    What better way to usher in 2014 than with a freezing cold front and a foot of snow? (A three-day weekend, perhaps?) But, while we're all for staying indoors — bundled up in a plush duvet and our cozy PJs, sipping hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows — snow days don't really exist for adults. So, if you can't escape the elements, you best be prepared with outerwear that's up to the task. We're talking those trusty, all-weather parkas that'll withstand freezing rain, bone-chilling winds, slushy puddles, and everything in between.

    Don't you dare muck to and from work and risk ruining that beautiful pastel coat you splurged on this season!

And, for what it's worth, we'd totally don any one of these 15 toasty numbers on sunnier days, too. They're too cute to keep banished to the back of our closets. Follow suit, and bundle up in one of our new sartorial faves. You'll be glad you did.
