The Minimalist’s Guide to Bundling Up This Winter

The Minimalist’s Guide to Bundling Up This Winter

By definition, a true minimalist doesn’t want their day-to-day wardrobes to be overly complicated.

Instead of embracing bold, multilayered ensembles, they of course tend to gravitate towards something a bit more streamlined and effortless-but that doesn’t mean they want to sacrifice style, nor should they. So when it comes to choosing outerwear that is both fashionable and functional, a minimalist may naturally gravitate towards a designer investment piece or a more affordable option that is as chic as it is practical to wear while trudging through the snow.

Enter brands like Toteme, The Row, and Lauren Manoogian, all of which have always championed sleek outerwear, like single-breasted and blanket-like wrap coats in heavy wools and luxe cashmere. Manoogian’s mushroom-color belted coat is a fine example, with its oversized lapels and cool two-toned belt. Even brands that aren’t considered “minimalist” have made sleek, easy coats that are hard to resist, like Ganni’s textured white bouclé version and Stand Studio’s buttery faux leather reversible shearling coat. Meanwhile, coats from The Frankie Shop and Theory include styles with a built-in scarf—a clever trick so that no additional accessorizing is required, only easy wintertime cocooning.

If you’re in the mood to throw on something beautiful, effortless, and insanely warm all at once, here are 15 understated yet stylish coats to satisfy your inner minimalist.
