SHE Winter-Coat Roundup: 15 Pieces You’ll Love!
When Heather and I were discussing this blog post, we realized we have totally different opinions on what coats we like to wear.
Even though I live in Indiana, I always lean towards a lighter coat. Even though she lives in California, she leans towards a heavier coat!
We decided that for this blog post we needed a massive roundup of the best, most affordable jackets that you can wear in all types of weather!
Below you’ll find lightweight, medium, and heavy coats!
These are the coats that you throw on when it’s still warm out, but it gets a bit chillier at night or there’s some windier days! Most of these are recommended for 55 degrees and over.
This organic cotton coat has an exclusively designed floral print, inspired by Jacobean embroidery. Crafted from sustainable organic cotton, it features a detachable hood, Thought branded buttons, inner and outer pockets, a dropped hem and thumb holes for added coziness. Yes, please!
Elegance Restored has this jacket in 4 different colors and I could buy every. single. one. The cargo jackets are made out of tencel, a highly sustainable fabric. Bonus: They have large pockets and look great over dresses, so you can carry all your essentials with you.
Pact - $50
I have this hoodie, and I bring it with me on every overnight trip. It’s perfect if the air conditioning is up way too high, the weather is a little bit chillier than I expected, or I want something super soft to wear. Massive bonus, it’s made of organic cotton.
The Flourish Market - $59
A chic take on a classic style, this bomber jacket is going to bring you in all the compliments this year. That’s a great time to mention that your jacket is fairly made in the USA out of sustainable materials! If you like The Flourish Market, check out our interview with the founder here.
Able - $148
Made in Mexico and made to wear with anything. The simple style and neutral color can help you dress any outfit up or down and when people are showering you in compliments, it gives you a chance to talk about Able’s phenomenal ethics. They were also the first company to publish all their wages!
Cotopaxi - $80
If you are in a windy area, than this is what you need. The Teca Windbreaker from Cotopaxi (a certified B-corp organization) comes in lots of bright colors to brighten dreary days, is made of recycled polyester, and is guaranteed to last you 61 years.
Prana - $119
A denim jacket is a staple in any closet because it’s classic, versatile, and can be worn year-round in almost all temperatures. This particular denim jacket is mostly made out of organic cotton so it’s going to be more comfortable and a bit stretchier than other denim jackets you might find!
Patagonia - $100
If it’s rainy in the winter where you live, then this is the perfect jacket for you. The chest pocket doubles as a stuff sack, and the jacket is light as a feather so you can keep it in your car or purse for when you get caught in the rain. The weather-resistant material will keep most of the elements off of you and if you need to layer, it can go on top of any of your other jackets. #7
Medium Weight Coats
These are the coats for when it’s not below freezing, but you still feel like you’re freezing!
United By Blue - $188
This jacket has the weight of a lighter coat, but can keep you warm even as the temperatures continue to drop. It also has 5 pockets… do I need to say any more? I will. It’s made out of organic cotton and bison wool, both highly sustainable fabrics.
Skunk Funk - $279
Designed in Basque County and made out of ethically sourced materials, this coat will be getting you tons of compliments. The long and waterproof exterior makes it perfect for when it’s cold and the weather isn’t treating you kindly.
Prana - $159
Prana is one of our favorite companies and we love anything they do/make… especially this jacket! The asymmetrical front zipper is a refreshing design, and with the fleece-lined interior it will keep you cute and cozy!
If you live in colder parts of the country, spend a lot of times outside, or plan on taking a trip to the slopes, then these are the jackets you should check out.
Everlane - $165
If it gets super cold where you live (we’re talking single digits) then this parka is what you need. It’s long enough to cover part of your legs, the drawstring hood will keep your head warm, and the pockets are big enough to keep an extra pair of gloves in there. Bonus: you can look up the factory where these jackets were made.
United By Blue - $228
This jacket appears to be lightweight, but is far from it. It’s made out of B100 Insolation, which one of the most sustainable and innovative forms of insolation. The brand that makes this jacket is so committed to sustainability that not only are all of their products made sustainably, but they will remove one pound of trash from waterways for every product sold!
Prana - $139.30
One of the reasons this jacket will keep you warm is because of its length, which is also one of the reasons it’s so adorable! It’s insulated enough to keep you warm and thin enough that you can wear it everyday. The best part? It’s fair trade.
Cotopaxi - $250
It can sometimes be hard to look cute in a winter jacket. Okay, most of the time. But this cropped jacket keeps you warm and stylish! The responsibly sourced goose down and oversized hood protects you from single digit weather, so you can feel confident wearing this jacket even in the lowest temperatures.
All of these brands source their materials responsibly and make their products ethically. Most of these brands also have multiple styles of jackets in different weights, and have products for the whole family! What if instead of matching white shirts and khakis on the beach this year, you take your family pictures in matching winter jackets in the snow?! If you do, definitely send it to us!
