15 Standout Coats of the Season for the Ladies

The beauty of a fabulous piece of outerwear is that you can be wearing anything underneath and still look great. So whether it’s as polished and beautiful as the work or after 5 outfit you have beneath it; or, whether it’s covering up your workout gear as you run some quick errands, it’s the easiest way to look pulled together…oh, and it’ll keep you warm, too. In this week’s Clothes & Conversation,“Ladies, Ready for Winter? We’ve Got Your New Coat Picked Out” we talked about some of the trends for the season and our take on how to interpret them for the Mark Sale lady – someone who wants to look updated and modern, but isn’t a slave to fashion. Quality is always a key factor, and it’s never as important as when it comes to picking outerwear. You wear it a lot and rely on it to get you through the cold weather settling in on us. So, we’ve edited down the array of options out there to our top 15 here. Work, a night out, a weekend day, these coats will have you looking as good as you’ll feel.
Let us know what you think in the comments below and on social media. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

The importance of a timeless camel wool coat simply can’t be overlooked. It’s just one of those items a lady should have, so if you don’t have one in your closet already, this is a true Find. This one from Fleurette is done in a modern-fitting silhouette that is as timeless as the color. Made of world-renown 100% Loro Piana wool, the luxury quality matches the style, so you’ll have it forever. Wear it to work, with jeans, and for a night out. The neutral camel color will go with all of your hats, scarves, and gloves. (And if you already have a camel coat you love, it comes in black, too.) The sale price on this investment piece makes it the right time to go for it.

J.Crew - Double-cloth Lady Day Coat with Thinsulate®
J.Crew knows how to have fun with coats, in a way that is so wearable. They consistently deliver on creating the right colors for the season, whether you want a neutral or are ready to play with some color (and all are available through the ‘shop it’ button). This style, called the Lady Coat, is one of their best. The waist detail and single button closure – all the way up to the neck for warmth – is slimming and always modern looking. The best part – and why it’s our favorite J.Crew coat – is the Thinsulate® lining, which ensures this Italian wool coat will keep you warm even when the weather gets seriously cold. And that’s not something all wool coats can do. The lining doesn’t add any bulk, either, so, this is a flatterer in size 000 or size 16. It even comes in Petite and Tall, which is a major perk to avoid needs alterations.

The high neck on this Gallery coat will have you looking stylish, while you stay warm. While you can wrap a thinner scarf around your neck inside this collar, it also looks great with a colorful heavy-knit scarf wrapped around the outside of the collar when it’s buttoned up. In addition, the fit-and flare shape looks really pretty over a dress – and certainly works with any pants, too. It’s an easy, modern fit that comes in Petite and goes up to XL at a price that ensures you’re getting your bang for your buck.

The wool fabric of this Sofia Cashmere cocoon coat is blended with alpaca for a seriously soft and luxurious feel that is just gorgeous. This is a grown-up coat, one that will make you feel like a sophisticated woman every time you put it on. The collar is simply amazing – and on a practical note, warm and cozy. You can play with it to stand up a bit around your neck or drape, as shown in this picture. And the asymmetrical button closure adds a hint of modern edge that will never go out of style. The medium brown color shows off the boucle texture, and it works with all your black accessories just as easily as it coordinates with ivory or pops of color. The modern fit is relaxed and available up to size 14.

Ted Baker - Lorili Funnel Neck Wool Blend Wrap Coat
While this Ted Baker virgin wool and cashmere blend coat comes in simple black, and a gorgeous vibrant purple, we’re featuring the taupe camel. We’ve mentioned the importance of a camel coat in our first pick here, and in Clothes & Conversation this week. And, of course, we can’t talk about a classic camel coat without also mentioning Burberry – it’s expensive, and well-worth it. But this version offers a sleek, contemporary styling that rounds out our camel picks. The over-sized collar makes a beautiful funnel neck when buttoned up, and the belt and slim fit are feminine and flattering. The simple styling will always be fashionable, and the knee length ensures you can wear it with everything.

Capes are popular this season, but we’ll be honest, we find ourselves saying that most seasons, so there’s no reason to shy away from getting one – you’ll surely be wearing it in Falls and Winters to come. Unlike most capes though, this Nanette Lepore interpretation is a hybrid of a jacket and a cape, so you have the warmth and practicality of an actual coat, with the stylish look of a cape. The sleeves are bracelet length and flared, and the body has a beautiful a-line shape, both of which create a cape-like silhouette. The military-inspired brass buttons command a very rich look against the clean lines of the coat. For added warmth, pair it with long leather gloves for a chic finish that will take you from day to a dressier night with ease.

Ellen Tracy - Faux Fur Trim Hooded Cape w/ Faux Leather Belt
Ellen Tracy offers a more playful version of a cape – and at this amazing sale price, you can certainly have some fun. If a cape is too basic it can be less than flattering with too much fabric that can make a lady look boxy. But this one does it just right. The belt creates shape that is necessary whether you are wearing the XS or the XL. And the faux fur (along the hood) and leather trim (down the snap front placket), creates the right amount of style for a night out. It is short enough to wear over a dress, but will still keep you warm. Add those long leather gloves for that femme fatale finish.

