Tis’ the Season to be chilly, and it’s time to dig out those coats and jackets, dust them off, and layer up. Here at Glam Soldier, a boho and vintage boutique in downtown Apex, North Carolina, jackets are kind of our thing! And we've got you covered - we believe you never have to sacrifice style for warmth. With the right outerwear, you can have both, like a one-of-a-kind jacket that makes a bold statement from Glam Soldier’s special collection.
Depending on the climate where you live, you may need a selection of lighter jackets (for warmer winter days and fall) and heavy-duty outerwear (when temperatures plummet), to get you through.
So here are seven must-have jackets and coats – ‘cos baby it’s cold outside!
7. Fleece or Hoodie
Everyone should own a fleece and/or a hoodie. While not the height of fashion, these are practical and warm for every day, easy to throw on, and lightweight enough to roll up and stick in a bag. They’re great for hiking and dashing to the store. Check out this sweet hooded crochet sweater jacket in ivory or rust.
6. Denim and Corduroy
The iconic denim jacket is here to stay, and you can wear it most seasons, unless you live in the frozen north. They’re versatile and come in a variety of colors and styles, from the classic look to blazers and long shirt jackets. Check out some of our cool denim and corduroy collection, from our black, tie dye fringe detail rock and roll jacket to soft cropped pink corduroy.
5. Puffer Jacket
Where fashion and function meet, and hiking gear comes to the Highstreet! These coats are warm, practical, lightweight and they squash into a little ball, so are perfect for traveling.They’re cute, stylish, and flattering and come in a variety of styles, lengths, and colors. Check out this incredibly soft and cuddly Black Cosmic Quilted Jacket.
4. Long Wool Coat
A tailored wool coat is a must-have for all wardrobes. You can either stick with all black or choose navy, grey, camel colored or cream. Belted or buttoned, which one will suit you best depends on your taste, height, and shape. This should be your go-to coat for any formal occasion like an interview or winter wedding.

Trench coats are practical, flattering and will never go out of style plus they're a fantastic investment. They come in various lengths and colors – like this corduroy trench beauty at Glam Soldier!
2. Waterproof Jackets/Coats
A waterproof jacket or coat is an essential item for all climates. From functional and fashionable lightweight trench rain jackets to waterproof and windproof hooded parka jackets, there are plenty of styles to choose from. If you’re planning to hit the slopes this season, or are an avid hiker, there are numerous durable gore-tex ski jackets to choose from.
