Being cold is not fun, but it’s a lot more bearable when you look fabulous! Now that winter is here, it’s time to move on to winter fashion and that starts with the most important thing you’ll need this season-good outerwear. A plain black coat has its place in your wardrobe, but consider these other winter coats to maximize your closet (& style) to its fullest potential this season!

1. Peacoat

With the cut and shape, this coat is a classic. It can be worn with anything, but it’s a great option to top those dressier outfits. To keep it classic, look for a peacoat in a neutral color such as black, gray, navy, or brown.

When it comes to length, you really can’t go wrong and it depends on the look you want to have. Hip length is more standard, while the longer your coat, generally the more elevated your outfit can look.

This is a coat worth splurging on! Look for wool or a wool blend to keep you warm and classic this season.

2. Puffer coat

A comfy and warm marshmallow? Yes, please! This coat is a great option if you like to be warm. Puffer coats used to be just for function (and skiers), but recently they’ve been making a comeback as a stylish fashion option as well.

This coat is best for more casual occasions. It’s also a great option if your style tends to be more athleisure, as a long puffer coat looks great with leggings and sneakers or boots.

3. Camel Coat

Right up there with the classic peacoat, this is an iconic classic piece that instantly ups your chic level. When the weather is cold, you’ll want a coat that’s long and thick, so you stay warm and protected.

The perfect camel coat is generally simple, but don’t be afraid to look for a few extra details such as a belt tie or tortoiseshell buttons. Not only can you wear this type of coat with your classy outfits and formal functions, but it would work over casual things like joggers, jeans, and leggings too!

4. Faux Fur Coat

Not only will this type of coat keep you extra warm, but a faux fur coat is a great place to show off your personality. Some coats can seem like an afterthought, but this style of coat definitely says statement!

Once you have your classic wool camel coat or peacoat, now is the time to have something in a bold pattern or color that will make you happy and liven up your looks in the dead of winter!

5. Statement Coat

To finish off your winter wardrobe, it’s time to get a statement coat. Technically, faux fur could be considered a statement, but with so many fun styles out there, this will be a good reason to treat yourself to another coat. 🙂

It’s important to have all the basics covered, and once you do, it’s time to add a statement piece! Whether you go for a bright pink peacoat or a leopard print puffer coat, a statement coat is sure to elevate your outfit and your mood.
