The faux-fur trim on the collar and cuffs give this wrap coat a glamorous vintage vibe we can’t get enough of.

This lightweight puffer can be layered under a waterproof shell for extra warmth, or worn on its own as a festive topper.

We won’t judge if you also use this fuzzy coat as a robe around the house on particularly chilly days.

A leopard-spotted faux-fur coat will never go out of style. Plus, the cropped silhouette of this Anthropologie style won’t overwhelm your frame or bury your curves under unnecessary fabric.

17. Cupcakes And Cashmere Vera Coat
You can never go wrong with a classic plaid overcoat. This ’70s-inspired take with rust, beige and brown stripes will work just as well with a floral midi in fall as it will with an oversize knit and wide-leg jeans mid-winter.
