A classic cloth coat can do just about anything. It gives me a certain level of polish that just makes me feel properly dressed – even if I’m just in a pair of sweatpants and sneakers on my morning coffee run. That’s the magic of a perfectly tailored shoulder or nipped in waist. From timeless camel to trendy fire-engine red, our winter coats edit might be just what your wardrobe needs.
Ever since I saw Tar last year, I’ve been dreaming of long, black, perfectly tailored coat for winter. Staud’s Ralph woven coat is modern minimalism at its best, with sleek lines and lapels. It might be a little more expensive but Anine Bing’s Quinn coat has a similar silhouette, but it also comes in navy and tan. On the bigger side, Vince’s brushed wool double-breasted coat is suited for a heavier winter wardrobe.
You don’t have to go for a neutral, either. Make a statement in a chic, wintry plaid made up of unexpected colors like this cobalt, rust and chocolate brown coat from Avec Les Filles. I also love this less colorful black and white number from Pilcro.
If you want something REALLY major, look no further than this stunning cream coat with detachable scarf from Helsa. It feels like something Natasha Richardson would’ve worn in the Parent Trap during a rainy London night. Winter white is a fun way to approach coating, like this Loulou Studio coat.
On the slightly more relaxed side of thing, a wrap coat might be less buttoned-up but it’s not any less elegant. I love Banana Republic’s black cashmere coat and COS’s extra-thick black robe. On the lighter side of things, this REISS coat is the best of both worlds with double-breasted lapels and the wrap tie.
