Coat season is well and truly here. And fortunately because of how the fashion seasons work, winter end-of-season sales arrive just as the weather reaches its coldest. That means that if you're struggling to keep warm, the perfect cold-weather defending outerwear has hit the sales.

It is officially time to bundle up until you're nothing but a head emerging out from under multiple layers of down, wool, and shearling. That might sound appealing, but winter coats are a tricky look to get right. Not everyone is into the extra-large silhouette, and while others eagerly await any opportunity to go big with their outerwear, some prefer a covert layering approach.

With this winter wardrobe essential on the agenda, I decided to take a hard look at some of the best winter jackets forming a list of what I consider are the best outwear options at reduced prices. Ranging from Jil Sander to Auralee, these jackets will make your winter moments a lot more warm and comfortable, while giving a few clout points for the gram. Style and functionality can come together beautifully when done right.

Check out some of this season's best winter coats on sale below.
