13 Times Selena Gomez's Winter Coats Made Us Say "Wow, That Looks So Freakin' Cozy"
For many parts of the country, the weather this winter has been downright awful. Snowstorms, freezing temperatures, biting winds — and that's really just the tip of the iceberg (something of which, we're assuming, is currently forming on our roofs as we speak). With each chilly day comes another search for the warmest coat ever, which can hopefully shield us from the elements and allow us to get through the day without chattering teeth.
But while we've already discovered a handful of highly-rated options through our own research, it seems Selena Gomez also knows where to look. For months, the actress, singer, and beauty mogul has been spotted in NYC wearing the coziest-looking coats. And whether she's wearing something oversized and fuzzy for her Hulu show, Only Murders in the Building, or a practical, everyday parka, our thoughts are the same: Where did she get that?!
Our winter coat envy eventually inspired us to do some digging and pin down Gomez's exact styles or eerily similar options. Ahead, we'll take you through her latest and greatest outerwear, while sharing some tips for how to style each.
The Robe Coat
This oversized, faux fur Proenza Schouler coat is essentially a glamorous, wearable blanket. Gomez wore it on set while filming Only Murders in the Building, and since the show's costume designer used specific colors as symbolism last season, it's possible that specific shade of green is a hint of some sort. Either way, it really pops against Gomez's black trousers and chunky boots.

The Eye-Catching Pattern
UGG boots are a winter staple, but it's time to embrace the brand's coats, too. On top blocking the wind, this mid-length puffer will bring a playful element to your basic winter look. And, judging from the scarf and sweater Gomez paired with it, is roomy enough for extra layers, too.

The Matchy-Matchy Look
If your plans for the day involve outdoor activities, it's possible you'll want winter accessories to amp up your look, including a scarf and gloves. Take a tip from Gomez and go the monochromatic route, making sure these tiny extras fall within the same color family as coat. It's an eye-catching choice, even if everything is neutral rather than bright.

At first glance, this coat may look like an average black winter parka (a versatile choice to begin with), but in reality it's so much more. This particular option includes a battery-powered heating system, which has three different settings and is said to last for up to 10 hours.

Well, it looks like Jennifer Lopez isn't the only style icon bringing back the poncho trend. Selena Gomez is also on board — or at least her character Mabel is, since this glam Donna Karan option is part of her costume.

The Faux Fur
While momentarily distracted by Gomez's pup, our eyes eventually focused on the star's faux fur coat from UGG. Clearly it's a comfy, cozy pick that works well with loungewear, but if you're headed somewhere formal, like a wedding or a nice dinner, it would look extra glam styled with a dress or leather pants.

The Sleek and Simple
It's always a pleasant surprise to spot celebrities wearing budget-friendly mall brands, and while Gomez's Zara coat is long sold out, similar styles are still available. This cream color will surely stand out among winter's go-to shades of black and gray.

The Classic Camel
It's possible that Gomez has a thing for camel coats, but we completely understand. The neutral brown shade means these coats are extremely versatile, whether you're styling them over a work suit or with a mini skirt and knee-high boots, just like Gomez did for a New York Knicks game.

The Teddy Coat
The teddy coat trend is still going strong — and it's easy to see why. The fuzzy material ensures these babies are just as cozy as your favorite fleece, and the texture instantly adds interest to your outfit. In early 2021, Gomez showed us the schoolcore way to wear one, completing her look with a plaid skirt, knit top, and tights.

The Timeless Option
We love our quilted coats, teddy coats, faux fur, and other statement-making styles, but we'll always make room in our closet for a long, black overcoat. This classic style is effortlessly elegant and works for everyday wear. Plus, as Gomez demonstrates, it's the perfect addition to an all-black outfit.

The Pajama-Like Design
The cold winter weather can make it pretty tough to roll out of bed and get dressed for the day, but not to worry: the duvet coat is the smart alternative to cuddling up under the covers. It's still warm and toasty like your favorite comforter, but a bit more socially acceptable (and perfect for pairing with sweats). Selena Gomez's Free People version is sadly sold out, but a similar vibe can be achieved with an oversized quilted design.

The Bright Choice
Another fuzzy Gomez-approved choice, but this time, it's all about that vibrant, in-your-face shade. While the costume designer for Only Murders in the Building had a specific reason for dressing Mabel in marigold, many fashion fans will enjoy the liveliness of the color, and find it's just as easy to style as a basic brown.

The Fierce and Fuzzy
Styled with round sunglasses and plaid pants, Gomez's bright orange faux fur coat gives off a '70s vibe — an aesthetic that's big for 2022. We'll continue to follow her lead, scooping up a similar design to add to our rotation.
