Keeping Warm and Looking Cool - Without Overspending!
By Jillian Bietz
During chilly weather, we often resort to our year-after-year standby coats and sweaters, sacrificing style for practicality. Yet being economical doesn't need to mean frumpy and unfashionable. Think buying that buying a trendy coat will cost you a month's paycheck? Think again, because affordably fashionable outerwear is available, you just have to know where to find it!
Trench's are the most classic coats for winter. With long, lean silhouettes and clean lines, its no wonder that these coats are adored. With a full skirt, big buttons and pleats, this coat from Delias ($68.00) is feminine and funky.
One of the trendiest looks this year is the cape. Not quite a wrap and not quite a coat, the cape's oversize shape creates a warm and comfy covering. Soft as your favorite blanket, this plaid piece from Urban Outfitters ($78.00) is stylish and sweet!
For those who live in areas unaffected by snow or constant rain, a duster cardigan is a great alternative to the common button up or zip up sweater. Besides the fun crocheting, this Forever 21 sweater ($39.80) coat is not only trendy; it adds warmth and style too!
With its great shape, a swing coat is professional and stylish. With bold, tortoise shell buttons and fun pleats, this coat from Nordstrom ($68.00) is a cheery piece for anyone who's feeling the winter blues!
A bomber jacket is perfect for those who don't fancy knee-grazing outerwear. Cropped yet still temperature appropriate, bombers have an edgy, mod appeal that is both chic and youthful. With a stylish plaid print and functional, detachable hood, this jacket from Old Navy ($78.00) is a must have.
In the winter months ahead, don't be left out in the cold! Stay warm and dry - and fabulous!
