The very first tip in our commuter’s winter style guide is to “splurge on that coat.” But splurging doesn’t have to mean spending on a coat that’s way out of your budget. Luckily, there’s plenty of outerwear options that are under $200, which we believe is a pretty feasible price tag for a heavy winter coat. If you consider the amount of times you’ll be wearing it during the three-month (or longer) season, it’s nearly $2 a day for your coat. That’s cheaper than a subway ride in New York City! From puffy down jackets to patterned wool coats, check out our slideshow for winter-and-wallet-friendly outerwear. You may even wear it again next winter, saving yourself another $200.
