It's the season of celebration! But while we're excited for all the winter festivities, bundling up in boring jackets can feel like a drag. Luckily, your warm and cozy coat can still be sleek and stylish thanks to the excellent options this season.

From military-inspired buttons and faux-fur styles, to classic puffers and plaid patterns, these are our favorite ways to brave the cold and still look cool.

Military inspired

Perhaps the biggest outerwear trend of the season comes in the form of gold buttons and piping. Bonus points for toggles and flap pockets!

Plaid

Whether you want a dose of masculine or preppy when it comes to your outerwear, plaid can fit nicely into either category. The only trouble you’ll have is deciding between bold checks and more muted hues. Check mate.

Evening

Your favorite party dress deserves an equally amazing topper. Ensure warmth by choosing a length that’s at least as long as your cocktail dress and don’t be afraid to go bold with the color or pattern. A brocade print or unexpected silhouette will help you stand out from the crowd.

Faux fur

What’s the next best thing to staying home wrapped in a big blanket? Wearing a faux-fur coat, of course. These ultracozy styles look luxurious and chic, but feel like a hug from a teddy bear. Dress it up or down and don’t be afraid to wear it with everything you own.

Puffer

A weekend-wear favorite, a puffy coat can feel sporty — but that doesn’t mean it should be reserved for the slopes alone. Try it with a sweater and jeans or style with slacks and a sweater for an athleisure-chic vibe.

Belted

A classic wool coat with a twist — otherwise known as those belted “robe” coats — are easy to get on board with and even easier to style. Try pulling it just a bit off the shoulder for a runway-inspired look.
