Orolay Thickened Down Coat
Not only is this Orolay down coat beloved by Amazon shoppers and InStyle editors alike, but it has also earned Oprah's seal of approval. It's easy to see why it's so popular.. Along with being super warm and stylish, the topper has six spacious pockets that are big enough to hold more than just the essentials. What's more, it also has a handy feature that lets you expand the jacket to make room for more layers underneath.

Calvin Klein Printed Puffer Jacket
A cute puffer jacket is a must-have item for everyone's winter wardrobe, and this Calvin Klein option is at the top of our list. In addition to being waterproof, the polyester-filled coat comes with a warm hood that is removable, so you can customize your look. Even better, it's machine-washable for added convenience.

Columbia Caron Pass LI Jacket
When it comes to winter coats, this Columbia style is worth the splurge. The coat's Omni-heat reflective lining and fleece collar work together to trap in heat, while the removable faux fur trim adds a luxurious touch. We love that the coat comes with a belt at the waist to help show off your silhouette, unlike most cold-weather jackets, which tend to be boxy and shapeless. "I've had this jacket for several years, and it looks like [it's] new still," wrote one shopper. "It is durable, flattering, warm, and I love the number of pockets both inside and outside that it has. It looks so nice, and I can be outside in high 30s weather wearing only this jacket and a thin long sleeve T-shirt."

Amazon Essentials Full-Zip Fleece Jacket
This zip-up fleece jacket from Amazon Essentials has earned a spot on our list because it's simply so versatile. You can wear it on its own as you transition from fall to winter, and even use it as a base layer under a heavier coat once the temperatures drop even further. It comes in six fashion-forward color combinations and ranges in size from XS to XXL. "I absolutely love this jacket! It is cuddly and soft — and it feels soft on the inside, too," raved one customer.

Orolay Ultra-Short Puffer Coat
Bundling up just got a whole lot cuter thanks to this short Orolay puffer coat. We love how modern the cropped silhouette looks and how cozy the down filling is. The jacket features a stand-up collar to keep your neck warm and elastic cuffs to prevent wind from getting inside the jacket. The water-resistant fabric will keep you dry if you get caught in a rain or snowstorm too, and the zippered pockets will keep your belongings safe and secure.

Carhartt Active Jacket
While this Carhartt style is technically a men's jacket, its simple unisex design makes it a great option for just about anyone on your holiday shopping list. The machine-washable coat has an attached hood, roomy front pockets, and a zip-up closure. Though it looks lightweight, it's actually lined with 80 grams of Thinsulate insulation, so it will keep you super warm.

Blank NYC Drop Shoulder Quilted Jacket
If you're looking for a quilted jacket that's not bulky and easy to layer, check out this Blank NYC option. The trendy basic features a high collar and drop shoulders for a cool slouchy fit. Shoppers love how soft and comfortable the topper is and the fact that there are 13 styles to choose from ranging, including classic solid colors and fun animal printed designs. A few customers mentioned it can run big and recommended sizing down if you prefer a more fitted look.
