The 4 Outerwear Pieces To Get You Through Winter

Once your dormant apartment heater starts hissing again, you know that winter is officially en route. And with the cold-weather season comes cozy, oversized scarves; the ready-for-whatever boots; and — of course — the bulky coats that take up half our tiny closets. Feeling more practical than popular, winter outerwear is a tough code to crack: Too often, it feels like a jacket or coat either offers only warmth or a wow factor, rarely ever both.
Well, we're on a mission to make sure that is not the case for your wardrobe this time around. Never ones to leave you high and dry (er, cold and confused?), we've rounded up the only four outerwear styles you need to have on your radar this season, all from H&M's latest winter collection. From sleek, long silhouettes to double-breasted button-ups, these pieces marry style and survival for any and all of your outdoor activities. Click ahead to see for yourself how winter wear can be anything but an afterthought.

The Cool-Girl Puffer

A puffer jacket manages to do the impossible: possess that undeniable cool factor while also providing the ultimate in insulation. Go for a cropped, plum pick instead of a standard black style, and embrace a monochrome vibe with a matching turtleneck and trousers.

The Wool-Blend Coat

Perfect for your everyday commute or weekend museum hopping, a knee-grazing, gray coat with clean lines and a smart collar is the definition of chic. Pair it with a striped button-up shirt (half-tucked for an unfussy feel) and pinstriped pants for a look you can truly take anywhere.
