This post: Kristy’s curated collection of bright + preppy winter coats.
A few years ago, I realized that EVERY coat + jacket I owned was either black or gray. Winter is drab enough without wearing “heavy” colors everywhere, am I right?
I slowly started replacing my winter overcoats with pieces that were white or bright – and fitted, because I don’t care for the oversized-everything trend. I ended up with four beautiful, preppy winter coats to polish off my winter wardrobe.
If you’re looking for an easy way to brighten things up this season, consider investing in a few coats that aren’t on the gray scale. Whites, pinks + jewel tones are my personal favorites.
- Navy Officer Pea Coat
- Full Length White Coat
- Blue Plaid Overcoat
- Quilted Mid-Length Jacket

I have do expensive taste, but I’m generally a frugal shopper. Everything but the navy pea coat was a thrift store find. Most of the coats recommended in this post are on sale – but before you order anything online, make sure you’re earning cashback with Honey! xo
4 Preppy Winter Coats (That Aren’t Drab)
Take a look at my current favorites below, and download the LTK app for weekly style inspiration.
Navy Officer Pea Coat
This lovely pea coat from White House Black Market is the only winter coat I paid full price for. It’s been totally worth the money – I’ve been wearing it for several years + it’s still like new!
This exact coat is longer available, but I curated similar looks here, here, and here.
Full Length White Coat
If you’re a fan of preppy winter coats, nothing makes a statement quite like a full length, white coat. I get lots of compliments on this Kate Middleton-inspired look – and no one would ever guess it’s a thrifted Old Navy coat!
I found similar looks (reasonably priced) here and here.
Blue Plaid Overcoat
What’s not to love about bright winter blues? This plaid overcoat from Old Navy is another wardrobe staple I thrifted a few years ago.
Check out this similar look from Zulily.
Quilted Mid-Length Jacket
This quilted mid-length coat from Chico’s is just the right amount of preppy + practical. The pink is sold out, but a similar style is available in pretty jewel tones here.

These coats are lovely and I do like the colors, but they would not work for those of us in a colder climate. We would call most of those jackets, not coats. It can be hard to find thick, warm, long coats in pretty colors!
You’re absolutely right – climate makes a huge difference! The navy pea coat from White House Black Market is extremely thick/warm – I can only wear it a few times a year here in north Texas. But otherwise, these are definitely coats for the southern United States.
