The 20 Most Iconic Coats in Movie History

21/10/2020

“What’s a coat you think about a lot?” This prompt by Twitter user Pete Anderson got team BAZAAR.com thinking about all the cinematic toppers that live in our heads rent-free. From larger-than-life furs worn by girls about town to a leopard wrap by a vaudeville star to leather trenches with attitude indicative of the ’90s, the list ran the gamut.

The way an actor gestures—a smirk, a glance—and what they are wearing while doing it can resonate for years to come. Color, material, buttons, length of the sleeves: It is the details, the little things, that help build that character. As a result, we see ourselves in their clothes, become inspired by their wardrobes, and, to varying degrees, seek to reflect their attitudes in the real world. Well, sometimes. Never underestimate someone who can look fantastic while being less than a desirable example for life.

Ahead, we’ve compiled the ultimate list of the most iconic coat looks on film—along with similar pieces you can shop now.
