The cold chill of winter is upon us. You may want to stay in the warmth of your apartment, but as we get back into our commutes and offices, the idea of buying a new winter coat that’s just as cozy doesn’t sound that bad. This is a year when, regardless of the temperature, outside is the place to be and a stylish, warm coat is your best friend.

You can throw on a leopard-print wool coat over a sweat suit for a midday walk around the neighborhood, or you can swaddle yourself in a full-length puffer that makes you feel like you’re still in the comfort of your own bed when you wake up early for that workout class you want to skip but for which you don’t want to pay the no-show fee.

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