Sigh. Here we are again. The dreaded Canadian winter season quickly approaches and the temperature level begins its inevitable descent to, you know, Arctic. To keep you warm (and stylish, obvs) all season long, here are our top 10 outerwear picks for staying hot while the weather’s cold. So, until around June, probably. Happy shopping!

1. Stand out from the multitude of basic black in a red-hot duffle coat from Urban Outfitters. $129.00

2. Cozy up in this beige wool number from Zara with an oversize wraparound collar. $139.00

3. A Canadian winter wouldn’t be complete without a Canada Goose parka. Go classic Canadiana in this quilted down Solaris from $675.00

4. Nor would it without a Roots coat for that matter. We like this short and cute Hooded Fleece Bomber in blue iris. $128.00

5. Channel your inner Kate Middleton (right like as if you don’t want to) and choose a slim, tailored silhouette from local Toronto brand Smythe. This Herringbone Midi Coat in charcoal is $982.71

6. To Montreal’s darling outerwear brand Mackage, a coat is an integral element of fashion. In winter especially, your coat isn’t just part of your outfit – it is your outfit (they’re from Quebec, so I think we can take they’re word for it). The Ashley Coat is our favourite. $620.00

7. This Textured Peter Pan Swing Coat in powder pink almost makes us want to run out and embrace the coming snow with the kind of exuberance only found in kids. Almost. We’ll settle for just looking the part. $150.00

8. You can never go wrong with a classic fitted wool coat in navy or camel, like this Eden Coat from Vancouver-based brand Dace. $350.00

9. Soldier through the chilly months with this utility parka in army green from H&M. $79.95

10. Aritzia’s full-length Wilfred Regent Coat will keep you toasty from top to bottom. $425.00
