The coat-buying process is highly underrated. Nobody tells you how difficult it is to choose a warm jacket you actually like, let alone invest in one that will last you for the rest of your adult years (c'mon, they're expensive). If you're anything like me, who just can't seem to make a jacket decision for the life of her, we've made the process a bit easier for you by rounding up 15 stylish picks ahead that won't weigh you down this winter (or make you look like a giant cotton ball, promise).
Vince Camuto, $120
A fine line between vintage and preppy that truly makes you want to wear this baby for a night out.
A coat with just enough room to peek your head out because what more do you need, really?
North Face, $150
Despite what your brother thinks, wearing shorts out in 35 degrees is not acceptable, but this insulated hoodie is.
Fenty x Puma, $450
It may keep you warm for about five minutes, but like, Rihanna designed it so that's all that really matters.
Canada Goose, $525
A hoodie, but make it plush.
The epitome of athleisure—padded with an insulated feather down interior for the "gym."
This deep violet jacket can double as ski-resort wear or a chic pairing with jeans for date-night.
We know, we know. But this one's warmth is worth the squeeze.
Canada Goose, $729
Pro tip: some of the best feathered down bombers are hiding in the men's section.
Brunello Cucinelli, $1,718
A timeless piece you'll keep forever.
No more crying when you walk outside, plus it reaches your knees for maximum warmth.
It's called a Vale jacket for a reason.
A puffer that doesn't *actually* look like a puffer.
L.L. Bean, $229
For *all* conditions.
North Face, $150
Your friends will have no problem spotting you in the snow.
