Winter doesn’t officially commence until late December, but I already have my eye on some stunning winter coats. Living in Canada, you’re pretty much forced to pick out a winter jacket months before the season starts. This year we’ve been pretty lucky with the weather, having temperatures in the mid-teens until late November, but the blustery chill is bound to hit at some point, and I’ll be ready.

Form, function and style come together in toppers that not only look great, but are warm as heck. The temperatures in the Great White North don’t go unnoticed, and designers have made it their mission to ensure we’re warm on the bitterest days. With features such as cozy down, leather sleeves and outer shells that are made to combat the harshest winter elements, there are plenty of coats to choose from when the temperature plummets (way) below zero.

From a wool/cashmere blend coat to 3-in-1 parka, take a look at 5 winter jackets we’re eyeing now.

Mackage Cynthia-F5 Lux Down Parka with Leather Sleeves

The Montreal-grown brand, Mackage has become known for their ultra-warm, and very chic winter coats. The Cynthia-F5 boasts leather sleeves, a fur trimmed hood and three different colours to choose from. Getting you through the season with 90% down, this parka will keep you comfortably warm even when the temperature hits negative 35 degrees. If it’s colder than that, you might as well just stay inside.

Jillian Harris for Privilege Shannon Coat

Just looking at this coat makes me feel warm and cozy! The soft grey colour is gorgeous for winter and the contrast white collar makes a chic, eye-catching statement. Oh, and the extra big pockets, swoon.

Patagonia Vosque 3-in-1 Parka

Admired for their commitment to the outdoorsy types, Patagonia knows what goes into a well-made coat. Their Vosque 3-in-1 parka offers three different styles: wear the shell with the zip out, or wear each on their own. The shell is both waterproof and windproof, and the parka is Thermogreen-insulated for extra warmth. The snap on hood and on seam handwarmer pockets are pretty great too.

Wilfred Borda Coat

Artizia never fails to bring out the best come wintertime. Their coat collection is minimalist meets classy in the trendiest way. Opt for this belted number – a combination of wool and cashmere with a vegan suede interlining to block the wind and chill. It also has an oversized hood to protect you from the harshest winter elements.

SOIA & KYO Belted Pillow Collar Down Jacket

The classic puffer coat gets a stylish makeover with this leather-belted number. 90% down and lined for extra warmth, this coat will get you very comfortably through the season. The sizable pillow collar also offers significant wind protection.
