While definitely mild compared to the East Coast chill, L.A.'s winters are super fickle. Temps drop dramatically at night, forecasts are way off, and you can pretty much always count on an unexpected rainstorm. All of this to say that, no, indulging in winter fashions when you live in L.A. isn't totally ridiculous. As a matter of fact, it's practical — and, we'd go as far as to say totally necessary.
Lucky for us, this season's trends seem to cater particularly well to L.A.'s far-from-severe winters, with an influx of what we're dubbing the West Coast Coat. Available in a range of cuts, these breezy styles come in lightweight fabrics and are perfect for layering over a T-shirt and shorts (sans tights). Most can also easily fit a sweater underneath, if, say, you happen to be heading to an evening bonfire on the beach.
But, why spend any longer telling you about them, when you can see for yourself? Ahead, we’ve rounded up our 30 favorite coats for mild winters. Shop the slideshow, and you'll be just the right amount of cozy all season long!
