30 Winter Coats Every Woman Should Own

The coat we want may not always be the coat we need, and vice-versa. When the options for silhouette, weight, color, texture, and more seem limitless, it can be difficult to narrow down just what piece of outerwear is the best — and most practical — for you. If you're going to invest in a piece (and, let's be honest, a solid winter coat can cost major money), searching for durability and longevity is just as important as looking for something that's classic, yet current. And trying to find an item that checks off all four boxes can definitely be overwhelming.

Since outerwear is an everyday piece, shopping around for the perfect one(s) takes some close attention and patience. To lend a helping hand while you search for the coat that will make or break your winter wardrobe, we've rounded up 30 that are worthy of an appearance in your closet.
