You can always rely on Burlington Coat Factory for great coats-even designer coats-for a lot less than department store prices. And the wide selection is always a plus. Last weekend I saw this down filled “Chevron Puffer Coat with Faux Fur Trim” by London Fog and was surprised at the price-originally $150, it was now only $70! You can’t get any better in quality than a London Fog coat. The hood is detachable so you can choose to wear it with or without. The chevron pattern creates a slimming effect and with the cinched waist you can avoid looking like a marshmallow! Find it at burlingtoncoatfactory.com.
This “Quilted Puffer Coat” by MICHAEL Michael Kors is a nice take on the puffer style. It is less quilted than the usual but will still keep you extremely warm. The high neck collar has two snap closures to keep the cold out in addition to the three metal clip closures. It’s available in Black or Red (shown) at Nordstrom and nordstrom.com for $99.
The first thing I noticed about this Marc New York “Asymmetrical Short Down Coat” was the great orange color. I rarely buy black coats in the winter and always opt for a colored coat instead. It has a fabulous pillow collar with an interior ribbed knit collar that you can zip all the way to fend off the cold. The asymmetrical side zipper is so cool and out of the ordinary. Bonus: it was $220 but you can grab it at Macy’s and macys.com for $135. Also available in Black and Olive.
You’ll definitely need a long coat this winter. I’ve worn my Lands End “Chevron Down Coat” for the past two winters and when I tell you it’ll keep you warm-trust me it will! I love this coat and look forward to wearing it every year. It has the same chevron pattern as the London Fog coat above, again flattering your silhouette. The hood is detachable and so is the hood making it very versatile. Look for it under the Overstock category at landsend.com. For $80, this is one of the best coats I’ve ever found.
