With half the country mired in below-50-degree weather, it's time to accept the inevitable: Winter is right around the corner. The good news is that coats are putting in work this season. Big trends include round shoulders, old-man tweeds, shearling collars, sporty bomber jackets, and even toppers that accept you have a waist, such as tie-wrapped styles or fit-and-flare cuts. And then, of course, there are plenty of puffers for when it's so cold you just want to burrow in a sleeping bag while walking.
