Cozy Winter Coats

Cozy up with the perfect winter coat that speaks to your lifestyle!   

Casual Living

The casual coat is one that is an essential for most people. For those who prefer a comfortable and practical coat that can be worn mostly everywhere and everyday this is what you need to look for.

Tip for Women: For women, warm padded jackets and peacoats are much more practical for everyday and weekend wear. They look great with jeans and cords. Keep it darker for day-to-day activities since it’s more prone to getting dirty.

Sweater, Rachel Roy, $199
Jeans, Citizens, $230
