From Under $100 to Over $2000-- the Best Colorful Coats at Every Price
by Elana Fishman
Every year-or at least every other year-I try to pick up a great new coat that I know I'll wear all through the following fall and winter. The coat in question tends to be an investment buy-after all, if it's the first piece everyone will see you wearing and you'll be sporting it multiple days per week for months at a time, it's natural to want to spend a bit more on it. But over the past decade, I've somehow wound up choosing a black, navy or brown option every single time. "It'll match everything!" I tell myself. "Dark colors are less recognizable, so nobody will notice I haven't rotated coats in weeks!"
This year, however, I plan to switch things up. I fell particularly hard for the pastel coats on the runways last February, but there are also tons of gorgeous jewel tones and eye-popping brights trickling into stores right now-and all of them make a serious case for busting out of that neutral-hued rut and buying a colorful coat this year. Click through above for my favorite options at every price point, from under $100 to over $2,000. Whether you favor a lipstick red version, a cobalt coat or a tangerine-hued topper, you're sure to find one you love.
