The weather may be (almost disturbingly) warm this winter, but there have certainly been cold days – and there will be more to come. Pea coats, trenches, and other more formal styles simply won’t cut it when you’re going toe to toe with Jack Frost. For that reason, the shape of the season is none other than the fur-trimmed anorak. Casual and easy, it’s the perfect everyday go-to, with the ideal blend of comfort and sophistication.
Barneys Fur-Trimmed Hooded Anorak: A detachable fur hood makes this a great transitional coat, taking you from fall to winter and back again into spring. Exclusively at Barneys New York for $795.
1 Madison Expedition Faux Fur Trim Parka: It’s easy to rationalize spending big on an item you’ll wear all season long, year after year, but if you don’t have to, then why do it? At Nordstrom for $159.90 (from $288).
Moncler Black Down Ariette Coat: With a feminine, cinched-in waist and subtly flowing train, this is the kind of anorak that dress and skirt-loving Snobs should invest in. On Ssense for $2,215.
Lauren Ralph Lauren Faux Fur Trim Tweed Print Anorak with Down and Feather Fill: If you live somewhere with weather not unlike that of the North Pole, then a fur collar alone won’t keep you toasty. Forget maintaining a slim profile this time of year; a puffy, insulated coat is a must. At Nordstrom for $239.90 (from $320).
DKNY Faux Fur Trim Anorak: The slightly longer silhouette of an anorak ensures whipping wind doesn’t push up through your shirt, but for short girls, there’s a fine line between staying warm and drowning in fabric. If you’re worried about the fit, pick up a petite-specific design. At Nordstrom for $149.90 (from $228).
