With the cold weather officially here to stay, now’s the time to make sure that you’ve got the right coat to beat the chill. And staying warm and stylish this fall doesn’t need to be expensive.
From a sleek trench coat and a cozy cropped puffer to a faux fur leopard print jacket, there are plenty of options for outerwear that won’t break the bank.
To help you find the best affordable options, we spoke to fashion stylist Travis Alexander Walls and asked him for his top picks of coats and jackets for under $100. Below he shares his favorites.
Travis says: ‘The trench coat is a staple of cold, wet weather, and this one from Prima is perfect for the minimalist dresser. With its modern slim lines and subdued details it easy to see why Meghan Markle has been sporting a similar coat recently.’
Travis says: ‘This ASOS Design mid length coat is worthy of Blair Waldorf’s closet with its cool tones and textured fabric. Add a brooch to the lapel or pair it with a plaid skirt to make a real impact worthy of Gossip Girl’s approval.’
Travis says: ‘Shearling is always a great choice for winter, and with this irresistibly soft faux fur version you are sure to be both stylish and warm this winter.’
Travis says: ‘This may be the last puffer jacket you ever buy. It is so slim you can pack it in a purse, or sear it under your suit jacket.’
Travis says: ‘From Kate Moss to K Pop stars, the leopard print faux fur jacket is staple of any “It” girl’s wardrobe. Pair it with black leather pants or a slinky little dress for going out on the town. It’s a perfect staple for any fashion-minded person.’
Travis says: ‘Not just another black coat. This black and white plaid jacket is the perfect piece for anyone who favors the dark side of style. It’s sure to become a staple in anyone’s wardrobe.’
Travis says: ‘This is a Chanel-inspired tweed look that is perfect for the colder months. It’s a great two-for-one as the matching skirt is also included in the price. Pair this look with white tights, black booties, and a fisherman’s cap, and you’ll look like you’ve just stepped put of the pages of Vogue.’
Travis says: ‘I absolutely love this jacket. It’s bold, fun, and so on trend. Plus you can live out your Cher Horowitz fantasies with the matching skirt.’
Travis says: ‘Stand out in the snow with this fun metallic Parka. Perfect for any streetwear loyalist, or simply throw it over your gym clothes for a fun way to stay visible.’
Travis says: ‘Take charge in this perfectly fitted blazer. With its sleek lines and broad shoulders, it is sure to command attention. Match it with a silky slip dress and take it out of the office and onto the town.’
Travis says: ‘Slither in style with this red snake print biker jacket. You’ll need the matching mini skirt to complete the look, but it just so happens it comes as a set. What’s better than two for one?’
Travis says: ‘This Aqua double breasted Chanel-inspired jacket it the perfect staple to any wardrobe. It’s a great piece that can easily elevate any outfit whether it be work or pleasure.’
Travis says: ‘Unisex clothing has become more and more popular every season. Asos is offering some great jackets for the cold season that you can either share or buy two and match. You’ll be sure not too lose each other in the crowd.’
