Topping it All Off: Cold Weather Layers

Yes, you can never own too many coats – and jackets. From the favorite bomber jacket you wear with jeans to the belted cashmere duster that works with a little black dress, an outerwear wardrobe is a perpetual work in progress.

It’s no accident that coats imbued with a cocooning vibe are topping everyone’s wish list this season. Stella McCartney’s belted wool coats in bold checks are perfect for an entrance-making moment, while the V-neck belted coat COS offers in a mole-gray wool mix is all about effortless style. But for ultimate cocooning, nothing beats Max Mara’s iconic Teddy Bear coat: equal parts plush and stylish, this “It Coat” has been seen on Katie Holmes, Blake Lively and Celine Dion and is always in high demand.
