The Best Winter Coat Brands For Surviving The Cold In Style

Share

Coat season is imminent. If you haven't taken the time to find the piece you'll reach for repeatedly for the next five or six months (why does winter seem to last forever?), it's time to consider the style worthy of your investment. The good news is that the best winter coat brands are serving up plenty of options that check the boxes of being both warm and well, cool. A brand new coat is likely your first (and possibly your largest) splurge of the season, so it's important to pick a style that you can envision yourself wearing as happily in March as you will right now. Luckily, with the eight brands below, you'll have no problem pulling off an impressive cost-to-wear ratio.

Unsurprisingly, these coat brands tend to hearken from colder climates — necessity begets design after all — that range from NYC to Copenhagen to Vancouver. For the trendsetter, there are plenty of bright colors and funky prints to experiment with, or for the forever classicist, sharp tailoring and subdued shearling are in the mix too. And while not every brand listed below is exclusively designing cold-weather gear, each has set itself apart in the space with its own distinctively wintery aesthetic. Now, before freezing temperatures set in, pick out the hero piece of your winter wardrobe.

Saks Potts

If a statement coat is what you're looking for, then search no further than the quirky-cool designs of Danish label Saks Potts. Funky prints, furry details, and retro silhouettes have made the brand an It-girl favorite.
