Cold weather’s coming, which signals the return of the coat. Whether last year’s coat is the wrong size this year or just doesn’t feel “you” anymore, it may be time to start shopping around for a new one. Fortunately, investing in a new winter coat doesn’t have to come at a steep price. There are plenty of warm, stylish coats for winter available at bargain prices. Take a look at this list of women’s winter coats; each is priced at $100 or less, but still make staying warm a stylish statement.
Jessica Simpson Women’s Puff Sleeve Coat – Overstock, $56.99
Feminine details like ruffles and puffy sleeves are in fashion this season, as are neutral shades. This wool-blend coat from Jessica Simpson hits the nail on both trends. Available in camel and black, this coat makes “basic” a little more interesting with thick seams, oversized buttons and a slightly belled sleeve. The relaxed shape of the coat seems to invite wear with winter’s chunky sweaters and layers.
Route 66 Women’s Button Front Wool Military Coat – Kmart, $79.99
This coat features several on-trend military details. The stand-up collar buttons closed, keeping out cold air all the way down the double-breasted placket. Buttoned epaulets on the shoulders and button-closure sleeves keep the look straight and strict. The waist hits high, below an empire style but above the natural waist. This means the figure-hugging components hit above the belly, making this a comfortable and flattering choice for apple shapes.
AK Anne Klein Women’s Double-Breasted Wool Coat – Overstock, $66.99
The classic peacoat has been redone so many times, especially as the coat du jour of the last decade. Anne Klein’s take on the peacoat is a little more interesting than the basic version, however. First and foremost, this coat features a button closure at the collar, swept to the side in keeping with the double-breasted button placket. A buckled belt adds a chic touch, especially over tie-belt peacoats with belt ends that inevitably stick out. This coat is available in black, charcoal gray, and a warm red for color junkies.
DKNY Women’s Down Hooded Anorak Jacket – Overstock, $66.99
Nothing keeps you warm and dry in the winter like an anorak or parka. This toned-down option from DKNY is lined with feathers and down, adding insulating warmth without a lot of bulk. The faux fur-trimmed hood zips off for easy cleaning or removal on warmer days, and the front pockets button closed to keep out moisture. Available in brown, black and white, this is an ideal coat for rain and snow.
Merona Long Wool Coat – Target, $59.99
This classic, knee-length wool coat from Target features an open lapel collar and button closure. The short button placket gives an empire waist shape, leading to a swingy shape from the waist down. The overall look is a tailored silhouette, with side pockets keeping the side lines clean. The coat linked above is in charcoal gray, but the same style is also available in a range of other neutral shades.
White Rivet Single Breasted Wool Coat – Kmart, $90.00
This single-breasted wool coat blends this winter’s military inspiration at the shoulders with the understated ruffle details currently in style along the bottom. The plum-fuchsia color makes this an ideal coat for women who love bright colors and standing out in a sea of basic neutral coats. This could easily be thrown over your LBD for the holiday season’s parties, or worn for a pop of cheery color on winter’s grayest days.
