It's time to quit joking around, it's cold outside, and unfortunately you just can't rely on jackets alone any longer. They're being benched on good terms, of course, but the current state of affairs means something more substantial is in order. In case you needed further reasoning for considering the long, woolen overcoat, none of these are boring black. Come on, your closet needs it.
Rochas Wool Blend Coat : Bonsoir, winter white dreams. Barely-fuzzy cream cloth is a one-step way to add dimension to your winter repertoire. Those everyday black ankle boots will look shinier, and that navy dress you love will seem crisper when worn with this light, bright coat.
Rejina Pyo Oversize Kate Coat: An out-of-the-ordinary option, the wide, diagonal belt stretching from front to back is interesting but still fuss-free. Think of all the knits you'll be able to fit in those spacious sleeves. Also of note: the flash of turquoise perfect for dramatic exits.
O'2nd Long Wool Coat: Here, a cocoon-y shape is the main player. A rounded, gently curved upper and roomy midsection are pretty much everything you could ask for—but diagonally-cut pockets keep things flattering.
Babaton Jacoby Coat: With this coat, you've got options. Worn open, it's surprisingly swingy and light, the kind of thing you'd want to wear while shopping and flitting in and out of fitting rooms on an idyllic fall day. Tie the robe-like belt and button up the funnel collar, though, and poof, you're ready for a snow storm.
Tibi Chalk Stripe Coat : Something slinky, pinstriped, and suit-inspired for those less concerned about blizzards. Wear it with a side of well-deserved pride.
