Coats From Coast To Coast

-SLH West Coast Fashion Editor: 

Winter has definitely made itself known this year. Check any weather app from anywhere in the continental US and you’ve got a range of everything from cold rain to freezing snow.

Here at SLH our intrepid editors have scoured the fashion world for the best winter coats to keep you toasty but not toasted. Based on where you are, we’ve got the perfect fit for you.


Temperature : 50° to 32°

Location : Mostly Mid and Southern Coastal Regions

What You’re Dealing With : Mild by comparison to other winter areas, the temperatures can get down to freezing (usually at night). Cold rain with wind is the major factor to protect yourself from here.

Temperature : 25° to -25°

Location : Mostly Mid to Northern Regions

What You’re Dealing With : Snow, slush and ice are the mainstay. With temperatures dipping into the negatives it’s a good idea to minimize skin’s exposure for periods longer than 30 minutes.

Temperature : 10° to -40°

What You’re Dealing With : Simply put, it’s too cold to function for long periods of time outside. Keeping your skin covered is a must in temperatures this low. Every bit of body heat should be captured to keep your core protected.

    • Hi Rosalie,
      ShopLikeHer’s editors review and write about the latest trends in fashion, beauty and accessories. If there is a specific product we really like, we post links so that our readers can find the merchants selling those products.
      If you see something you like, click on the “Shop This Look” links directly below the product pic (we usually include the merchant’s product name, for example “Marc Jacobs Lollipop Necklace” which would then contain the hyperlink going to that particular product on the merchant’s site).
      If for some reason the merchant has changed their specific product page, we will redirect you to our Search result page. There we offer items similar to what you were looking at (again based on information the merchant has given us) so that you have other options.
      Any products you see on our site are purchased through their respective merchant sites, so if you have issues, concerns or simply don’t like the product, you should follow the merchant’s return policy.
      Thanks so much for writing in Rosalie!
