It's obvious that if you live in a cold climate, you are going to be wearing your winter coat a lot for the next few months. In fact, it’s the clothing piece you’ll be wearing more often than anything else in your wardrobe. But a winter coat isn’t just about utility; it’s an extension of your personal taste and a way to enhance your entire winter outfit. If you are looking for tips on how to style a winter coat with a pair of jeans, here are some tips on how to do that as well as some examples of the different women’s winter coats and jeans you can piece together.
The long down coat in black is a very bold choice and pairs wonderfully with a variety of jean styles. If it’s not too cold of a winter day and your coat is playing a bigger role aesthetically than functionally, leaving it unzipped and open to show off your outfit is one sharp style move. Pair a long winter coat with a fitted top, a pair of high rise mom jeans and some chunky ankle boots and you’ll have achieved a super stylish, yet laid-back look. If you do anticipate keeping your long down coat zipped up, complete the clean polished look by wearing it with a pair of straight leg denim jeans or skinny jeans. Anything that flares or is too loose and baggy will just make the whole outfit look sloppy. You can finish the look off with ballet flats, loafers (provided you won’t have to trudge through snow), flat ankle boots or mid-calf boots. If you want to maintain a monochromatic look, swap the traditional blue jeans for black jeans. The all-black look will give your winter outfit an elegant feel.
A faux fur hooded winter coat with a pair of jeans is one of the timeless combinations that will never go away; it’ll simply get upgraded throughout time. A long, insulated plush coat in a color like dark blue teal, soft pebble, black, or dark olive green goes smashingly with a pair of skinny jeans or flare jeans. There’s just something undeniably chic about the combination of a faux fur hood on a winter coat and a pair of blue jeans. There is also a tremendous amount of room for variation and the chance to put your own style into the look. Keep it all black with black boots, black skinny jeans, a black winter coat, and a black faux fur hood or mix things up with color. A colored coat with blue jeans or black jeans is a great combination when you need a pop of color on a particularly cold, gray winter day. Not to mention that there are different boot options that go with the faux fur hooded coat and jeans look; long boots, ankle boots, tan boots, black boots, heeled boots, flat boots … the choice is up to you!
A long down coat is a versatile winter coat because it can be worn with both business and casual attire. You can rely on a coat like this when you plan to wear print trousers or solid-colored straight pants to the office, but you can also wear them with a good old-fashioned pair of jeans. Jean color options are essentially limitless (provided they go with the color of the top you are wearing). Blue jeans, black jeans, and colored jeans go with a black or gray stretch long down coat. To add even more texture to the look, wear a colorful turtleneck underneath the jacket. A lavender-colored cashmere turtleneck, a pair of straight leg denim jeans, black leather heeled ankle boots and a stretch long down coat make for a fabulous winter outfit.
As the name suggests, a lightweight packable down coat is definitely something you’ll want to reserve for winter days when the weather isn’t as cold. Nevertheless, it’s still effective at keeping you warm, considering it is designed to withstand temperatures as low as -9 degrees Fahrenheit. Unlike the other long winter coats previously discussed, this isn’t a long coat, meaning you’ll get to show off all your jeans instead of just part of them. Don't limit yourself to a traditional color like black. Browse your options and consider something out of the ordinary, like fresh boreal blue, deep mulberry, meridian blue or sun-washed orange. All these colors nicely complement a sharp-looking pair of blue or black jeans. Since this is a shorter coat that ends at the hip, it looks best with a pair of skinny jeans. This combination maintains an organized, polished look about the whole outfit. To finish the look, opt for a pair of long or ankle boots without a heel.
