Winter Coats

Which winter coat should you buy? Find out how to stay snug in style.

Buying a coat means finding a comfortable fit and price. Chris James from Neiman Marcus has a few tips and style choices so you don't get left out in the cold.
  • If you don't have the budget to buy several coats, spend your money on a classic style like a trench, pea coat or camel coat.
  • Look for interesting details like an exaggerated lapel, bell sleeves, rouched shoulder, faux fur trim, accessories or additional accents.
  • To get more bang for your buck, look for removable collars, interchangeable belts or removable lining.
  • If it's in your budget, look for a coat that's a conversation piece with big, bold details& but not too much of a statement that you can only wear it for one season.
  • Leopard print is a statement, but it will never go out of style.
  • Branch out from basic black and choose a lesser-seen neutral like navy or eggplant to add uniqueness to your winter wardrobe.
  • If you're petite, don't buy a floor-length coat. It will overpower you.
  • A "car coat" is a great length for almost anyone. It hits at mid hip and gets its name because you can easily get in and out of a car while wearing it.
