Whether it’s a tried-and-true traditional camel coat or more of a statement-maker like this red one from Reiss or Shoreditch Ski Club’s oversized shearling jacket, great outerwear is a must-have in any winter wardrobe. The best ones are often quite an investment, yes, but worth it as long as you make a wise choice. 

How to choose the right one? This all comes to what it is you need. On the hunt for an elevated basic? Look no further than Max Mara’s “Poldo” coat. With notched lapels and a self-tie belt, this camel coat (also available in equally-as-chic black) is a timeless choice. If you want all of the above but at a more approachable price point, check out this option from Mercer Collective. If the weather is especially wintry, you might want to cozy up in a shearling coat from Shoreditch Ski Club, Mackage, or Gorski. Or maybe it’s one with a slightly “cool” element to it that you want, and in that case, this reversible (!) leather + shearling combo coat is the winner. 

Winter is headed our way (it’s a slow start in Texas!) so now’s the perfect time to shop for new outerwear. No matter what kind of coat you need in your wardrobe, Saks is where you’ll find it. They have the best selection and at so many different price points, too.  Below, a shopping list with the best ones to get you started.
