Try as we might to convince ourselves otherwise, there’s no denying it—winter is officially here. But the nip in the air doesn’t need to put a frown on your face as long as you’re properly attired. No one knows better than our team how to master the elements while still staying stylish, so we tapped them for their picks of the season’s best chill-beating outerwear. From parkas to puffers, scroll on to see how this fashionable flock will be staying toasty all winter long, and then head to Barneys to put a fresh coat on your outerwear game.

“I’m obsessed with the new Ukranian coat brand Ienki Ienki. I bought the black version of this shorter style, and I have been wearing it every day since. It’s so light and warm. I tend to wear lots of feminine dresses and print, so the where the length of this coat lands makes any look much cooler and unique.”

“This field jacket from Zegna is a beautiful cognac brown that will complement any shade of grey or navy. The fact that it is made of nubuck means that it can take a beating, will gain character with age, and last forever.”

“Living in New York, you have to be prepared to go from casual to dressed-up, hot to cold, or work to play at anytime, and this coat does it effortlessly. Part of our covetable Barneys New York collection, it’s the perfect length for any outfit and can be worn with jeans as easily as with a cocktail dress. The mink collar is the icing on the cake.”

“Borrowing from technical outerwear is what it’s all about right now, and Martine Rose has done it best with this articulated, slightly oversized puffer vest. I’ll be wearing it to keep warm while I sip a coffee outside a Parisian café come January.”

“I own a chic tonal, black-on-black Mr & Mrs Italy mini-parka, which got me through the blustery New York months of December through March last year. These coats are incredibly warm and versatile. My must-have this season is the slightly longer midi parka in classic fatigue with the gorgeous white fox collar and leopard printed mink lining, perfect when paired back to my wardrobe staple of denim.”

Loro Piana is known for taking staple pieces and making them super luxe—this is your standard issue trucker jacket, but updated in a wool-cashmere exterior and a shearling lining. It’s perfect with a tee shirt and jeans or with a more dressy sweater and trousers.”

Military style always pulls a look together in a modern-but-retro way. This Barneys New York cavalry twill will be my go-to staple to take on and enjoy winter.”

“XO—Our very own. Why this particular coat? Dressed up or down, this coat is versatile enough to wear over a suit or over a turtle neck for the weekend. Plus, with its 100% cashmere water-resistant shell and down filling, it will keep you warm without being puffy.”

“I know I can depend on Mr & Mrs Italy coats to take me through New York winters. I like wearing dresses and silk blouses all year round, so even with the thinnest layers underneath, this coat keeps me warm. The midi length is perfect, and the neutral tones infused with pink give it the perfect touch of softness and chic.”
