Cold weather cape
If you’re looking for something a little less structured, we suggest this Betsey Johnson wool blend tie waist cape coat
(bluefly.com, $178) that offers both comfort and warmth. The design might be minimal, but the overall effect is all drama. We love the high neck with jeweled snap closure and the fact that this chic piece can easily go from day to night.
Worried about the cold? Now you don’t have to be. You’re sure to stay toasty in this simple but stylish Esprit toggle front navy coat
with this winter’s must-have – faux fur – trimming the cozy hood (overstock.com, $71). We’re particularly in love with the oversize pockets for added warmth.
Even boho babes need to stay warm and this DKNY drape front puffer coat
is the ideal choice for anyone who wants to look good while keeping the chill at bay (dkny.com, $445). Soft with a relaxed fit, we love the loose but flattering fit of this cool coat.

need not be boring. You’ll be sure to turn heads in this gray Tracy Reese coat
with wide color block stripes in red, blue, burgundy and black (lordandtaylor.com, $395). The get-noticed coat features a stand collar, long, wide sleeves and tab hook closures in front.
Fabulous faux fur
Show off your wild side in this gorgeously glam Hilary Radley faux fur coat
featuring a rounded, oversize collar, turn back cuffs and sateen lining (bluefly.com, $268). We love the plush feel and luxe look of this eye-catching coat. Perfect for any time, this plush piece is a particularly fashionable choice for evening.
You can count on Betsey Johnson to create a coat that really gets noticed. If you’re ready to turn more than a few heads this winter, take a look at this fabulous coat

The modern chic woman needs to look good on the go and isn’t afraid to make fashion forward choices.
We’ve developed a serious coat crush on this stylishly structured Rachel Zoe button detail wool coat
in on-trend winter white (intermixonline.com, $575). Pretty and posh, this collarless coat features an asymmetrical overlap adorned with black leather buttons and a detachable black leather tie belt.
Take your cold weather look to the next level with this eye-catching Alice + Olivia pea coat
featuring a smattering of sparkly sequins that pop against black tweed (bergdorfgoodman.com, $495). We love the long flared sleeves, swing silhouette and the fact that this piece can easily dress up any winter outfit.
Add a dose of color to your winter wardrobe this year with this gorgeous green double breasted coat
(Topshop.com, $150). Elegant yet practical, this stylish coat is modern with a timeless quality we love. The military buttons and grosgrain ribbon tie add to the appeal.
Elegant, simple and sophisticated, if you favor timeless pieces over chasing trends, classic style is for you.
Wear this simple but stylish gray coat
with anything and feel good knowing it won’t be going out of style any time soon (espritshop.com, $175). The classic cut and color make it a perfect piece of outerwear for many seasons to come and we particularly like the coarse finish of the fabric which gives the coat some added interest.
Take your winter wardrobe to new heights with this chic Steve Madden coat
in a sumptuous shade of camel (modcloth.com, $135). Large black buttons, an elegant high collar and a belted waist add to the classic silhouette and feminine vibe of this stylish coat.

(barneys.com, $359). The fully lined coat features a fitted silhouette and detachable fur collar.
For anyone who looks to the past for style inspiration, we have some vintage-inspired coats to add to your retro collection.
Lady in red
We were instantly enamored with this bold red coat
in a retro silhouette (neimanmarcus.com, $209). The vintage-inspired piece features a rounded neckline right out of the 1960s and a brown leather placket down the front to give it a more modern spin.
It’s not every day a coat this charming comes along, and when it does, we suggest snapping it up. This cute charcoal gray coat
(modcloth.com, $175) features a Peter Pan collar, pleated swing shape and eye-catching cut-out detail at the hem.
You won’t have to worry about winter standing in the way of style when you wear this chic vintage-inspired coat
with a ruffle collar (shopruche.com, $92). We love the deep teal hue, feminine details and how great this piece will look with snowy white or bold red accessories.
Choose fashion and function with this set of cute coats with a stylishly sporty vibe.
Cute and quilted
Sometimes the best coats are the ones that boast both fashion and function. Stay warm and toasty in style wearing Laundry’s cozy down filled parka
with a cinched waist and a removable faux fur collar (macys.com, $130). This practical piece makes a great everyday coat for everything from running errands to chasing kids around a snowy yard.
When you’re on the go a lot, sometimes a shorter jacket can be better than a longer coat. We love this white shawl collar Buffalo puffer jacket
with a quilted, insulated interior and large hood for added warmth (djpremium.com, $135). Cable knit sweater detail on the sleeves and a top front portion add to the overall appeal of this cute coat.
When we think of quilted coats, we often think bulky. Not so with this sleek belted Nautica coat
that has a much more feminine feel than your average winter warmer (nautical.com, $100). The sophisticated navy coat offers maximum warmth without having to compromise on style.
