Hello from chilly Chicago! It’s no secret that it gets cold here, so I thought it would be fun to share my 5 favorite petite winter coats. Why 5? Well, Chicago winters cover a WIDE range of temperatures. In December alone, we could see 50 degrees or -5 degrees!
Since I’ve been living through cold winters my whole life, I’ve learned that it’s okay for me to invest in different coats to get me through the varying severity that this season brings.
So today I’m talking through petite winter coats for women – but don’t close this tab if you’re taller than me! (I’m 5’2″!) You can always toggle over to the regular or tall sizing options for all of these. These suggestions aren’t only for my fellow short gals!
Petite Winter Coats for Women
My favorite coat for 45-55 degrees
I have been wanting a chic camel coat for a while now and this one won me over with it’s petite sizing. I got a petite small and it fits perfectly – and there’s room for sweaters underneath, too! It’s not the warmest coat ever, but I didn’t really expect it to be.
I’ll wear it on mild winter days, or on fancy nights out when I’m going directly from a car to a restaurant or show. I got a petite small.
Also, if you’re looking for the most comfortable booties on the planet, THESE ARE IT. I’ve had them for a few years now and they are my absolute favorite. They feel like you’re wearing socks – but with a boost. They’re the best.
My favorite coat for 35-45 degrees
I had been swooning over this coat since my Mom got it last year – and I’m so glad I got it for myself! It’s not the warmest puffer, but it’s perfect for mild winter days. Plus the high collar helps block out wind really well! I tried on a petite small and a regular small and I went with the regular one for length. I just have to roll the sleeves a little. No big deal!
My favorite coat for 25-35 degrees
I got this wool coat two years ago, but this year’s version is just as good! It comes in 4 colors and in classic, petite, and tall sizing. I got a petite 2 and it’s a little oversized, which I love for layering. The stadium-cloth wool material is really warm (without being too bulky) and it also has quilted lining inside for extra warmth. Biiiiig fan of this one.
My favorite coat for 10-25 degrees
I just got this puffer recently and I am in looove. First, it feels SO MUCH more expensive than it is. It retails for $200 but the quality and style feels like it could be much more. It’s very warm, on par with the last jacket on this list, and I love that the belt cinches in your waist.
If my exact one is sold out, this one is VERY similar too!
My favorite coat for 10 degrees and below
If you are always cold or just simply in the market for the warmest possible coat for polar vortex temps, I got an older version this down parka a few years ago and it’s SO warm. The biggest selling point is that it has 550 fill power and the insulation will protect against temperatures as low as -4 degrees. I got an XS!
