The 4:45 p.m. sunsets don’t lie. Winter is well on its way, and that means it’s time to break out the coats and heavy jackets we’ve had stashed at the back of our closets all year. If you’re due for a fresh one this season (or just have your eye on a new style), you’re in luck — there are tons of excellent options right now that ring in under $200.
Now there’s just the question of what kind you’re going to get. Military-style pea coats and trenches are a classic, and in thicker wool fabrications, they’ll do the trick even when it drops below freezing. Ditto, of course, for parkas — try the silver version from Beyoncé’s Ivy Park line for a sporty, on-trend look or a faux fur-trimmed performance style from Uniqlo for something you can wear every day.
Aritzia’s parkas, alas, are a little splurgier (in the $300 range), and although they will last you basically forever (seriously, I know at least one 30-something who’s had theirs since high school), the lighter puffer by in-house brand TNA is a great option for something a little less spendy.
Shop all of these, plus fuzzy Sherpa jackets, shawl-collar coats and more — all under $200 and ready to wear for the season ahead.
