As we get deeper in the colder months of the year, we are starting to turn to our favorite coats of the season. Its the most wonderful time of the year where we revolve our outfits around the long trench coat or stylist peacoat. Whether you are dressing for brisk and breezy days or frigid snowy ones, having a stylish yet sustainable option in your wardrobe is key this winter season. No need to worry much, as we have placed together a list of our top picks and why turning towards a more earth conscious option for your favorite winter coat is the way to go!
Shopping for your winter coat can be stressful enough, let alone adding the aspect of sustainable picks. When you purchase an ethical piece of clothing, no matter what it is, you are doing your part in being earth conscious. Reducing your human impact on the environment by dimensioning your carbon footprint by not having to purchase a new coat each and every season. Sustainable pieces are long lasting and are made to stay with you through those tough winters. This is a result of the eco-friendly materials and clean manufacturing. When you are purchasing fast fashion or non-sustainable pieces, you are buying an item that is honestly meant to last that season. Even if having your favorite material composition as a factor, the advanced technology for the production of sustainable pieces allows for anything to be possible. With that being said, no matter what your preference may be when choosing your go-to coat, here at Verte Mode, we have a pick or picks just right for you.

Sticking to the long style of coats, the Tanzen Extra Long Patterned Coat also from Zerobarracento falls next. Those who are gravitated to pattern pieces that elevate their wardrobe, this coat is for you.

Juban Formal Belted Kimono- ZEROBARRACENTO
Zerobarracentos Juban Formal Belted Kimono is a perfect take on the traditional Kimono and is fifth on our list of must-have winter coats.

Alex Trench Coat-ZEROBARRACENTO
Rather than a long trench, the Alex Trench Coat from Zerobarracento is my personal addition to this list. Available in black and gray, this coat is composed of recycled materials and 60% GRS certified Re.VerSo. Which simplified is a renovated way of the production process that allows for technology and science to create high quality materials. This includes wool and cashmere. A truly timeless piece for the chilly winter season.
Michiyuki Midi Coat- ZEROBARRACENTO
Another classic piece from Zerobarracento, the Michiyuki Midi Coat is the perfect blend between a traditional trench coat and a petticoat. The midi coat is composed of sustainable wool and polyester, once again a product of Re.VerSo. The structure is built to have a frontal closure with a squared collar, different from what we have previously mentioned. Different from other variations of the midi coat, this piece has a semi rigid collar and wide volume pockets located in the front and back. A perfect coat with so much to offer.
Vilnius Mid-Length Linen Coat- Amour Linen
Think of a breezy but cold day where you just want a piece that is light but still offers you that coat feel. The Vilnius Mid-Length Linen Coat from Amour Linen is ideal. Opposite from a thick petticoat or trench coat, this coat allows for breathable movement. Available in 13 stylist colors perfect for each and every consumer, this linen coat has been created from 100% European certified linen. Because of the stone washed during production, this gives the coat an ultra soft feel that you are bound to adore.
Tsukesage Fluid Blazer- ZEROBARRACENTO
Final on our list is the Tsukesage Fluid Blazer from Zerobarracento. While this piece is labeled as a blazer, it gives everything a coat would and more. Available in lilac gray and olive, this blazer is composed of organic & mulesing free wool, which is all GOTS certified. GOTS, also known as the Global Organic Textile Standard. Of which is a certification that is known by all major markets. Oversized fit and hangs down to the waistline, this piece is a beautiful wool blazer that would be an amazing addition to your winter collection.
