Bundling Up for Less

Staying chic and warm can be hard to do sometimes. When it comes down to staying chic and warm it's all about finding the right coat for you. Different coats can take your from day to night or keep your look casual or out right chic. Here are some budget friendly jackets that can fit into your lifestyle: 






Winter Casual


Sweater
Chai Speed Jacket, $95
Dorothy Perkins denim skinny jeans, $35
Charlotte Russe bootie boots, $40
TopShop faux fur bag, $76
Gathering Eye scarve, $30
ASOS metal shades, $22


Leather jackets can keep you looking easy going and warm during the winter months. Take a twist on the usual leather jacket and pick a blush tone jacket like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Modcloth's Chai Speed Jacket is the perfect match to Rosie's jacket but with a price tag of $95. Keep your look cool and casual by pairing your look up with a fun and funky leopard print scarf, relaxed calf cowboy boots, skinny jeans and a casual sweater.




Working Gal Winter

Most woman might prefer a wool coat to take us from day to night. Sienna Miller has been seen rocking her Vilder and Nixon coat both all dolled up and in a more relaxed look. Vilder and Nixon's Marie Coat is an asymmetrical jacket that can cost you $1,160 but for a look that is also feminine and has a bit of a fit and flare look ASOS Fit and Flare Coat is comparable in style with a great price tag of $69.08. For the working gal this coat can take you from the office to cocktails while staying warm just slip on a simple dress, a black pump, and a black leather handbag for a work ready look.
