6 Coat Trends That Look As Warm As They Do Good

After an unseasonably warm beginning of winter (hey, we're not complaining), the recent cold snap has certainly caught us off-guard. Perhaps this is the world’s reminder that, yes, “winter is coming,” but regardless, we’ve been living in our warm-weather fantasy for far too long. And although you’ll have to pry our favorite leather jackets from our hands, we’re willing to admit that now might just be the time to add another layer to our look.

Considering your coat is what people see the most of from December through March (at least), it shouldn't be an after-thought. Sure, you can break out the neutral number you've had for the past five years...or you could treat yourself to a new, on-trend piece. Sure, plus-size clothes often get a bad rap for having limited options, but there’s actually a myriad of size 14-plus coats all over the web. And, let us tell you: They look good.

Click through to see the six styles we're all wearing this season. These pieces won't just keep you bundled up all winter long — they'll completely transform how you get dressed.

The Parka
This utilitarian style is the perfect pairing of fashion and function: Lots of pockets, faux-fur trimmed hoods, and waist-cinching drawstrings make this coat the ideal option for those who need to battle the elements, but want to look good in the process.

The Overcoat
Blame it on Kim Kardashian’s ability to turn anything into a trend, but the classic wool overcoat is popping up on the shoulder of every Insta It girl. Since the look is meant to feel effortless and sophisticated, stick with solid colors, single-button closures, and slim lapels.

The Faux Number
There’s just something luxurious about wrapping yourself in something so soft and furry. (And really, who needs authentic fur when faux versions are better than ever?) Whether you prefer something that resembles the real deal or you’re more into the fantastical route, it's hard not to love a piece that basically doubles as a blanket.

The Puffer
Puffer coats are ubiquitous once temperatures drop, so you need a statement-making style to stand out from the crowd. If you’re the type who’s always cold, this is the perfect investment piece to keep you looking and feeling good all season long. Leave those plain versions on the rack, though: Instead, opt for vibrant colors, unique accents, or structural designs.

The Shearling
Though shearling gives us some throwback '70s vibes, we’re always excited when it resurfaces. Give it an effortlessly cool edge by pairing the coat with sleek faux leather pants or distressed jeans; or, try a more dressed-up twist with a satin skirt or sequined sheath. Either way, people will be stopping you for shopping tips.
