Whether you’re a winter lover or cringe at the thought of it, choosing the right coat is key to surviving winter. First, you need to prepare yourself for the disappointment of overpriced winter coats.
As a winter hater I recommend getting a long coat (almost to your knees) with a hood in case it starts snowing and you forget your beanie at home. But what’s most important are pockets. You don’t want your hands freezing and, let’s be honest, gloves aren’t very comfortable for phone addicts.
The most important feature in a coat is it should be waterproof, unless you are OK with buying a pretty wool coat for snowless days and a waterproof one for snowy ones. Yes, coats are expensive and it sucks. But if you buy the right one from the start, you won’t have to buy another coat for at least a few years.
Read labels carefully. Polyester won’t keep you warm during winter and some coats only have small percentages of wool. Actually, I’ve seen affordable wool options and waterproof coats in H&M and Zara. Yet Columbia, The North Face and Canada Goose are definitely the coats that will keep you the warmest.
Buy them big. Always have room to wear layers inside your coat. That’s why bigger sizes are always best while shopping coats.
