The universe has made it clear that it’s finally winter (well, today’s the first day, but that hasn’t stopped the weather from showing us who’s boss.) Blankets of snow are only pretty when you don’t have to trudge through them, and the first flurries have us reassessing whether we should even leave the house. Unfortunately, though, staying in bed isn’t an option for most of us, and braving the cold requires layers. In an ideal world, your winter look is more #fashion than bulky, so we’ve rounded up winter coats that help you achieve that. We TTS-ers abide by three simple outerwear rules in the winter: Wearable, cute, and most importantly, warm. Below are our top picks for practical coats that don’t sacrifice on style.
Our wishlist looks a lot like this Anine Bing number. The shearling stripes make a statement without, y’know, overstating it, and the neutral color palette guarantees it’ll go with most of your wardrobe.
Consider this compact puffer your new off-duty staple. The effortlessly casual, throw-on and go style and budget-friendly price point make it a no-brainer.
Nothing prepares you for winter in NYC like a long black coat. Think like a fashion editor and go for this streamlined, minimal parka from under-the-radar brand The Arrivals.
This coat fulfills all of our furry pink fantasies. Rock this for a night out or dress it down for daytime with a pair of culottes. Don’t be surprised if you see us rocking it outside of Pietro Nolita.
Everyone needs a puffer in their arsenal. Moncler’s updated version comes in a cool space grey with black accents, guaranteeing that you’ll look more model than marshmallow man.
Looking for a more interesting top layer? Add some color and texture with this felted longline bomber coat — it’s crying out to be street style snapped.
Looking to fight the winter blahs? Add some pizzazz to a jeans and boots combo with this sporty ski jacket. The pattern is fun and fresh whether on or off the slopes.
For seriously cold days, turn to this Soia & Kyo down jacket. The double layer and thick collar guarantee a luxe way to stay warm.
Alright, this coat is a lot, but hear us out: It’s showstoppers like these that restore our faith in winter. The coat is currently sold out, but in the meantime we’re refreshing the page praying our friends at The Frankie Shop restock.
