For many of us, the drop in temperature means ditching all of the rules of fashion we fastidiously abided by for most of the year. Instead, we grab for something lumpy and misshapen that’s been hiding in the back of the closet since last winter, because staying warm triumphs over looking cool. Not this year. This season, we did our research and consulted some of the city’s fashion experts to compile the following list of winter coats for all occasions that are as functional as they are stylish.

The Lowdown: “I recently was on the hunt for a beautiful velvet jacket for the holiday season coming up. I landed on this fabulous, black velvet smoking jacket from J.Crew. You can dress it up for an evening out, or you can dress it down for a casual coffee date with friends. Just because it is fancy jacket doesn’t mean you have to wear it for a special occasion. I love getting the most out of my wardrobe.” – Jack Savoie
“J.Crew has such great sales on coats.” – Abby Miller, creator of Denver Darling
