Smarter Style: Gorgeous Coats for Cheap!

Posted by   + Show Post

If you're in the market for a new coat, now is the time to buy. Stores are clearing out their stock of outerwear to make room for warm-weather items, so there are some incredible deals. And if, like me, you live somewhere winters are long, gray and chilly, having a coat that makes you smile every time you put it on is a style must.

Cape coats are a big trend this year. This elegant one from Jacklyn Smith has faux-fur trim and a high collar that would work with dressy clothes even after the trend is long past. (Kmart, $67.99).

Here's another, more casual cape style that hits two other trends: bright colors and belted coats (Zappos, $79.99).

I love the bright color and slim profile of this puffer coat...most down coats look dowdy but this one is really stylish (Victoria's Secret, $74.99).

Skirted coats are huge (and adorable) right now, and the bright blue will stand out amid all the black, brown and red coats (Delia's, $39.99)

If you're not into leopard print (I'm not), stylish, flattering plus-size coats can be tough to find. This pretty purple one has a face-framing collar and nice, flattering cut (Old Navy, $47.99).

Do you have a coat you love? What's it like?

 I never wear coats, we really don't need them in Miami.

 I have light weight sweaters that I can throw on for the few hours it is cold here.

Yes I have a few nice coats. I plan on buying a new coat for my DD for next year when they go on clearance in February or March at Walmart.

I would like the red one if the sleeves were longer. My coat is similar to the last one.

 I like some of them but I hate the look of the puffer one!
