Stay warm while looking cool in this season's most functional coat trend: the parka. A trip of pink faux fur gives this classic cold-weather staple an unexpected twist.
Nod to the glamour of Studio 54 (minus all the pageantry of sequins and lamé) with an elegant faux-fur jacket. We adore this one, with its multitones and patchwork chevron pattern; the directional design is slimming and gives this throwback style a modern update.
Want to add some texture to your winter topper—without adding bulk? Opt for a more tactile mohair style. The material has the perfect amount of fuzz, but it won't make you look like a teddy bear.

Combat frigid temperatures—and grey days—with a statement coat. From boiled wool to full-on raised tweed, the blending of tactile textures is the hottest trend in coats.
If kooky colours cloud your sartorial judgement, stick with a black-and-white palette. A jumbo buffalo check in a king-sized moto shape is edgy but luxurious—especially with the addition of a dramatic tuft of faux fur at the collar.

Take a cue from the stylish set sauntering around Whistler, B.C., and Mont-Tremblant, Que., and layer your outerwear. The go-to après-ski look gives new life to your transitional pieces, and when they're properly stacked, the silhouette is more sleek and less super sized.
The next time you decide to invest in a wear-forever coat, skip basic black and cozy up to rick navy instead. This luxurious robe-style coat with elaborate ribbed sleeves is the perfect protector for both special occasions and everyday jaunts.
