The autumn season has come to an end and the winter weather is here! With winter approaching, it’s important to not only stay warm but also to stay trendy.
As college students, we all know how great it feels to get a nice new wardrobe piece for a bargain. You may think it’s impossible to score a nice winter coat for a deal, but believe it or not, there’s a lot you can do for just $100 or less. Here are just a few styles in which you can strut down the streets this winter.
Whether you’re out for a night on the town or at a New Year’s Eve celebration, a nice wool coat will maintain the elegance of your outfit while still managing to keep you warm.
Parkas are great ways to extend that infamous “green jacket” look into the colder months. Usually made from that same cargo style material, parkas are usually much thicker and warmer on the inside and may come with a removable faux fur hood.
Bomber jackets were a hit this fall and guess what, you can still rock your favorite bomber jacket this winter too. A great tip for the winter is to know the skill of layering! You can easily wear some of your favorite pieces throughout the winter through layering. Along with layering, there are tons of bomber jackets out there for the winter that are longer and bulkier to help us keep warm.
Full Faux Fur Coats:
For some of you ladies who like to be a little more fabulous and wish to channel your inner “Joanne the Scammer” look, full faux fur coats are just for you. You can still pull off the timeless fur coat look without the animal cruelty.
Accented Faux Fur Coats:
Along with the full on faux fur look, many designers have decided to add accents of faux fur to their coat pieces this season. The touch of fur brings your basic jacket into something a bit more stylish.
