Fall is here—even if it doesn’t feel like it outside just yet—and that means that it’s officially about to be coat season. And because I consider myself to be something of a jacket-and-coat expert, I’ve figured out precisely what style I’m into this season: wrap coats.
These types of coats are historically made from thicker fabrics like wool or cashmere, but modern iterations can be made from a puffier material, too. There are even versions that are fashioned from a plush teddy material for added warmth.
Whichever fabrication you choose, it all comes down to the shape. Wrap coats are often less structured in the shoulders, have a looser fit throughout, and feature a belt made from the same material as the rest of the piece that you can just tie in a knot before heading out the door.
In order to help you find your new favorite coat, I’ve taken the liberty of rounding up the best wrap coats below.
