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.


Ultra 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.

Burgundy 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.

Grey 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.

Layered Softshell Jacket

Going up to a 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.

Faux-Fur-Trim Hooded Puffer Coat

Running up to a 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.

Blue 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.

Maxi 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.

Fur-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 you rather than seep into your coat.

Quilted 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.

Steve 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.

Padded 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.

Metallic 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!

Tiered 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!

Plus-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.

Padded 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.
