Chic Colored Coats for Under-$250

Oct 23, 2013

Colored outerwear is a big trend for fall.  It’s a great way to brighten up cold weather days.  But some of the prices for these coats, yikes!  So if you’re looking for an eye-catching coat that won’t split your paycheck into pieces check out these stylish coats that cost under-$250.

Pink is the hottest trend in outerwear, but who wants to pay $800 for an Elizabeth and James coat that makes you look like you skinned Abby Cadabby?  This Victoria’s Secret coat is a more sophisticated way to mix some pink into your wardrobe.  I also like this double-breasted Nicole Miller swing coat.  And if you’re lucky enough to be a size FR36, you need to look at this Vanessa Bruno coat.

Want a pink coat that is shocking pink?  This Tildon Lofty coat is a gorgeous shade of pale.

If bold brights are your preference, check out this cobalt blue coat from Banana Republic or this tomato-red coat from Mango.  This cobalt stadium coat is a great casual option.  And I like the look of this red peacoat from Delia’s that also has Thinsulate.

Bright shades not your thing?  This pine green takes advantage of the trend in a subtler way.  I also adore this BB Dakota Tenley coat in a gorgeous shade of burgundy.  And this Sam Edelman Kit coat comes in a rich-looking army green with a fabulous wide collar.

Plus-size ladies should check out this Pendleton Walker Coat.  It’s ladylike and a brighter shade of blue.  I also found this vibrant orange peacoat, and Land’s End has a lovely selection of coats, like this one that comes in berry, teal and grape.

If you already have a great neutral coat, think about indulging in a pop of color.  Bright and vibrant or deep and elegant, a bit of color goes a long way.

    I’ve been looking for a lightweight trench coat/raincoat (not a wool coat) in this berry shade of pink, or maybe a kelly green, but have had a surprising amount of difficulty finding options.

    Anyone seen anything like this?

  2. Cobalt blue is my colour. Pink? Not so much. I can even do red…

    The only thing about these coats, is that although they aren’t cheap under $250, they are still never going to last beyond 3-4 dry cleans. I can attest to this, having wasted plenty of money on coats like this in the past. *sigh*

    It seems like either you pay $800 – $2000 minimum for something that will stand the test of time (10 – 40 years of wearing the same coat), or you’re screwed after 3-4 years, which I guess is the whole point of disposable, trendy clothing.

      3-4 years is a decent amount of time. By that time, trends have changed, and personal preferences probably have too. You’re not going to get a brightly colored coat to last decades, and you can certainly find a durable, quality, classic coat for well under $800. Are you shopping for furs or something?

    I have a bright yellow wool coat from Talbot’s last year (about $200 on sale) and it makes me ridiculously happy on dreary days. A co-worker even told me I looked ‘fabulous’ in it today.

    Just bought the cobalt BR coat this week, and have received a zillion compliments. It is truly beautiful, well-lined, warm, and has classy gold embellishments. The color is fantastic!

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
