Winter is just around the corner, which means it's time to stock up on chunky knits, cozy sweaters, and all things fleece. And while you're at it, a stylish and durable coat should be at the top of your shopping list, because once the bone-chilling weather sets in, you're going to need something more heavy-duty.
A good winter coat should keep you warm and dry without feeling bulky or weighing you down — and it should also complement your wardrobe. Whether you're in the market for a sleek wool overcoat you can wear to the office or a casual parka you can layer over jeans and a sweater on the weekends, we’ve found the style for you.
We made the search easy and found the best winter coats for women, from wool to down and everything in between. Check them out below!
The best overall
It doesn’t get better than super-warm goose down insulation and a quilted, flattering fit. That’s just what you’ll get with this solid design from The North Face. The water-repellent finish makes this rain and snow-friendly, while a high neck will ensure you stay warm no matter how cold. This machine-washable coat also features secure zip-front pockets, a removable hood and two-way front zip closure.

The best teddy coat
Inspired by cute plush bears — and perhaps the 1970s — the trendy teddy coat is a great addition to any winter wardrobe.

Either way, you’ll stay warm and look impossibly chic.
