,

    Promising review: "I bought this jacket for my last minute trip to NYC and it was perfect. It was warm while walking around all day in 37 degree weather and so cute and comfy. Other reviews said to order up so I got a large and it fit perfectly. I'm 5'7" and 140 lbs." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in sizes 2XS–3X and 13 styles).

    15. A collared plaid coat to keep you warm while still looking as fabulous as ever. The blue-and-black combination work surprisingly well and goes with every colored shoe you own.


    I bought this coat in preparation for the already freezing New York winter. It's a fun mix of colors, has a great shape to it, and isn't itchy — just warm! I also really love the oversized buttons and the overall fit.

    Get it from ModCloth for $149 (available in sizes S–4X and three colors).

    16. A classic The North Face with a removable faux fur trim so you can customize your look based on your mood/the weather. Who doesn't love options?!, Amazon

    Promising review: "First of all, I love The North Face products because they always seem to be well made and this coat is no exception. My husband surprised me with this because I needed a new coat for this winter coming up and I was thrilled with the surprise! The red is a really nice color and I love that it has the fur trimmed hood for extra style. It’s fitted but not tight and it is very nice and warm. The hood is removable which is nice for when it needs to be washed since the fur should not be washed and dried. (I dried a jacket with a fur trimmed hood in the dryer once and the fur came out melted, matted and ruined.) Overall, I am very very happy with this jacket." —Mama JNO

    Get it from Amazon for $137.95+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 18 styles).

    17. A trench coat with a fur lapel and elegant skirt you can wear to a formal holiday party or whenever you want to look like you're starring in a romantic Hallmark Christmas Movie., Amazon

    Promising review: "My favorite coat right now. I grew up in the Midwest and experienced my fair share of winters (22 of them in fact). I am now a full Floridian who cannot deal with the cold. So when my girlfriends and I decided to plan a girls' weekend in NYC at the end of January, I knew I needed a coat that was cute, but more importantly, something that kept me warm. This jacket did both so well! I wore a regular long-sleeve shirt underneath and the coat completely blocked out any cold and wind as we walked around the city. I purchased a few other coats and none of them fit nearly as well as this one did. Needless to say, I am beyond satisfied with this coat and have started planning another visit up north soon just so I can wear it again!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and eight colors).

    18. A coat from L.L. Bean that'll keep you so toasty you won't even think twice before diving into a pile of snow to make a snow angel.

    L.L. Bean

    Promising review: "I was looking for a casual coat with a silky lining, not a fuzzy one. This coat has a great lining so it is easy to put on over a sweater. It also has a zipper AND snaps. The hood is great but can be removed if you want and the fur accent can also be removed to make the coat look a little different. The sleeves have a cozy soft cuff to keep air from coming up the sleeve. The down is just the right amount for keeping you warm in Ohio. All around good coat." —Buckeyetree

    Get it from L.L. Bean for $239 (available in sizes XS–3X, in regular, petite, and plus sizing, and two colors).

    19. A wool blend coat with a grid design and an asymmetrical hemline, so chic you won't even want to take it off when you get to work., Amazon

    Promising review: "Love love love this coat. I got so many compliments. I’m usually a 12 and they suggested a 2XL but after reading the reviews I got a large and it worked perfectly. The arms are not too tight at all. The back is shorter which I love, I hate to take my coat off when driving and this is a perfect hop out of the car and go coat!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $85+ (available in sizes 2XS–3XL and seven styles).

    20. A collared pea coat for fancier occasions or if you just enjoy looking put together on the daily., Amazon

    Promising review: "I got this jacket not too long ago. The moment I put it on I was transported to the year 1919 on an old fishing vessel. With only a tobacco pipe and some jerky in the pockets of my jacket. It's been 100 years now and I have yet to age. Needless to say this jacket is amazing. 10/10 would buy again but maybe in a different color this time." —Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $55.98+ (available in men's sizes XS–2XL and nine styles).

