When you live in New York City, a winter coat isn’t just something you throw on to get from point A to point B—it’s an integral part of your wardrobe. After all, not only do you spend so much time wearing winter coats, but sometimes, you’re so cold when you come inside that you don’t want to take them off. So, it’s important to find a coat that represents your personal style just as well as the clothes you wear underneath it. Here are eight options that just might do the trick.
Not only can you wear this coat indoors as part of your outfit, you also have two different ways to do so. The reversible coat offers a classic faux-fur option in navy on one side, and a glitzy, head-turning metallic material on the other.
Short Cashmere Overcoat, Brunello Cucinelli ($4,495). Saks Fifth Avenue, 611 Fifth Ave., 212-753-4000; 225 Liberty St., Brookfield Place, 646-344-6300
With this jacket, you basically get two pieces in one: A cozy, cashmere overcoat and a dapper blazer.
Break My Heart Jacket, Bailey 44 ($368). Bloomingdale’s, 1000 Third Ave., 212-705-2000; 504 Broadway, 212-729-5900
This coat would be a nice, simple option without the belt, but the faux-leather sash seriously ups the chic factor.
