Every woman heads into winter needing a polished coat and most focus on finding the perfect trench or peacoat. But in an effort to be practical, a good puffer coat that will keep you warm while skiing or playing around in the snow with your kids is a good investment. Actress Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted leaving the gym in NYC wearing the Marmot Ama Dablam down jacket and while it’s simple, the quilting adds a stylish touch! And it comes in green and blue, too!

Super-cozy and the definition of chic, a cape has a soft sexiness and transitions beautifully between seasons. I love to throw one on on those days when it’s still cold enough to wear a coat, but not so cold that I need to stay completely under wraps. Black is infinitely practical, but this rich green cape on Leighton Meester (caught shooting a scene for Gossip Girls in New York) can counteract the dullest, end-of-winter days. Do you love it, too?

Even though it feels like spring down here in Miami, I know for some of you winter is still alive and well. Even so, I am jealous of those of you who get to wear super cute coats like these! It’s hard to say whether it’s the sleeping-bag coziness of a puffer coat, the weightless quality, or the fact that they’re toasty and sophisticated – but this look totally works for me.

With the winter months around the corner, we are lured by various kinds of coats in different shapes and styles. If you live in an area where snow, sleet and rain follow you around like the plague – invest in a parka! Parkas are a great option – they keep you extremely warm, are weatherproof and have cute furry hoods!

So Ali McGraw in Love Story, right? It’s such a timeless shape for both men and women. In fact, I still wear a ten-year-old Marc Jacobs navy peacoat all the time, but am always looking for more. I’m currently obsessed with this one from KarmaLoop — slightly flared, with just the right modern, youthful silhouette. And Macy’s has a terrific collection of peacoats for men, too, like this one from Kenneth Cole.

It’s one of those cool, nautical styles that looks equally amazing on both sexes, no?
