Brr! It’s getting really cold out there. Time to cocoon ourselves in full-length coats that will warm us and protect from the elements. Our favorite styles are big and bulky, with enough space to layer and then some! One good coat will take you from points A-Z and bring you home in one piece.
Full-Length Coats to The Max
Starting with the most extreme coverage, we head over to the trusty trench. Full-length coats in duster long lengths keep your legs dry and there’s something to be said for that.

Another good trench style is the belted variety. Belted full-length coats are super office appropriate and are very grown up. The trendiest styles are oversized with frontal buttons. Total meeting of the minds.

Faux and teddy furs are also wonderful to wrap up in. For ultimate comfort, look for full-length coats with large lapels in faux shearling. They usually have side seam pockets that can double as mittens in a pinch. It’s always nice to wear a little statement maker that is super cozy to boot.
Now’s The Time
To get the most use out of your coat, it’s best to buy now. Full-length coats are available in abundance and will get max use until late Spring. It’s the most important element in a Winter wardrobe, so splurge for quality. Look for styles that won’t pill and that will keep you toasty and warm. Your health may depend on it and you’re certainly worth it!
