Cold, gray winter days don’t need to spell disaster when it comes to fashion. When there’s snow, sleet or rain in the forecast, there are stylish winter coats that keep you warm, dry and looking chic. When choosing a winter coat, look for these details to stay dry and block out the wind.

DOUBLE CLOSURES

Functionality is everything when you’re on the hunt for the best winter coats. If you live in a particularly chilly climate or plan on venturing outdoors during low temperatures, don’t underestimate the power of coats and jackets with double closures. Styles with double closures, meaning those with zippers and snaps or double zippers, can help block the wind and keep you warm even in the coldest conditions. Coats and jackets with thumb sleeves can also keep your hands extra toasty, as well as prevent wind from traveling up your sleeves as you spend time outdoors.

HOODS

Hoodie jackets are totally on-trend and will keep you warm and cozy under winter weather conditions. Hoodies with ties and snaps will prevent them from falling down in the wind. Also, plush, faux-fur lined hoodies feel soft, provide extra warmth and look luxurious.

LININGS

Be sure your winter coat has a thick, luxurious lining. Some coats are designed with a removable lining so you can wear it on the coldest, bitter days as well as when it is milder. If removable, these linings are secured with buttons or zippers for easy transitioning. However, in the coldest of climates, you’ll probably want to leave that lining in and wrap yourself up in the toasty soft look and feel of a thickly lined coat.

Once you’ve filled your closet with the best winter coats for the season, make sure to pair them with an array of fashion-forward weatherproof boots to create a stylish look that’s outdoor and winter-ready all the way down to your toes. From weather-resistant rain boots to stellar snow boots, keep warm, dry and protect your toes too!
