Take out those sweaters and pull on those socks—the cold weather is coming. This winter, feel as toasty as a marshmallow without looking the part with a little help from high-quality down. One of nature's best insulators, the feathery stuffing traps warm air and keeps it close, keeping you warm. And the jackets below keep you stylish as well.
Even though the skies may be gray, it doesn't mean your wardrobe has to be. This SAM coat comes in all your favorite primary colors—like cherry red and blue—and even a few secondary shades (looking at you, gunmetal silver). Even better is the versatility of the jacket itself: the length is just-above-thigh-grazing, not too short and not too long and perfect for every rise pant you've got on your shelf. The thumbholes will protect your hands on days when you forget your gloves at home, but with all of the pockets you can store them in (inside, outside and sleeve), that just got harder to do.
If you're looking for serious versatility, this Woolrich parka is not joking around. Its 2-in-1 reversible construction gives it a longer sartorial shelf life which, when paired with the craftsmanship the 180-year-old brand is known for, makes it a more-than-worthy investment. Dyed in a silky tan with scarlet pops giving it modern flavor, it's a coat that seems to have mastered quite the magical concoction: cool, neutral, and understated all at once. Deep pockets, a slim hood and tortoiseshell buttons are just more simple touches that make it a puffer not to pass on.
Like to keep the basics, basic? This Patagonia coat is certifiably so, but don't let appearances fool you; it's deceptively packed with 800-fill-power down that makes it anything but. Despite its compact shape, it's got all the bells and whistles you didn't even know you wanted: zip pockets for small things, big things, and a stuff sack when you need to stow it with other things. True to the brand's eco-friendly ways, the goose down it's stuffed with is traceably and humanely sourced, and the external water-repellent fabric is made of 100% recycled polyester, so it's a coat that will have you feeling warm inside and out.
If you want something that can withstand any sudden tempest, this hardy L.L.Bean jacket has the high-tech you need. With water-repellent DownTek that stays dry 10x longer than the original stuff, it's one of the company's warmest coats, keeping you snug even at temperatures lower than 15℉. The flattering boxy shape gives it the boyish, Maine-ish attitude of its heritage, while the brass buttons look just as good on the black as they do on the navy edition. The result? A high fashion jacket from a time-tested brand, perfect in any closet.
While one goose heads south, another heads north. The hugely popular Canada Goose jackets are today's snow season staple, able to keep you warm when the weather is far from it (5℉ is this jacket's limit). Inspired by military fashions, this coat sports a cool camouflage—but don't worry about being camouflaged: the reflective taping on the drop-down back panel is just one of the things making sure you stand out. With down padding all the way up to the split hood and two-way side zippers for ventilation, it'll keep you just the right temperature no matter the weather. And once you make it indoors, carry the coat around like a backpack with its innovative interior straps. Consider it hands-free cool, built for the cold.
With Herno's history of carefully crafted outerwear, this down coat is the epitome of label-free luxury. Each pouch was injected with feathers for guaranteed even distribution—the light weight and soft feel that result are just added bonuses. A welcome break from the brand-mania of today, its simplicity is key to its success, with minimalist stitching creating a visual of effortless elegance. Also available in beige, the gray is extra sleek for style that transitions easily from daytime sojourns to evening shows and warmth that knows no limit.
From a company that got its start making sleeping bags, this coat is definitely one you want to snuggle up in. And thanks to its length, you can wear whatever you want underneath when you do. Offering warmth all the way down to your calves, this is a coat up for any cold-weather challenge, especially when a holiday party calls for a short dress. It's a quick piece to throw on when you're dashing out the door—no need to worry of clashing or flashing; this jacket is long enough to stand on its own. With thick square quilts and a glossy exterior, its lining makes it infinitely fashionable, helping ease you out of the camel coats you wore all fall and into the stuff of holiday dreams. Now that's not something to sleep on.
