When you live in DC, a winter coat isn’t just something you throw on to get from point A to point B—it’s an integral part of your wardrobe. After all, not only do you spend so much time wearing winter coats, but sometimes, you’re so cold when you come inside that you don’t want to take them off. So, it’s important to find a coat that represents your personal style just as well as the clothes you wear underneath it. Here are eight options that just might do the trick.
Culver Faux Fur Reversible Coat, Opening Ceremony ($695). Saks Fifth Avenue, Mazza Gallerie, 5555 Wisconsin Ave., Chevy Chase, 301-657-9000
Not only can you wear this coat indoors as part of your outfit, you also have two different ways to do so. The reversible coat offers a classic faux-fur option in navy on one side, and a glitzy, head-turning metallic material on the other.
Short Cashmere Overcoat, Brunello Cucinelli ($4,495). Saks Fifth Avenue, Mazza Gallerie, 5555 Wisconsin Ave., Chevy Chase, 301-657-9000
With this jacket, you basically get two pieces in one: A cozy, cashmere overcoat and a dapper blazer.
Break My Heart Jacket, Bailey 44 ($368). Bloomingdale’s, 5300 Western Ave. NW, Chevy Chase Village, 240-744-3700
This coat would be a nice, simple option without the belt, but the faux-leather sash seriously ups the chic factor.
Reversible Turf Print Neoprene Parka, Akris ($3,590). Nordstrom, Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, 1400 S. Hayes St., Arlington, 703-415-1121
Who needs an eye-catching holiday dress when you have a wow-worthy coat like this one?
T-Navron Italian Suede Biker Jacket, Hugo Boss ($898). 1054 Palmer Alley Way NW, 202-408-9845
This streamlined, suede biker jacket will up the cool factor of any holiday party outfit.
Hanne Faux Fur Sweater Coat, B Collection by Bobeau ($138). Bloomingdale’s, 5300 Western Ave. NW, Chevy Chase Village, 240-744-3700
This sweater coat, complete with a cozy faux-fur collar, is just as chic (if not more so) than many of the actual sweaters available this season—so why not wear it all day or all night long?
Florence Embroidered Wool Coat, Isato ($545). Anthropologie, 950 F St. NW, 202-347-2160
Keep it classic with this streamlined black coat that has just the right amount of personality in its metallic embroidery along the hem and cuffs.
Band-Collar Leather Jacket, John Varvatos Star USA ($446). Neiman Marcus, Mazza Gallerie, 5300 Wisconsin Ave. NW, 202-966-9700
Looking for something a bit more dressed up than the standard leather moto jacket? This blazer-like design definitely fits the bill.
