When you’re preparing your wardrobe for the winter, layering is the name of the game. Dressing for the coldest months of the year requires striking the right balance between styles that will keep you warm and flatter your figure. That goes double for an investment piece like your winter coat. And it seems difficult to accomplish if you don’t have lots of wiggle room in your budget to shop for a warm but stylish coat.
But this winter, you don’t have to break the bank to get a coat that will keep you warm and stylish on the coldest days of the year. We’ve scouted out some great deals for you, and selected some great coats that will work with a wide variety of personal styles. Check out our top picks for stylish winter coats that come in under $100.
1. Utility parka: $49.99
If you need a water-resistant coat for the cold months ahead, you can’t go wrong with a warm but sleek utility parka. Mossimo’s version features a flattering drawstring waistband that helps you get the perfect fit. It also has a removable faux fur hood, which gives you the best of both worlds if you need both style and practicality.
2. Double-breasted peacoat: $37.90
A peacoat is always a great choice for the fall and winter. It’s classic and easy to wear. And whether your style is modern and minimal or preppy and menswear-inspired, the peacoat is a perfect choice. This Thread & Supply peacoat is an affordable take on the style. We particularly like the camel colorway, which gives you two classic winter coats in one.
3. Wrap coat: $59.99
A long wrap coat is a cozy layer that works whether you’re headed to the office, running Saturday morning errands, or on your way to one of the (many) holiday parties on your social calendar. The Who What Wear wrap coat is simply cut and generously sized, which makes it perfect for layering over all of your favorite cold-weather pieces.
4. Puffer wrap jacket: $59.99
Puffer jackets are notorious for being more about function than form. That comes in handy when you live in a particularly cold climate. But if you want something that places a little more emphasis on style, try Mossimo’s puffer wrap jacket. This style features a collar that can be worn up or down, plus a belt that keeps the style flattering.
5. Canvas anorak: $69
Cotton jackets are perfect layering pieces, especially in warmer climates that won’t get really cold until the new year. BP’s cotton canvas anorak is a perfect example of a rugged style with perennial appeal. This cotton style is a great jacket if you love pockets, or if you’re looking for a layer that will be useful during the transition from autumn to winter and even into spring.
6. Puffer jacket: $69.99
A puffer jacket is a sporty necessity if you live in a particularly cold area. AQUA’s puffer jacket is not only short and stylish, but also features a much more budget-friendly price tag than many other down-filled styles. It features a chic stand collar, plus zip pockets and quilted detailing. It also includes a travel pouch, which you can store the jacket in when you’re traveling.
7. Faux leather moto jacket: $98
There’s a perfect leather jacket for every style. And there’s also a perfect faux leather jacket for everyone looking for edgy style on a budget. BLANKNYC’s faux leather moto jacket is cut of soft, pebbled faux leather. The cut is slim and sleek, and classic moto detailing makes it feel just as authentic as a much pricier leather jacket.
8. Quilted faux leather bomber: $98
Bomber jackets are on-trend this winter. Why not opt for an edgy new take on the style, like Vigoss’s quilted faux leather bomber? This is the perfect jacket for the girl who wears lots of black and grey in the autumn and winter months. The quilted faux leather, band collar, and O-ring zipper make this a cool jacket that can add a lot of style to your cold-weather ensembles.
9. Scuba jacket: $69.90
There aren’t that many styles of winter coats that are a good fit for somebody with a sporty sense of style. But Calvin Klein’s light grey scuba jacket is one of those rare styles that will look just as good with your running clothes as it will with your less-casual pieces. It features a stand collar and zip-off hood, plus a water-resistant finish that makes it a great choice when the weather gets unpleasant.
10. Knit topcoat: $99
A major trend this season is fluffy faux fur coats, just like this fun style from Vero Moda. A textured faux fur coat like this one offers a warm and affordable way to add a dose of fun to your cold-weather ensembles. This one features a draped collar, concealed pockets, and an open front that makes the style easy to layer as you adapt to autumn and then to winter temperatures.
