A fashionable winter coat guide

Snow’s on the ground, hats are on our heads, and hot cups are in hands. Yup, it’s officially winter. If you plan on — gasp — leaving your house this season, you know that you’re going to need a coat that will do more than just keep you warm; you want to look good too.

Well, I have some good news for you! This is your chance to stand out in the crowd of classic black puffer coats (or CBP for short).

Your coat doesn’t have to be sad, boring and signify the coldest, darkest time of the year. Here’s your chance to add color and brighten up the sidewalk when you lunge out into the icy-cold tundra we call “the outdoors”.

Below are some great options to help you stay warm, cute, and chic- oh my!
(And we even have links, so your just one click away from your dream coat)
