With the trees dropping their leaves and the mercury plunging, it’s time once again to pull our warmest gear from the depths of our closets and prepare to brave the cold. Or maybe, rather than dusting off last year’s winter coat, you’d rather treat yourself to a brand new one before the snow flies? Nothing takes the sting out of winter’s chill like a little retail therapy! We’ve rounded up the best winter coats for women, so you can stay warm, dry, and fashionable all season long.
L.L. Bean Women’s Ultrawarm Coat
Premium 650-fill-power down makes this full-length coat super warm while also being lightweight. It’s equipped with a water-repellant and stain-resistant fabric to keep you dry (and clean!) no matter what winter brings. A removable hood with detachable faux-fur trim, protective mid-calf-length design, and regular, plus, and petite sizing (with five color options) make this a long winter coat with everything you need!
Columbia Mountain Croo Long Down Jacket
This plus-size coat from Columbia Sportswear can stand up to any storm, with its waterproof fabric and tightly sealed seams that keep your body heat in. Made with 650 fill-power down insulation, it’s seriously warm. Ribbed cuffs, a drop-tail hem (that means it’s longer in back than in front), an attached hood, and a collar that snaps up complete the look and will keep you dry no matter how blustery it gets outside. Zippered pockets, soft elastic cuffs, and a drawstring waist are much-appreciated touches, as well!
