Here in New York, coats are like cars to Los Angeles. In other words, they are essential. (Mostly because we don’t really have cars, our feet are our mode of transportation, and it gets freaking cold in the winter.) But aside from being functional and preventing, you know, inconveniences like frostbite, outerwear can also be the focal point of a look. Hopefully a good one, but that’s none of my business.
Ahead, shop 20 of our favorite coats this season. If we’re going to spend a large chunk of our lives in something, it might as well be chic, you know?
