Five Cold Weather Coats to Keep You Warm this Winter

Whether you’re going to be out and about or keeping cozy inside this winter, it’s time to update your coat wardrobe.  To make your way through the cold weather, you’re going to want a variety of jackets and coats so that you can mix and match and layer for every occasion.  This year’s must-have coat is the rugged parka (a cousin of the also-ubiquitous puffer jacket), but we also recommend that every man have a nice topcoat in his wardrobe for dressier occasions.  Whether your style runs formal or stays casual, we have a cold weather coat for you:

All Son National Parka | $98 at Urban Outfitters
Tough out the cold, stormy weather in this parka.  Wear it with a sweater and jeans, as shown, or switch out the sweater for a collared white button-down and a skinny tie for a fetching juxtaposition of casual and formal.

OBEY Wasted Youth Coated Jacket | $168 at Urban Outfitters
This coated denim jacket can be layered over shirts and tees - and under your overcoat.

Mayfair Wool Cashmere Topcoat | $257.60 (sale) at J Crew
A wool cashmere coat that’s classic and modern all at once.  Plus, it goes with everything in your closet.

Heritage Toggle Coat | $355 at Banana Republic
Toggle closures on this classic cold weather coat add a nautical touch.  

Kai-Aakmann Black Long Hooded Coat | $489 at Oak
Featuring two internal removable layers, this tough, heavy-duty coat will prepare you for whatever winter brings.

How to Wear Black and White? With Texture and Embellishment!


Pictured: Reformed Silk Ruffle Tank | $58 at Urban Outfitters, Elastic Belt Satin Skirt | $21.50 at Wet Seal, Wool Ruffle Duffle Coat | $187.60 at J Crew, Tulip Faux Suede Boots | $22.50 at Forever 21, ASOS Iridescent Feather Clutch | $42.49 at ASOS.

Black and white can be anything but plain.  Just keep things interesting with texture, pattern, and embellishments.  We’ve crafted a flirtily feminine look out of black and white pieces, perfect for date night.  But take apart the pieces and you can mix and match for work, weekend, and everything in between.  Here’s how to get the look of black and white:

1.  Start with a delicate black and white patterned cami.  The silk fabric drapes nicely, while the texture keeps the cami interesting.
2.  Slip on a silk satin skirt in a forgiving, slight a-line shape.  What makes this skirt particularly fetching is the belt detail - don’t you love it?
3. It’s cold outside, so grab your coat.  We love this coat for its delicate-yet-tailored ruffle detail.
4. Finish off the look with a pair of slouchy suede tall boots - and a statement clutch in iridescent feathers.
