All the more reason for you to own some outerwear that will make you feel good wearing it. Invest in a winter coat wardrobe that not only keeps you protected from the elements but spruces up your surroundings with bright colors, feminine flares, and shimmering shells sure to lighten up any drab winter day. Check out our five favorite women's extreme cold weather coats to make your winter a little brighter.

1. The Trench:

You can’t go wrong with a classic. Inspire some intrigue around town as you fight those tumultuous rains in a classic trench with updated styling. Available in either a cotton long trench coat or a more modern cropped style these water-repellent jackets are double-breasted with fashionable epaulets and a button-out liner. Plus you’ll never feel exposed with a full stand collar offering you extra protection against the elements.

Trench coats are a classic for a reason, and they can be worn over almost anything. Everything from a nice dress to jeans and a t-shirt. As long as you love it, it’ll look great!

2. Wool Fit & Flare:

We take our wool coats seriously – as in they seriously keep you warm while also giving you a stylish edge. Our women’s wool coat is simple yet elegant, dressing up any look from a night on the town in your best dress to an escape to the movie theater in jeans and a sweater. This fashionable coat is made from a refined wool-blend fabric to keep you warm. It also has discreet on seam pockets, a smooth full lining, and a rich stand collar protecting you from the biting cold. The Fit and Flare is designed with the intention to give every woman a flattering shape, hitting above the knee and stitched with vertical seaming details for a slimming appearance.

You can wear a wool fit & flare coat over almost anything. For a fancier look, wear a dress, tights,  and heels. If you’re looking to dress in more of a business-casual way, pair the coat with some dress pants and a nice blouse or sweater. Don’t forget a pair of ankle boots and a pair of dangly earrings to finish the look.

3. Squall Jacket:

Don’t let winter stifle your love for fun. Thanks to its shorter aviator style jacket, this jacket lets your style shine through. With a durable windproof, waterproof shell and lightweight insulation for added warmth you’ll be able to hit the slopes – or the chalet – in complete comfort. Plus who can resist those bright colors? Squall jackets are a staple when it comes to the best women's coats for cold weather.

Squall jackets look great over a simple sweater or even thermals! In reality, though, you can wear almost anything with a squall jacket, though. Just make sure it’s not too puffy or elaborate of a shirt, or it might be hard to zip up the jacket, if needed.

4. Down Vest:

If we know anything about winter – and we do – we know that layering is key. That’s exactly why you need this down vest in the mix. With its layer under/layer over versatility, the down vest is a winter wardrobe essential that spans the seasons. Made with genuine 600 fill-power HyperDRY down you don’t have to worry about puff, just how jealous everyone else is going to be when they see how warm and cozy you are in this vest. Plus it’s super flattering with princess seams for feminine shaping. The vest hits hip length and is slightly longer in the back for a bit more coverage.

Pair your vest with a basic top or thermal top for extra warmth. The clean lines of a long sleeve basic will complement and not overwhelm the vest. If you wear a shirt that has a collar or puffy sleeves, it will interrupt the sleek lines of your vest. So, stick to simple shirts, a simple pair of jeans, and finish it off with a pair of warm winter boots and a hat.

5. ThermoPlume Parka:

No matter how good you look underneath your coat, sometimes you just need a jacket you know will be there to protect you against anything winter sends your way. That’s where our ThermoPlume Parka comes in. PrimaLoft Insulation ThermoPlume gives the look and feel of down without losing the warmth when wet. So basically, you could get caught in a downpour of rain or a nasty blizzard and still make it to your car without turning blue. This Parka is made for enjoying those snow days with the kids. Inner ribbed-knit cuffs and front zipper with storm flaps are designed to keep cold air out and warmth in. Plus the faux fur-lined stand-up collar will look pretty cool as you hurl a perfectly formed snowball at your first born.

6. Down Jacket:

There’s a reason that people sleep with down comforters during the winter. They’re warm yet breathable. If you’re looking for a top of the line women's cold weather coat, the down jacket is perfect for you! It will keep you warm, looks sleek, and it comes in a variety of lengths and colors. Down jackets can be paired with anything, but they look especially great with jeans, a pair of boots as well as a comfy hat and scarf.
