9 Trendy San Francisco Winter Jackets

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 trendy winter jackets —no matter what Mother Nature has in store—all season long.

5 Party Outfits That Are Secretly Really Comfortable


Zara

1. A Timeless Wool Classic

With a hoodie underneath, it’s the perfect San Francisco uniform for especially cold days.

Zara ($149)

Zappos

2. 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.

Patagonia ($300)

Net-a-porter

3. A BouclÉ Coat

You’re basically wearing a blanket. (And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.)

Étoile Isabel Marant ($530)

Cat Wu

4. Leather Moto

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.

Nordstrom

5. 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.

Burton ($200)

Shinola

6. Bomber Jacket

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)

Permanent Collection

7. Vintage-inspired

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)

ASOS

8. Trendy Velvet Blazer

We resisted the trend for a while, but we’ve come around—especially for this Paris-chic number.

Abercrombie & Fitch

9. Buffalo-plaid Coat

News flash: Lumberjacks are hot. Even hotter when they’re on sale for this cheap.
