Editor-Approved Down Coats for Every Budget
It’s this editor’s first winter in New York, which can only mean one thing: It’s time to stop procrastinating and buy a down coat because it is so cold and I just can’t handle. Being a native Californian, I’ve never had to buy such a thing, and as I’ve learned, winter coats are a thing in New York. I’ve definitely asked around for advice on how much I can expect to spend (hint: a lot) and the best brands to buy them from. It seems like the resounding consensus is that if your cash flow doesn't runneth over, Uniqlo is your best bet, and if you want to get fancy with it, Moncler and Canada Goose are where it’s at.
But being the fashion editor that I am, I wanted to do a deeper dive on the down jackets out there and make an informed decision about the piece that’s snatching a major chunk from my Mexico vacation fund. Scroll down to shop jackets as affordable as $70 to lavish iterations that go for a bit more, and if you have a secret source for your amazing down delight, do share it with me in the comments at the end. I beg you!
