After months of enjoying nice weather, the cold chill of winter is upon us. While most of us will be spending most of our days inside our new offices (a.k.a. our homes), you can only stare at your apartment walls for so long before you need to get some fresh air and (safe) human interaction. As much as the idea of buying a new winter coat sounds impractical, it’s the opposite: This is a year when, regardless of the temperature, outside is the place to be and a stylish, warm coat is your best friend.

Plus, a nice coat is a way to dress up without having to do much. You can throw on a leopard print wool coat over a sweatsuit for a midday walk around the neighborhood or swaddle yourself in a full-length puffer that makes you feel like you’re still in the comfort of your own bed when you meet up with friends for an adventurous outdoor hangout.

With that in mind, shop the best winter coats including puffers, classic wool coats, faux furs, fun, fashionable prints, and more below.
