The Fashion Bomb’s Guide to 50+ Fashionable Winter Coats For Every Budget
By Claire

Reader Melissa said, “NYC winters can be brutal!! With the winter approaching, I’m on the hunt for a fashionable coat. The thought is something I can rock with my over the knee boots or Uggs; and I’m not afraid of color. Any thoughts?”
Of course! Now is a good time to start thinking about stocking up for winter with stylish outerwear that will keep you warm and chic. We did a search and found over 50 down, wool, and faux fur coats in a myriad of colors, at prices that range from jaw dropping to sweet and cheap.
Ready?

Wool Coats:

It’s always great to have a standby wool coat in black that you can wear to formal events and professional occasions. It’s important to choose wisely, as this will be the main item people see when you’re out and about. A few tips: Belted styles work best, as they’ll offer an hourglass silhouette (even with tons of layers underneath). Also, when shopping, perform the ‘crush’ test to gauge the quality of the fabric. Ball a piece of material in your hands and hold for 30 seconds. If the coat looks wrinkled, so will you, so keep it moving. If the fabric bounces back, go for it! Invest in a neutral color, then save on a fun colored or patterned option:

Puffy or Down Coats:

Down coats are perfect for kicking it on weekends, or for when it’s so cold a wool just won’t work. Opt for a belted or tailored option to avoid looking like a marshmallow, and express your good taste with fur trim or asymmetrical zippers.

Faux Fur:

Have lots of fun with faux fur. Go for demure in solid winter white, black, or gray, or tap into your wild side like Tolula Adeyemi with leopard print. This isn’t for the shy..but who said you were?

Will you be getting a new winter coat this season?
I know will. I couldn’t fit my Mackage coat in my overstuffed suitcase when I moved back to the States..so I’ll be on the hunt! For more on my winter style, check out my wish list.

    @lostluv224: I’m the same way! Outerwear can easily make or break an outfit.
    Thanks for the post, love the choices!

  7. This post rocked! I have a coat fetish and own them all (wool, faux fur, leather, puffer you name it) yet I still see a few more that I might want to “try on” now that I read this post. ;-)

  9. Claire says:

    @HerSheLips I feel the same way! It’s totally on my wish list, but it sold out in like 3 days (even with a $2,000 pricetag).

  16. Tish, your attacks on the 100-point system beg more from you than attack. Got an alternative that will be useful and accepted? If not, then I dont see the point in slandering the system that millions of people accept.
