Winter Coats Within Your Budget

We’ll be the first to admit that our coats fashion this month in our magazine featured some significant investment pieces.


While it’s never a bad idea to invest in a quality coat that you love and will wear for years, we’re also digging several trendy options out there that won’t break the bank. After all, the thought of winter is depressing enough—you should have some fun shopping for it.

Coveting Camel
Face the slush wearing the picture of elegance: The camel coat is simultaneously timeless and of-the-now. Calvin Klein Long Sleeve Seamed Walker Coat (pictured above), on sale for $194.99, Macy’s

Color Pop
A red coat with ruffles is feminine and playful—the perfect way to stand out on snowy days. Guess Wool Ruffle-hem Coat, on sale for $129, Victoria’s Secret

Military Maven
Tough yet chic, this coat cuts a sharp silhouette amidst puffy parkas. Mao Collar Coat, $229, Zara

Pea Suiter
A cold weather mainstay, the black peacoat is the ultimate in functional simplicity, especially when it comes with a hood. DKNY Hooded Peacoat, on sale for $129.90, Nordstrom

Gray Days
Bored with black? Go for a light neutral instead. We like the dove gray of this elegantly draped coat. Double-faced Wool Pamela Coat, $225, Banana Republic

Fabulous Faux

The faux fur revolution continues. Shearling and a fur-trimmed hood put a twist on a sporty duffle coat. Via Spiga Gina Faux-fur Duffle Jacket, $275, Bloomingdales

All Puffed Up
The traditional puffer becomes less puffy (but no less warm) with toggle details and a tie belt to cinch the waist. Esprit Quilted Puffer Jacket, $79.99, Burlington Coat Factory

Mad for Plaid
Pick a peacoat with pattern, like this trendy hombre plaid, to add western flare to a city staple. Miss Sixty Plaid Skirted Peacoat, on sale for $99.90, Nordstrom

Caped Crusader
Though not for everyone, a cape is a fun way to play with volume and looks charming worn over slim pants or a shorter skirt and wool tights. Everything-In-Place Cape, $198, Anthropologie
