9 Winter Coats Under £50, Because You Can Brave The Cold Without Breaking The Bank
If you've been holding out for an extremely prolonged summer, you might want to give up all hope now. With the weather taking a turn for the worse, it's time to dig out your winter wardrobe and prepare for the inevitable chill. Finding the perfect cover-up, however, can be tricky so I've compiled the best winter coats under £50 to save you hours of trawling.
Although stores are still releasing their autumn/winter options, there are already plenty of warm coats on offer. Animal print is set to be a huge trend over the coming months, so opting for a leopard or zebra design is certainly one route to go down. Meanwhile, '90s style puffers are also still here, there, and everywhere, providing you with the ideal retro look.
Unfortunately, the high street seems to have upped its prices, making a search for a coat that won't cost you almost £100 a little tedious. But the following options give you good quality for a good price; a rare occurrence in today's fast fashion world. Plus most of them come in a range of shades to suit both the colour-shy and those who prefer something a lot brighter.
From always on trend trenches to office-appropriate checked designs, you might struggle to pick just one from this cosy round-up.
1. A Workwear Style
Black Check Formal Longline Coat
If you work in a particularly strict office, you might want to save your louder options for your days off. This checked coat is lightweight (so great for hot and stuffy public transport) and will go with almost any outfit you throw on in the morning. Plus it's only £20. Unfortunately, it appears to have sold out online but you can still pick it up in Asda (available in UK 8 - 22) stores.
2. The Loud And Proud Option
3. One For The Outdoorsy Types
Lightweight Down & Feather Jacket
Marks & Spencer
In recent months, high-end designers have been inspired by mountaineering, adventuring, and all things outdoors. Get the trend for less with this subtly padded jacket from Marks & Spencer (comes in size 6 - 24). Fitted with the brand's Stormwear technology and padded with down and feather, it's water-repellent and warm. And if you're not a huge fan of the green look, it comes in eight other colour options.
4. A Budget-Friendly Alternative
Faux Suede Coat
Let's be honest, we'd all love to flaunt around in real leather and real suede but, more often than not, our minds and bank accounts don't see eye to eye. Zara's (available in UK size 6 - 18; XXS - XXL) longline fake suede version looks just as good and is a steal at under £30. It comes in three shades: russet (pictured here), tobacco, and khaki.
