Wearing a fabulous new coat is the best part about the weather getting colder. If you live in a climate that is freezing or moderately chilly most of the year, then your coat is what people will notice about you first. I know it’s kind of sad, but that chic outfit you have covered up will play second fiddle to your outerwear. So why not let your coat be a fashion statement all on its own? Winter coats have gone way beyond the humdrum, functional wool peacoat of the past. This season look for bright colors, plaid or herringbone. And designers are even adding details like puff-sleeves, drop-waists and ruffles to make coats stand out. If you live in a particularly cold area, No. 10 proves that even a down puffer can be stylish. Bonus: all the coats in this slideshow cost $250 or less.Click the photos for more info!
