Buying a new winter coat can be kind of tricky. On one hand, you want something that will last, so you don't have to keep shelling out money for something that's necessary to keep you warm. But on the other, you don't want to purchase a style that's so simple it's almost boring, especially considering how often you'll wear it. Thankfully, this season has brought us a trending outerwear option that happens to be both classic and cute. It's the good ol' quilted coat — a 'grandma coat,' if you will.

I've personally come up with this nickname because, looking at quilted coats, I can't help but picture my own grandma, walking around Brooklyn with shopping bags after leaving the "beauty parlor." I vaguely remember her wearing something similar with a scarf styled around her head, which now seems very Gucci to me, but also very Queen Elizabeth, who, yes, is also a grandma.

It's practical and familiar, but also quirky and fun. It's sleeker than your average puffer, but a bit bolder than a pea coat. And, the good news is that there are so many choices to shop. You could go with a versatile olive green quilted coat, or find one with a floral print.

Ahead, see some proof that the 'grandma coat' is ready to take over winter 2021, then shop similar options to get on board.

Try Something Neutral

This way, it can go with everything, from bright colors to earth tones to your classic black and white combo.

Color Coordinate

Style your quilted coat with pieces that are part of the same color family to create a monochromatic look.

Go With a Puffer

Warm and on-trend — the best kind of combo.
