I have to admit – as much as I hate cold weather, I absolutely LOVE layering. There’s no better feeling than cozying up in a soft sweater and a warm coat. However, finding the right jacket can be tough. Growing up in Wisconsin, and going to school in Minnesota, I’ve learned a thing or two about how to find a great coat. After LOTS of trial and error, keep reading to find my 5 favorite winter coats!
Top 5 Winter Coats
- This Rebecca Minkoff peacoat from Rent the Runway (pictured above). I love the military style, and this coat is made of a thick and heavy wool aka it will keep you WARM. It’s the perfect coat for wearing to work, weekend shopping, or brunch.
- The Canada Goose Shelburne coat. Seriously ya’ll, they are worth every penny. Pinky promise. I honestly can’t even wear this coat unless its in the 30s or colder because I get too hot! I get asked why I chose the Shelburne over other Canada Goose styles, and the answer is because I felt this one had the sleekest look (as sleek as a puffer can be). This jacket is perfect for any snowy and cold day!
- This gorgeous caramel colored Ann Taylor coat. I’ve spent years, no exaggeration, to find the perfect brown peacoat. This one checks ALL of my boxes. And the removable faux fur collar is such a luxe bonus. I would wear this coat to holiday parties, date nights, and work.
- The Patagonia Nano Puff coat. This puffer is perfect for any outdoor fitness activities, like hiking or running. I’ve worn this on a run when it was 20 degrees and even got hot! I throw it on when I go to the gym as well because it’s easy to stash in those tiny locker room lockers.
- The classic J.Crew Chateau Parka. This coat is a blogger favorite for a reason! It’s beautifully made, comes in tons of fun color options, and the removable faux fur trim on the hood is so chic. I would wear this jacket to go shopping, out to dinner, and to work.
I hope you guys enjoyed my coat round-up! Do you have a favorite jacket? I would love to know! Living in NYC, you can never have too many coats 😉
