Winter is no picnic, and in order to brace ourselves for the harsh weather ahead, we need all the proper gear: from warm and cozy sweaters and corduroy pants (which are totally happening right now) all the way to great and resilient footwear, gloves, hats, scarves and finally – a super chic winter coat that will keep our bodies warm and our style on point.

There are, of course, tons of options as high-end brands have clearly shown us during the fall/winter fashion week, so all we need is a little refresher course on the crème de la crème and then we can make a purchasing decision that perfectly meshes with our style.
1. Long, classic, belted
Belted winter coats are highly trending right now, especially long, perfectly fitted ones that flatter the figure and give it that gorgeous hourglass shape. If you ask us, the longer the better, so when choosing one, make sure it grazes the ankles.
Some of the finest winter coats of this variety we’ve seen this season have been spotted on models walking for such designers as Victoria Beckham, The Row, Hermes and Jacquemus. Now, a coat of this length is highly conspicuous and statement-making as it is, so the smartest thing you can do is pick one in a neutral or non-color, as it will give your look a timeless, chic vibe and allow you to mix and match it with almost anything.
2.Alive and in color
If anyone knows how to bring a splash of color, it’s definite Marc Jacobs. His collection of supersized saturated and vibrant colored winter coats is exactly what you need to fight the winter gloom. Judging by the looks on the runways, it’s safe to say that these will certainly keep you warm.
Aside from that, the poignant hues make it playful and just a tad flamboyant, so you’re bound to make an impact. The final incentive – and oversized winter coat of this kind can be dressed up or down. You can pull it off at the office with the most conservative outfit, or you can play it down athleisure style with a pair of trendy Reebok sneakers, a sturdy pair of jeans and your go-to stylish sweatshirt.
P.S. Don’t forget to snag a wide-brim fedora, it will make you look totally fierce and mysterious.
3.Chic and sleek
For a woman who loves trends but also has a soft spot for classy timelessness, a double-breasted fitted checked winter coat is a definite must-have. If this doesn’t give you the sharp and smart vibes, we don’t know what will. Besides, you get the best of both worlds. The fitted cut and the buttoning are completely classic, while the check pattern provides you with just a sufficient amount of that trendy infusion. It can be worn with anything, to any occasion, and don’t be afraid of mixing it with other trendy prints, as mixing and matching is highly encouraged now.
4.A little decadence never hurt nobody
While this may not be the winter coat you want to own in case you have zero others hanging in your closet, it’s definitely an indulgent item that you should have if the circumstances and your current wardrobe state allows it. The king of murky florals, Erdem, has been able to go from murky-floral dresses and suits to extravagant and luscious murky coats and my, oh my, has he pulled it off with flying colors! This isn’t your everyday coat. This is something you will pull out when you want to absolutely dazzle, whether when attending an upscale event or even a romantic one. However, it definitely brings the wow factor, so be sure to keep that in mind.
5.The statement dresser
There are many women out there who have the exact same thought – when it’s winter, and baby, it’s cold outside, you have to button up. That means there is little room left for people on the streets to admire your carefully put-together outfit. In that case, you want to make a true statement with the ‘weapon’ at your disposal and be just a little flamboyant.
Luckily, the animal print has never been more popular, so you can snag everything from dresses to boots, bags and even coats. Just make sure to choose the print closest to your heart – and the rest of your wardrobe, as you don’t want to mix way too many colors and other prints with something as conspicuous as this.
