When the temperatures start dipping to downright frosty levels and snow starts blanketing the ground, it's time to bundle up and bust out your selection of winter coats. But finding a warm winter coat on a budget is one of life's toughest goals to achieve — and a stylish winter coat under $100 is about as elusive as a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
Proper down jackets can set you back hundreds of dollars, and often, they're just not as fashionable as you might like. Sure, you could grit your teeth and survive the season in an expensive coat that doesn't make you feel like a million bucks, but why grin and bear it if you don't have to?
Yes, it might be tricky to find a decent coat, but it's not impossible — all it takes is patience and a whole lot of digging. Ahead are 15 warm and toasty coats that will cost you less than one Benjamin, and are so stylish you'll be happy to wear them out. They will enhance — not set back — your winter style, making your foray outside of your warm and cozy apartment that much less painful. This winter, you'll be prepared.
1Ultra Light Quilted Coat
This piece not only comes in a chic, quilted pattern, but also boasts a durable water-repellent coating. But the cool thing about this jacket is that it's not just a stand-alone coat, but can also double as a second layer. So if you have a peacoat you love but is too thin to endure the middle of winter, you can pop this underneath to make it warmer.
2Burgundy Down Coat
For those that like to skip the black coats and opt for more colorful options that will help brighten up those dark winter days, this burgundy coat is a great choice. Coming in a pretty berry color, it's as chic as it is practical.
3Grey Hooded Coat
Don't let the thinness of this coat fool you: Uniqlo specializes in creating compact coats that pack a ton of warmth. Coming in a bevy of different colors and a bell-like silhouette, this option is both toasty and feminine.
4Layered Softshell Jacket
Going up to an XXL, this coat doubles up with two layers, making you extra warm during your morning or evening commute. Bonus: It has sleeves where you can loop your thumbs through, meaning your wrists won't get cold when a piercing wind sneaks through.
5Faux-Fur-Trim Hooded Puffer Coat
Running up to an XXL, this jacket will add a touch of luxury to your cold-weather-style with its fur trim and sleek silhouette — and it comes in black, too.
6Blue Fur Anorak
Or if you want to add a funky touch to your look, swap out the traditional brown or black fur options for a more punk look. This waist-hitting jacket rocks dark blue fur around the hood, making it stand out from the usual down coats during the season.
7Maxi Puffer Coat
For those of you who don't mess around with the cold, here is a maxi puffer coat that will envelop you in all the warmth you'll need to brave the cold front outside. This particular plus size one goes from 1X to 3X.
8Fur Trimmed Grey Parka
This stylish coat has a heavy duty polyester fill, which traps your body heat and keeps you warm. It also has a water resistant shell, which means the snow will roll right off of you rather than seep into your coat.
9Quilted Parka with Detachable Faux Fur Hood
It's true that a lot of winter coats incorporate some kind of fur or quilted pattern into their looks, but not all jackets are made equally. This one looks more elegant and streamlined than other options, giving you a more tailored and grown up winter look.
10Steve Madden Puffer Parka Coat
Heavily insulated with rib knit inner cuffs for warmth, this heavy duty coat will go the distance for you this winter. And if olive green isn't your color, it also comes in black and sand.
11Padded Jacket in Color Block
If you like to make a statement during the winter, this coat is right up your alley. Complete with color blocking, bright look-at-me-hues, belled sleeves, and a drawstring hood, you couldn't find a bigger statement if you tried.
12Metallic Gold Jacket
Look like you wrapped yourself in gold leaf with this pretty metallic coat. You'll be easy to spot in the white snow with this disco ball of a jacket!
13Tiered Puffer Jacket
Form fitting, stylish, and with plenty of pocket room, what more can a person ask for from their winter coat? And the best part is that it's not just all looks and no substance — the reviews show that this jacket stood the test against both Cleveland and Alaskan winters!
14Plus Size Quilted Coat
The quilted pattern adds a chic texture to a warm and functional jacket. It features cozy faux fur lining at the collar, as well as a detachable hood if you decide that the extra head covering is too bulky for some occasion.
15Padded Orange Jacket
Don't shy away from color this winter. Instead do something drastic and sport a bright orange coat among the sea of grey and black. Rocking a slightly '90s silhouette, this baggy, cropped jacket with a sporty collar is just the thing to feel stylish while bundled up.
Stay on budget this winter with these sleek and practical jackets. With a little savvy shopping, you can stay warm and toasty with a full wallet.
