Take a look around you. We suspect you've already noticed a certain "trend" that starts right around this time each year - and it's not so pretty. Even though stores are stocked with coats, coats, and more coats, when the cool temps set in, all you might see is a shroud of drab, dull blah on your morning commute. Talk about uninspiring! So, we've found 7 eye-catching toppers with tons of texture, color, and character - and they don't break the bank.

While a classic, black wool-blend should be in every woman's sartorial arsenal, adding a statement piece to your outerwear set can instantly liven up winter's dreary palette. Try plaids and graphic patterns for a trendy take, or pack a punch of color with bright monochrome iterations - either way, all eyes will be on you. Your winter wonderland, right this way!
