The bone-chilling season has yet to release us from its grasp — which means there’s plenty of time 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 star-inspired winter style can look to Kate Hudson’s chic snow bunny ensemble in Aspen (where she attended the World Snow Polo Championships with fiancé Danny Fujikawa), Mindy Kaling’s classic black Tory Burch puffer (worn while visiting her Massachusetts hometown) and Julia Garner’s shiny hooded parka that she sported during a ski day at Lake Tahoe.
Ahead, check out our top blustery weather picks, including the best puffers under $100 on Amazon, pieces from the latest fashion collabs (such as Reformation x Canada Goose, The Great. x Eddie Bauer and Gucci x The North Face) and more.

We love the idea of pairing this affordable single-breasted H&M coat with wide-leg trousers for an effortless winter look. It’s made from a blend of recycled polyester and wool, and features notched lapels, shoulder pads and a back vent.
Everlane The ReNew Long Liner
Go camo and sustainable with Everlane’s ReNew long liner jacket, which is on sale for 70 percent off right now. This layerable is made of recycled polyester and is designed for layering. Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle and Yara Shahidi have been seen in the minimalist-cool label.

Lululemon Down for It All Jacket
One of the best women’s winter jackets for running, Lululemon’s Down for It All jacket was designed to keep runners warm. It’s made with the brand’s water-repellent, windproof Glyde fabric with four-way stretch and features a slim, hip-length fit.
The Great. x Eddie Bauer The Reversible Bomber Jacket
Part of The Great. and Eddie Bauer’s cool outdoors collaboration, the duo’s lightweight Reversible Bomber Jacket features a vintage-inspired patchwork design on one side and an all-over print on the other.

(Adele, Billie Eilish and Mandy Moore are often spotted wearing the outdoor gear brand.)
Orolay Fleece Down Coat
Remember the Amazon jacket seen all over the Upper East Side and beyond, including on Naomi Watts, Emma Stone and Lucy Hale? Orolay’s cult-favorite coat is still a fashionable and functional option for anyone looking for one of the best women’s down jackets in this year’s Pantone shade of Very Peri. It comes in several other chic colors and shearling-trimmed options.

Columbia x Star Wars Men’s Republic Parka
Columbia’s latest Star Wars collection takes cues from The Clone Wars-era Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. This special edition Republic Parka comes in Obi-Wan Kenobi (cloud grey) and Anakin Skywalker (blue) colorways, and it will indeed keep you warmer than a tauntaun (without the stink). Listed in men’s sizes, the brand suggests that women size down for this multi-layered hooded coat, which features a waterproof shell, 650 fill power down insulation and the outdoor gear brand’s Omni-Heat Infinity thermal reflective technology to keep wearers cozy in even the most Hoth-like conditions. The parkas are finished Jedi and Republic insignia and an internal “blood chit” labels in the intergalactic written language of Aurebesh.
The Best Women’s Winter Jackets Over $500
Canada Goose x Reformation Shelburne Reversible Parka
Sustainable fashion label Reformation and Canada Goose have teamed on a range of eco-conscious outerwear with punchy prints and retro floral designs. The Shelburne reversible parka is among the best women’s jackets for winter, thanks to the mid-thigh length, 625-fill responsibly-sourced duck down and the recycled performance satin twill that keeps you warm in temperatures as low as minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit.
Nobis Phoenix Ladies Extreme Parka
Marvel star Simu Liu is an ambassador of cool Canadian outerwear label Nobis, which clearly knows a thing or two about outfitting fashionable folks in chilly weather. The Phoenix parka is one of the best women’s winter jackets for extreme conditions while earning you style points. It’s designed to help you face the wind, rain and snow in conditions as cold as minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and boasts a seam-sealed construction, hand warmer pockets, a wind flap with magnetic closures, heavy elastic rib cuffs with thumb-hole openings and other features with the harshest weather in mind.
Gucci x The North Face Hooded Embroidered Printed Shell Down Jacket
After first joining forces for fall/winter 2021, Gucci and The North Face’s third collaboration of statement-making essentials ($450 to $3,400) is inspired by the outdoor gear brand’s cult-favorite silhouettes from the ’70s and ’90s and forest landscapes. The line includes cable-knit scarves, shearling slides, logo-covered boots and accessories, and of course, puffer jackets and oversized coats. Released last September, there are still a handful of pieces left online from the outdoors-ready luxury collection, including this quilted hooded down jacket in a light pink colorway with mint green lining.
