With the warmer days of 2018 numbered, there’s no time like the present to be hunting down the investment piece that’ll be keeping you cozy through the winter months. And while we recently featured some of the best affordable mid-season jackets to stave off the incoming Fall breeze, you don’t need us to tell you that a winter coat is well worth splashing out on.
Here, we’ve selected the winter jackets already available at our favorite online retailers that’ll be setting the pace for more affordable designs to drop this season. These flex-worthy coats are the ultimate investments for colder months to come, and are guaranteed to be the envy of anyone who settled for their budget equivalents.
In the selection below, you’ll see iconic fall/winter pieces from the likes of Gucci, Prada, and Craig Green, as well as the space-inspired statement coats of Heron Preston and UNDERCOVER we can’t get enough of right now. Scroll down for the low-down on each of the early 2018 winter jacket highlights, whether you’re actually planning to cop, or just here to press up your nose against the window, with insights from Highsnobiety curator Rhianna Matthews.
“For the more Astro-boys out there — this Heron Preston x NASA jacket is an absolute must-cop. The design and style are so on-trend, with the workwear and tech-wear vibes going around right now. The details are sick and the colors work perfectly — only a designer like Preston could pull this off.”
“If you’re into the whole Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat look, then this Craig Green piece is the one for you this winter. It’s really one-of-a-kind, and I think the color blocking is dope AF.”
“This one is for all the kids-at-heart who’ve always wanted to go into space. The puffer jacket directly references the iconic movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, and even has an integrated helmet with spotlights. Insane, right?”
“Every man needs a mature jacket in their winter wardrobe, and it seems Gucci has come forward with just the right one. This classy wool tweed joint is perfect for smarter occasions and will make any outfit look fly as hell. You’ll even get more bang for your buck, as this jacket is completely reversible, with a clean black finish — such a versatile piece.”
“Last but not least, your winter wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a nice leather jacket. This hand-painted piece from Prada is a real treat and can be worn with many different ’fits. You could keep it classy with a T-shirt or shirt underneath, or go for a more casual look by wearing it with a hoodie. However you choose to rock it, this jacket is fire!”
