9 Coats to Buy for All the SF Winter Weather
Hey, 48 degrees is cold here
While we (thankfully) don’t need a sub-zero insulated coat, we do need a little help keeping warm and dry once the temp drops below 55 degrees and there are downpours for seven days straight. Plus, with puffer coats and thrift-store-inspired looks making a major comeback, layering is going to be lots of fun. Rock these nine types of toppers—no matter what Mother Nature has in store—all season long.
A TIMELESS WOOL CLASSIC
With a hoodie underneath, it’s the perfect San Francisco uniform for especially cold days.
A TRIED-AND-TRUE PUFFER
Hey, they call it "Patagucci" for a reason—this puffer’s not cheap. But its metallic hue will set you apart, and it translates seamlessly from city streets to ski slopes.
A BOUCLÉ COAT
You’re basically wearing a blanket. (And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.)
Étoile Isabel Marant ($530)
This wardrobe staple remains a must-have—all year, every year. It’s well worth the splurge for buttery Italian lambskin. Plus, it’s made right here in the Bay.
Cat Wu ($1,150)
A TRUSTY RAINCOAT
Whether you're snowboarding in Tahoe or holiday shopping in Union Square, if the goal is to stay dry, then this waterproof jacket is for you.
Because most of the time it’s all the extra warmth we need. Also, boyfriend fit = so comfortable and so in style.
Shinola + Golden Bear ($515)
Oversize boxy coats that look as if they were bought for $5 from a local thrift store are having their moment this season. They somehow make any outfit look laid-back and polished...at the same time. Oh, and they’ll certainly keep you warm.
Permanent Collection ($500)
TRENDY VELVET BLAZER
We resisted the trend for a while, but we’ve come around—especially for this Paris-chic number.
PS by Paul Smith ($564)
News flash: Lumberjacks are hot. Even hotter when they’re on sale for this cheap.
Abercrombie & Fitch ($53)
