If this year’s most persistent coat trend has taught us anything, it’s that all good things make a comeback—and grandma always knows best.
Sure, the quilted jacket has been around forever, but what was once relegated for the preppy or geriatric street style icons has now made its mark mainstream. Formerly (and exclusively) paired with monogrammed L.L. Bean canvas totes and Hunter Wellingtons—or well-loved, well-cushioned Allbirds—it is now an editor-approved staple. It’s equal parts a practical and aesthetic choice; think granny meets Scandi meets cold-weather chic. Keep it minimalist or dare to go bold; keep it classic or interpret the trend with abandon. Whatever your preference, there’s a quilted jacket meant for you.
Ahead are our favorite picks for the season—go forth and make your Nana proud.
