The bone-chilling season has yet to release us from its grasp — which means there are still a few months left to bundle up in style. Whether you live in sunny Hollywood (where temps under 50 might be deemed “cold”), a snow-capped ski haven like Aspen or elsewhere, we’ve rounded up some of the best winter jackets for women for staying chic in every locale.
Those seeking style inspiration can look to Kate Hudson‘s winter getaway in Colorado, where she wore a plush lamb fur coat by Marni; or Alicia Keys and Karlie Kloss, who both (separately) wore oversized black puffer jackets on recent trips to the slopes. Vanessa Bryant donned a logo-happy Gucci coat while in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and Chelsea Handler wore a quilted purple jacket while vacationing with fellow comedian boyfriend Jo Koy.
Ahead, check out our top blustery weather picks, from the best puffers under $100 on Amazon to layerable styles from Everlane and Eddie Bauer and more brands frequently spotted on stars.
