The term “quiet luxury” rose to the surface, quite audibly, in early 2023—and it’s still buzzing. Although it’s been deemed a trend in connection with the likes of Succession and Sofia Richie Grainge, its essence has been around forever and isn’t going anywhere. It’s never a bad time to invest in well-designed, long-lasting pieces that steer clear of logos, blatant signals, or flash—especially when it comes to pieces like coats. Quiet luxury is about discretion, quality, and integrity—its understated aesthetic imbues its wearer with confidence and grace. With fall jacket season in full swing and colder months fast approaching, we're looking forward to strolls through the park, seasonal parties, and the stunning ensembles and outerwear we'll be wearing through it all. Ahead, see 12 quiet luxury coats we think are worth the investment, as they're simultaneously right on trend and sure to serve you for years to come.

Stitched Together

Toteme Embroidered Scarf Jacket in dark gray melange
Toteme Embroidered Scarf Jacket $1,130.00

It’s all in the details, and this responsibly sourced wool coat is full of delightful touches: contrast stitching, slits on the sleeves, patch pockets, and an attached scarf with twists of elongated fringe. Each of these incredibly stylish details is also functional, making it worth the investment. Pair this coat with dark wash jeans and loafers for a classic yet modern look.

Eggshell Trench

Theory Oaklane Trench Coat in Admiral Crepe in rice off-white color
Theory Oaklane Trench Coat in Admiral Crepe $635.00 $476.00

The lack of visible buttons and pockets on this smooth, vanilla-toned trench coat makes for a sleek silhouette, and the collar looks as though it’s been sculpted by hand from some otherworldly fabric. This is a perfect quiet luxury coat for wearing over a silk slip dress with a pair of ballet flats.

Back in Black

The Row Cassio Coat in wool and cashmere in black
The Row Cassio Coat in Wool and Cashmere $5,650.00

The Row is a quintessential quiet luxury brand, and this menswear-inspired, mid-length textured wool coat is an investment that will make you look and feel incredible for years to come. Continue with the tailoring theme by layering this piece over slouchy trousers, leather loafers, and a crisp button-down.

Army Chic

Loro Piana Duster Coat in leaf tea green
Loro Piana Duster Coat $4,250.00

No quiet luxury list would be complete without Loro Piana—if it weren’t for the cast of Succession wearing countless pieces from the label, “quiet luxury” wouldn’t have become a household term. This coat looks vintage, and the tea leaf-inspired green shade is subtle enough to be a neutral yet stands out from the crowd. Wear this piece with anything from a mini dress and tights to loose-fitting pants and sneakers.

Carriage Ride-Ready

Wilfred The Cocoon Coat in bone off-white
Wilfred The Cocoon Coat $328.00

This Italian wool and cashmere coat is a wintry dream in off-white, and the funnel-neck silhouette both increases the warmth factor and creates an elevated look. Wear it for your fanciest cold-weather plans—or whenever you're in need of a little extra elegance.

Patron of the Arts

Tove Adut Coat in cream lambswool with black textural print
Tove Adut Coat $1,550.00

This soft lambswool coat may feature a pattern, but it's an abstract, textural one that will make a tasteful statement for years to come without feeling dated. We imagine it would look stunning over tailored pants or your favorite little black dress, plus a chic pair of leather ankle boots.

The Warm Shoulder

Dries Van Noten Waisted Wool Coat in camel
Dries Van Noten Waisted Wool Coat $1,750.00

With exaggerated broad shoulders that come to points and pin-tucked waist detailing, this coat could be the signature outerwear of the most elegant cartoon character you. know. It can be difficult to find a coat that will truly stand out on the snowy streets, and this piece does the trick—without relying on any bold colors, prints, or logos that might come and go with the trends. Wear it with a pleated midi dress, white socks, and loafers.

For a Rainy Day

Arch The Beige Oversized Trench Coat
Arch The Beige Oversized Trench Coat $540.00

A classic trench coat is a transitional season layering essential, especially when the rain just won't quit. With its concealed buttons and lack of a waist tie, this jacket is a rainy day celebration of clean lines and simplicity.

Snow Queen

If you gravitate towards all black when it comes to outerwear, this is a chic and timeless choice. The oversized yet tailored silhouette will really keep you warm (without looking at all like gear), and it's understated enough to go with pretty much anything.

Winter Warrior

Canada Goose Alliston Parka in Atlantic navy
Canada Goose Alliston Parka $1,195.00

While they may be practical, voluminous down jackets can often feel stifling, bulky, and movement-inhibiting—a.k.a. anything but luxurious. This quilted coat provides maximum warmth while still being shapely, stylish, and incredibly chic.

Robed in Warmth