Cole Haan - Signature Belted Asymmetrical Wool Blend Coat
Cole Haan gives us an over-sized collar, asymmetrical closure, and gorgeous Bordeaux color for a coat that has all the right style updates for the season. It comes in black through the ‘shop it’ button, too, but this deep red is the color of the season and this shade flatters most skin tones. Plus, we love how easy it is to wear with scarves and hats in any basic neutral, as well as pretty colors like blush or olive green. The versatile length dresses up or down, so it can easily be your go-to on most days. The modern fit is available in sizes 2-14 that looks great on most every figure. If you are looking for a sleeker, contemporary fit, Soia & Kyo offers a similar version with a leather belt.

Duffle coats always offer timeless style with just a touch of sporty edge that we love with trousers and jeans. Larry Levine’s version has a removable hood that gives it the edge over some others. Well that, the great price, and its authentic details, like it’s real leather toggle closure and stylish patch pockets. It comes in camel for a truly classic look, but the black version we’re featuring has a modern feel to it. (There are similar styles in navy and olive, too.) This one also wins in its extended size run, 4-16, in a fit that will work over your bulky sweaters all Winter long.

Can’t decide between a puffer and a classic wool coat? Soia & Kyo makes the decision for you – don’t decide! The timeless grey coat has a black puffer vest insert and cuff details that provide great warmth, and even greater style. Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see the alternate views to get a better look. In XS-XL, the contemporary fit is slim, which keeps this a-line style from looking too bulky. This is a perfect everyday coat, with a two-way zip closure for easy sitting, and double stand up collar so you’ll stay warm even if you forget your scarf.

The round quilt detail of this Dawn Levy jacket creates an architectural look that is so, so chic. Like the last coat we featured, this one also has a vest insert. Not only does it create additional warmth, it keeps you looking stylish when you are unzipped. This isn’t one of those hardcore puffers to head out into the snowstorm – it’s just a great, practical coat. Not too heavyweight, but still quite warm, it makes for an easy everyday option that has an edgy look over a sleek night out outfit (think black coated jeans and heels) and will add style to your leggings and booties when you’re running your weekend errands.

Mackage - Qeren Convertible Down Jacket
We always love a “twofer” (you know, 2-pieces-for-1). This down puffer has a secret…the sleeves zip off. Brilliant! We wish all of our jackets did this. The shoulders have a stylish leather detail, and that’s where the zipper is hidden. When the sleeves are removed, you cannot see the zipper at all. (Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see the alternate view.) And it makes this seriously warm, down-filled coat something you can start wearing now. As the weather still has that lovely Autumn feel, wear the vest over a plaid shirt or sweater. Once it starts getting cold, add those sleeves back on and you are ready for any snowday – especially if you zip the fold down collar all the way up. Mackage is known for their fine quality and craftsmanship, and this jacket is no exception. The contemporary fit isn’t too trim, so you can layer underneath with comfort. We’re featuring the timeless black version, but it comes in a couple fashion colors through the ‘shop it’ button, too.

This Andrew Marc puffer blends fashion and function with ease. It is made with 800 fill power down feathers – that means you should stay warm even into the hardcore negative double-digit weather. If you have to suffer through that, why shouldn’t you do it in style? The leather trim and fur-trimmed hood take this jacket up from a basic quilted puffer. And in XS-XL this stylish piece looks great on everyone. Treat the olive as a neutral – cold weather accessories in pops of bright color or soft pastels work. And, of course, a great plaid plays into the countryside feel with urban ease.

Canada Goose - Shelburne Slim Fit Genuine Coyote Fur Trim Down Parka
OK, now we’re getting serious about the cold weather. And that means it’s time to bust out a coat from Canada Goose. Known for their seriously warm coats, their sporty style is a must-have to combat the elements. If you look around, you’ll find yourself spotting this brand on other women. And you know what else you’ll notice? Those women are actually warm. This Shelburne style is going to keep you warm down down to -13 degrees Fahrenheit, thanks to its 100% duck-down fill, fleece lined pockets, and fur trimmed hood. Canada Goose manages to deliver all this with practical style that won’t have you looking too bulky, and a slim fit that goes up to XL. (It runs true to size, but if you are between sizes, we suggest sizing up.) This deep blue adds style, and there are some other great fashion colors through the ‘shop it’ button. If you have to bundle up for the cold, there’s no reason you can’t do it with some color. But it does come in black and grey, too. They pay attention to every detail and have a lifetime warranty – it’s an investment in your Winter sanity.

The North Face offers a tailored take on a puffer jacket that is just fabulous to get you to work on a snowy day, and is still effortlessly casually on the weekend in its graphite heathered grey color. Even though it doesn’t look like it, don’t worry, the shell is nylon, so it can handle rain and snow. The 550 power 100% down fill protects you down to below zero (within reason, of course). The rectangular quilting creates a slimming look and the longer style will keep your legs warm, whether you are wearing a skirt or leggings (and it will protect your clothes from those slushy curbside corners). It has a 2-way zipper, so walking and sitting is still completely manageable. Remove the hood when the weather is cooperating with you.