    21. A London Fog parka with a quilted design you'll never tire of — it'll be the perfect accessory to your annual photo with Santa.


    I had my last London Fog coat for over five years before I felt I needed a replacement. It was extremely cozy, warm, and stylish — everything I could want in a winter coat.

    Promising review: "Very nice coat. It checks off a lot of what I want in a winter coat. The zipper and snaps work well. A nice roomy fit. You can sit down in it with it zippered and snapped. Hood is about the right size. Snaps up nice around the neck. I ordered the burgundy and it looks like a nice wine color. London Fog came up with a nice coat." —Julie

    Get it from Macy's for $109 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and four colors).

    22. A chevron faux fur jacket that'll let you express your inner-diva even if you're just on your way to work.

    American Eagle

    Made from super soft faux fur, this stylish coat will keep you warm while also looking fabulous.

    Get it from American Eagle for $69.97 (available in sizes XS–L).

    23. A double-breasted coat with slant pockets and oversized buttons that'll look equally wonderful with jeans, a skirt and tights, or a dress.


    Promising review: "I needed a new coat to wear to work or casual... with jeans, slacks and long skirts. This coat is perfect! I'm 5'8" and 170 lbs, curvy. This coat has a nice shape ...not boxy... is made of very high quality material and just fits like a glove. I absolutely love it and highly recommend this!" —Jeanette

    Get it from Amazon for $42.32+ (available in sizes XS–XL and nine styles).

    24. A boucle funnel neck coat to make you feel like you're still at home wrapped up in your favorite blanket.


    Promising review: "At first, I could not tell what the fabric would be like of the jacket but loved the color so ordered it — it was amazing! The salt and pepper look is amazing with jeans or any color pants, the jacket is a great length and the silk lining inside is comfortable yet the jacket stays warm. This is the perfect staple item!" —Jgoldz

    Get it from Loft for $198 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and regular and petite lengths).

    25. A jacket lined completely with faux fur and an adjustable drawstring waist, so you can eat all you want at your company holiday party without fear of feeling like an overstuffed sausage once you put your coat back on.,

    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).

    26. A reversible faux shearling coat that'll make you feel like you bought two coats for the price of one.

    TJ Maxx

    Get it from TJ Maxx for $22 (available in sizes XS–L).

    27. A belted trench coat you can wear throughout the winter but also use to shock your significant other with one of those sexy surprises you always see in rom-coms ;).


    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 160 lbs., 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 $125.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and three colors).

    28. A gorgeous double-breasted winter white coat that'll have you looking like a queen every time you step out of the house this season.


    Get it from Macy's for $109.99 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and three colors).

    29. A metallic parka you'll definitely be able to find in the usual pile of coats that forms at your friend's gatherings — no standard black coat for you!


    This beauty is made of viscose, polyester, cotton, metallic, polyurethane and has a polyester lining. The hood is a detail you'll be THRILLED to have when it's raining or snowing and the adjustable waist will surely be a game changer.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $298 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    30. An ultra-long puffer that'll keep you warm literally from head to toe, so feel free to make all of those festive outdoor holiday plans you've been hesitant about. See the tree! Check out your neighbor's lights. Go caroling!

    Abercrombie & Fitch

    Promising review: "Cannot beat the color, a gorgeous neutral that goes with everything. Love the side snaps which make getting in and out of the car a snap! Get so many compliments every time I wear it." —Joanna

    Get it from Abercrombie & Fitch for $132 (available in sizes 2XS–XL and six colors).

    31. Or a lightweight, short down coat in case you tend to feel trapped by super long coats. To each their own, amiright?, 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 me really warm, but it has also stayed in great shape after six 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).

    32. A sassy faux fur leopard print coat you'll take one look at and say "wow, I need this in my life right meow."


    Get it from Anthropologie for $298 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    33. A long wool blend coat, so chic it'll make you want to stop everything, book a flight to Paris, and pose for photos in front of the Eiffel Tower to show the world how freakin' fabulous you are.


