Regardless of what area of the country you live in, whether it’s the sunny Southwest or the chilly Northeast, the temperatures are bound to drop as we near the end of the year. Once the winter weather becomes too cold for comfort, it’s time to start piling on your outer layers. However, considering the variety of climates we each live in, we won't all be needing the same types of coverage. Luckily, there are winter jacket brands that cater to each climate, and we’ve gathered them all right here.

What you need to survive the next Snowmageddon is vastly different from what you’ll wear when it’s 40º out (which, for some, is “windows-down” weather). So we’re breaking down our favorite winter coat brands to wear for your winter climate, whether you’re in need of a fashionable outer layer or a heavy-duty coat. Get ready to brace the cold!
