Now that winter is here, it's time to discuss the main component of all of our outfits to come these next few months: coats. And while I love a statement coat just as much as the next person, I always try to fill my closet with outerwear staples that surpass the trend cycle, go with just about anything, and are actually warm.
That said, I'm more likely to reach for a classic camel coat or a cozy teddy on any given day, saving more sartorially daring pieces—like busy prints, non-neutral colors, and unconventional silhouettes—for special occasions. After doing a deep dive into the internet, I was able to find the standout coats of the season among hundreds of options at all price points. Whether you're ready to invest in Toteme or The Row or want an accessible option that's still luxe-looking from Mango or COS, you've got plenty of options below.
Keep scrolling for your guide to winter's biggest essential, from draped scarf coats to sweeping wool coats to everything in between. You'll find picks at $1000, $500, $200, and even a few rare under-$100 gems mixed in. You won't be disappointed if you invest in one of the pricier options below or go for one of the budget-friendly pieces.
Made from 90% wool and 10% cashmere, this is exactly the kind of coat you'll be happy to have invested in for the winter months. And since it's menswear-inspired and offers a roomier fit, it'll be a perfect fit for those who like to wear thick layers.
Our assistant shopping editor Ana Escalante did a deep dive into finding the best plus-size coat options on the market, and she credits this beautiful Mango coat as one of the best. Many plus-size garments rely on a baggier fit, so it's refreshing to see a coat that's still sharp and tailored while going up to a 4XL.
At $100, this coat isn't wool or a wool blend but offers the same design and silhouette as higher-end coats. You'll save money with this coat in your closet, but may have to layer more if you want to maximize warmth. According to the five-star reviews, customers don't mind the lightweight material and still find the coat warm enough.
When Mango released this coat last year, it instantly went viral and sold out within the week. A year later, it's back, and despite time passing, the appeal is still there. This time it's in stock, but I'm predicting it won't long till people are asking for another restock.
