I've Mastered Staying Warm and On Trend—These Are Winter's Best 22 Coats

It is official: The colder months are here. Though I've spent entire winters suppressing the harsh truth that temperatures are in fact below zero, this year I've discovered an upside to these unavoidable conditions. Gone are the days of opting for a winter coat solely for functional purposes. Treat your winter blues by dressing in this season's trendiest colors, fabrics, and silhouettes without sacrificing warmth. After over 20 rather frigid winters, I’ve accomplished the art of staying warm and on trend this season.

While warmth is imperative, it no longer puts a restraint on your winter wardrobe. In fact, outerwear is the hero piece that completes your full look. From puffers that could double as sleeping bags and oversize teddy-bear shearlings, this season’s winter coats will undoubtedly disrupt your seasonal slump. Fortunately, I've put in the harsh hours of freezing in NYC to decipher which coats hold true to the testament of being both cozy and cool.
