Texas is still a month (or more) away from entering coat-wearing weather, the recent drop in temperatures has put me in the mood to shop for them. While I’m a big believer that a good coat (one that is well-made and classic enough to wear forever!) is one of those wardrobe items that is often worth the investment, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of great options for which you won’t have to break the bank.

Need a few examples? Check out this $59 favorite from H&M. It’s such a great style and one you can wear every single day. (The shorter version is also a good one.) This teddy style coat is another excellent buy. I love the autumnal color. Topshop always has some great gems and this coat is one of them. It comes in three colors – my favorite of which is the dark green. If you’e after some faux fur, try this one or this one. I like the shorter style and think either one would make an easy pairing with jeans. A great casual and lightweight style would be this one from North Face. I’m definitely eyeing this funnel-neck puffer. It has a sporty-chic vibe. On the more utilitarian side of things, check out this fleece-lined parka I just added to my cart. You can’t go wrong with a trench coat. I love this one, this one, or this one. On a totally different note, this biker-style jacket is really cool. It’s a great get-the-look for less option.

Of course, there’s plenty more. Below, a full shopping list with all of my favorites.