    Promising review: "This coat is absolutely perfect. It's excellent quality and soft and warm. I'm 5'4" with a busty top and ordered a large. I was so excited when I tried it on and it buttoned all the way to the top without feeling tight or gaping! That's been my biggest struggle; finding a peacoat that would fit my bust. The length is exactly what I wanted too; it is about mid-shin level. The price is unbeatable too. LOVE IT!!" —Candice Guilliams

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and six styles).

    34. Or a lattice long coat that'll make you feel and look like Samantha Parkington — AKA the most stylish of all the American Girl Dolls (seriously, look her up if you don't remember!)., 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 winter." —Kat Moser

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

    35. A beautiful wool coat from J. Crew you can wear to channel your inner–Kate Middleton. No one wears a coat better than she does, IMO.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "The Lady Day Coat is a coat worth every penny! For size reference, I'm 5'8, 145lbs, 36B, and a size six fits perfectly with a light sweater (if you're keen on wearing thicker layers like cable knits you may want to consider sizing up). The hem of the coat hits at my knees, and the sleeves are a generous length and not cut too slim (I have fairly long arms!). The tailoring gives you a really streamlined look, perfect for professional, formal, and casual occasions. The Thinsulate does the trick during the cold New England winters! This coat also wears really well, it doesn't really wrinkle with wear. I really like the fabric used for this coat as well. My cheaper coats pilled, collected lint, and look dingy after one season, but my Lady Day Coat always looks pristine! This coat is worth the investment!" —Libra

    Get it from J.Crew for $398 (available in sizes 00–16, classic, petite, and tall lengths, and eight colors).

    36. A vegan parka that'll look fantastic on you whether you're in the middle of a blizzard or happily posing for photos with your Starbucks festive red cup.


    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. 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 sizes XS–XL and five colors).

    37. A 3-in-1 Patagonia parka made with 100% recycled down feathers and a shell you can remove when the weather starts to slightly warm up again.


    My husband has the men's version of this coat and always says it's the best investment he's ever made (next to my engagement ring, of course). He's able to wear it from the fall through early spring, so it's definitely worth the money.

    Promising review: "I have had my eye on this jacket for years and finally took the leap this winter. I live in Chicago and walk/public transit daily. I need a coat for all elements (wind, rain and cold). I tested this jacket out today in -4 degree weather. The sun was out and there was minimal wind. That said, this little guy held up well for as light as the down is. It is not bulky and easy to move in. If you live an area that is both extreme cold and wind you may want to consider a heavier option. However, if you’re looking for a solid commuter coat that is light weight and still packs a punch, this one is great! " —Lori A.

    Get it from Patagonia for $599 (available in sizes XS–3XL and four colors).

    38. A fuzzy fleece open-front coat you can indulge in on slightly warmer days when you don't want to sweat through your clothes but still want to embrace the fact it's sweater weather.


    Promising review: "GUYS omg this jacket is definitely a hidden gem. It's so soft and makes you look so sophisticated!! It does shed a little at first, so definitely wash this before you wear it unless you want little specks all over your clothes — I learned the hard way LOL. However, I wore this outfit pictured in 50 degree Fahrenheit weather and it kept me warm! This is definitely one of those 'blanket- but make it fashion pieces' HAHA I love it so much." —@Kathy_Vu

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

    39. And a Columbia jacket inspired by Frozen 2 with a dazzling inside lining and a form-fitting silhouette that'll have you looking as good as Elsa the moment she gives herself a magical winter makeover.


    I had the pleasure of trying this special-edition jacket and it really is, for lack of a better term, magical! It's super warm, great if you're looking for a slim-fit option that'll still keep you nice 'n' toasty — in case one of those Arendelle-like storms comes through. The inside features a sparkly blue coat only you'll know is there, so no worries if you don't want an over-the-top winter style.

    Get it from Columbia for $124.98 (available in sizes XS–XL).
