From Denim to Plaid, Here Are The On-Trend (& Affordable) Coats We’ll Be Wearing This Fall

As summer days come to an end and that autumn chill I love so much fills the air, it’s time to start shopping for your fall wardrobe. As much as I am sad to hang up my bikinis and say goodbye to days spent at the beach, I always find comfort in the fact that in fall I get to wear loads of cozy layers. The perfect finishing touch on any fall outfit: a great coat.

From denim to plaid and everything in between, there are endless variations on the coat this year. While it’s great to have options, having too many makes it difficult to even know where to start. That’s where I come in. I’ve rounded up the trendiest (while still being affordable) coats on the internet right now to make your shopping a little easier. Clear some space in your closet — you’re going to want all of these styles. Happy shopping!
