A good winter jacket can be hard to find. Finding one that keeps you warm and looking great can be even tougher. But there’s no style task too tough for the fashion spotters at SheKnows. We were able to source six sleek jackets that keep you warm and looking nothing like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Toggle Cape Puffer Jacket

There’s absolutely nothing “puffy” about this cozy cold weather jacket with a built-in cape feature for added coziness ($198). The neutral navy hue goes with just about anything and the unique design means you can feel good knowing you’re keeping out the cold while still staying true to your stylish side.

Pajar “Debra” 3-in-1-Parka

Whether you’re waiting for the bus, waiting in line or just need to get from point A to point B without getting frost bite, you can do it in style in this sleek black hooded parka ($595). The toasty fleece inner layer can be worn with or separate from the windproof, waterproof shell.

DKNY faux fur puffer parka

DKNY Faux Fur-Trim Puffer Parka

Cold wind doesn’t stand a chance against this fashion forward parka with a sporty, go-anywhere design ($175). We love the removable hood with faux fur trim that keeps our head warm and free of falling snow, and the belt creates a flattering, slim silhouette.

Sam Freestyle down coat

SAM Freestyle Down Coat Stand Collar

Who needs a boring winter coat when you can show off your colorful side in this bright lemon-hued jacket with a stand collar and a glossy, get-noticed finish ($295)? The warm, down-filled outer layer is perfect for beating the chill on casual days. We love the lemon but there are other hues to choose from, including red, white, black and orchid.

Spiewak Hutchinson Parka

Give your outerwear collection a bit of military flair with this medium-length army green parka with a belted waist and oversize hood ($345). The belted waist adds a feminine touch, while the sleek design looks great and keeps cold out, making for a coat that seamlessly blends function with fashion.

Cheap Monday Hiromi Coat

What’s better than one coat that keeps you warm all winter? A coat that turns into a cropped jacket! We love this knee-length parka with a high neck and deep pockets that zips off to become an ultra-cute jacket ($150). Choose from navy or black and switch up the length whenever you need a change.
