Happy Friday babes! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is in less than two weeks (which means Black Friday is in two weeks)! I’m already fully focused on Christmas-are you? Since I stared my career, this is actually the latest in the year I’ve started thinking about Christmas! I worked for corporate retail right out of college and I was in the “seasonal” department, meaning we started Christmas strategies in like….July! This is also about the time I make my first gift-giving list of the holiday season-aka usually a bunch of “what to get for this person…?!” One of the best gifts to give and receive (in my opinion) are coats and/or jackets. Most people appreciate the value of a beautiful coat and it’s something the recipient wears over & over again.

I’ve rounded up some of the best winter coats for women:
I hope this sparks both gift-giving ideas as well as gifts-for-yourself ideas (one for me, one for you is totally acceptable, right?!)
Classic: This J.Crew jacket I’m wearing is a staple. I’ve linked their sister store’s more affordable version here. I also love this sherpa jacket I saw on one of my favorite bloggers Lauren Kay Sims.
Teddy: This style is a bit more trendy, but still going strong. I don’t think “cozy” is really going anywhere! I have this bomber style teddy I wore in a post earlier this week, and I also love this regular fit one. This one is under $60 and super cute!
Puffer/Parka: Fashion does not have to be compromised in looking for something warm (remember the days when ski jackets=winter jackets)?! The parka’s from this brand are my all-time favorite (and hands down most warm)! This puffer is only $30 and comes in 6 colors!
Moto: From leather to suede, Moto jackets are always fun and add instant edge to an outfit. This suede moto is a steal for under $40. Also, you can find the best jackets at TJ Maxx around this time-I’ve linked two moto jackets suede for $99 here and faux leather free people for $59.
Vests and Pullovers: not exactly jackets, but outerwear just the same! Patagonia is on sale (1 item for 20% off)! I’ve been eyeing this vest and this pullover forrrrr-ever! This super popular pullover is also on sale for under $50! This cardigan and this robe are not on sale but they are SO cozy and would make a great gift. I’ve also linked more affordable options for the pullover here and the vest here.
