At a certain point, winter won’t be coming anymore. It’ll be here. And when that time comes, you’ll be grateful that you made an investment in a coat or jacket that works for your personal style and the climate you live in.
That’s why we went to the trouble of breaking down the six categories of winter coat that will work from Chicago to Charleston, from Portland to, well, Portland, and everywhere in between. No matter what your budget or where you call home, you’ll find something that works for you below.

If you live somewhere that doesn’t get that cold (we’re talking to you, Famously Hot Columbia, SC), you can make it through the winter with a lightweight layer. And as far as style goes, a quilted jacket is your best bet for combining form and function.
