For bundling up, the waterproof, down-filled Laney Triclimate Coat is a useful all-purpose winter coat ideal for skating, biking, pairing with a scarf for work, and generally tailoring to the weather.

This mid-thigh length jacket comes in an array of colors and pairs well with jeans, dresses and skirts, so it’s an investment in versatility as well as practical warmth for winter. Side snaps enable you to tweak the coat’s silhouette, and the collar is adjustable too. Check it out at

Bring on the snow!
