As we near the end of October, we are getting into winter territory. I wish it wasn’t so, but there’s no denying that you need more and more layers when you head outside. A winter coat is a tricky but important piece to buy.
Since you’ll be wearing it everyday (and in all many different situations) you want something good quality that goes with most of your wardrobe. Jackets can be quite expensive, but you can still get great value by choosing something you’ll wear for multiple years. Another great option if you’re on a limited budget is to shop second hand, since there are amazing pieces arriving at stores like Value Village and Salvation Army daily!
Check out our top styles and list of the best winter coats at any price:
$= Under $100, $$= $100-$160, $$$ = $160-$250
This classic sailor style has been popular since the 1800’s and isn’t going anywhere. It’s a safe bet for men and women, and normally made of wool to keep you nice and toasty all winter.
Oversized is very in style this season, so take advantage of the cozy silhouette that also gives you the ability to layer easily for those colder days.
Show off a slender waist or give a bulkier piece some shape by choosing a belted option.
The athleisure trend has brought the puffy coat into the fashion mainstream. These will keep you nice and warm all season long, and many styles even pack up small for traveling.
No doubt this is the “it” coat of 2016! They come in a variety of materials and shapes, so you have many options if you choose to rock the bomber trend this winter.
