Regardless of what area of the country you live in, whether it’s the sunny Southwest or the chilly Northeast, the temperatures are bound to drop as we near the end of the year. Once the winter weather becomes too cold for comfort, it’s time to start piling on your outer layers. However, considering the variety of climates we each live in, we won't all be needing the same types of coverage. Luckily, there are winter jacket brands that cater to each climate, and we’ve gathered them all right here.

What you need to survive the next Snowmageddon is vastly different from what you’ll wear when it’s 40º out (which, for some, is "windows-down” weather). So we’re breaking down our favorite winter coat brands to wear for your winter climate, whether you’re in need of a fashionable outer layer or a heavy-duty coat. Get ready to brace the cold!

Fashion Winter Coats

When it's still warm enough to wear a coat that stands out, a statement-worthy fashion jacket from brands like Ganni, The Row, Saks Potts, and Stand will be so chic for winter.

If you need a little more coverage, a chic, down puffer will keep you warm without compromising style. We're loving these styles from Aritzia, Topshop, and Free People.
