The best part of winter is finally being able to style that new and cozy coat that you’ve been eyeing down for the last few months. Coats and jackets are staple pieces to have in your wardrobe for this season and there are many styles to choose from.
We’ve narrowed it down to the comfiest and fashionable winter coats and jackets you need to help you survive the next couple of months.


From corduroy to metallic puffers, these jackets are popular for the chilly season. Puffers came into trend last year and are seen again this year with new designs and prints including the famous leopard print. Some of these jackets come with faux fur attatched to the hood, however, the majority of puffer jackets are hoodless.

Lately, we’ve noticed a rise in oversized puffer jackets emerging and we can’t help but share the excitement of anything oversized for this season. So yes, we’ll take this jacket in every color and print.
Aritiza is the go-to shop for puffer jackets. JCI Fashion graduate and Instagram blogger Emma Leger is wearing her pink “super puff” TNA jacket available at Aritiza.

Puffer jackets can also be found at stores including Topshop, Forever 21, H&M and Acne Studios.

Trench Coats

Trench coats may not be the warmest jackets to wear for winter, as they are an Autumn favorite, but why not switch up your style from wearing coats all-day, every day. Going out on an afternoon coffee date, or an important meeting? The trench coat is your afternoon go-to coat that can be styled with a long wool scarf to keep you cozy.

Teddy Jackets + Coats

Instagram Blogger and Influencer Arielle Charnas came out with her teddy coat for her brand Something Navy, sold exclusively at Nordstrom. The teddy coat that every Instagrammer has been drooling over is available in the dreamiest blue and light brown color.
This coat sold off the shelves as soon as the collection launched, however, keep your eyes open for similar coats or perhaps a new release because this is a must-have coat that belongs in your closet.

The teddy jacket is an essential jacket to have this season. Not only does it feel like you’re walking around snuggled up in a blanket, but it is definitely the fashion bloggers favorite winter piece.

Bath Robe Coats

Yes, you read that right. The robe coat allows you to walk the streets in a coat as warm and cozy as your bathrobe. This coat can be styled in a variety of ways, from smart and professional to super casual. The robe coat is always completed by tying a wrap at the front.

Could coats get any cozier?

Leather Jacket

Every fashionista’s favourite jacket comes in leather. Whether it’s the Wilfred Free leather jacket from Aritzia or a hot pick from Nordstrom, this jacket is an essential wardrobe piece that you must have.
