The breezy fall temperatures have arrived, which means it's time to bring back your best coats. Although most of us would rather venture out wrapped in fuzzy weighted blankets, coats can feel just as cozy but look way cuter. (They obviously also pair way better with sweaters and boots!)

If you don't have that coat that feels like a warm hug already in your closet, it might be time to get yourself a brand new one now that winter is lurking around the corner. Some fall trends coincide with warmer winter coat styles, so you can get yourself a coat that'll last you through both seasons — and well beyond that. A major win for both our style game and wallets. 

With trends are available in different price ranges, finding the best coat that'll suit both your style and budget needs has never been easier. From trusty puffers that'll last for multiple seasons to oversized coats perfect for layering, we're ready to take on the season ahead with one (or multiple) of the 19 options below.


If you don't already, you might want to start considering shackets as a closet staple — bonus points if they are plaid or checkered. Shackets can dress up monochrome ‘fits with just the right amount of color, without being too overbearing (or looking too stark against any neutrals). With a silhouette that’s not a jacket but not a shirt and without being too light or too heavy, they provide the perfect amount of warmth for transitional weather. And, when the temperature starts to lower into winter, they're great for layering.

Puffer Jackets

Puffer jackets are trending this season — and we know exactly why. First and foremost, they provide tons of warmth. Some puffers can even be worn in below Fahrenheit temperatures — yes, we're looking at you Aritzia's Super Puffs. And if that's not enough, of course, they come in tons of cute styles. If you don't own one already, make sure you snag one of these gorgeous puffers as soon as you can because they will sell out.

Loose Fitting Blazers and Coats

Hear us out: Your closet needs one (or multiple) loose-fitting blazers and coats. While you can layer your oversized blazers over hoodies, long-sleeve tops, sweaters, or t-shirts, you can also layer an oversized coat over your oversized blazer. Double the stylish fun!

Shearling Jackets

A shearling jacket can do no wrong in any wardrobe. Seriously. They come in tons of different style options, look fabulous on all, and pair well with practically everything. If that weren't enough, you have a wide range of color options to choose from, too. Some of our favorites include shearlings that combine chic dark brown shades, the classic black leather with white shearling details, and even black and camel. Did we mention that these are some of the best investment coats under $250? Each will also last you through multiple seasons.

All-Over Furry Coats 

Aside from providing us with all-day cozy cuddles, faux-fur and teddy coats look fabulous with every single outfit while actually keeping you super warm all day long — even on the briskest of winter morning walks or during quick blizzard outings. The best thing about these coats is that you don't need tons of additional layers to keep warm, which comes in handy if you are going to be taking your coat multiple times throughout the day.
