Keep warm in style without breaking the bank

Today is December 21st... not only my husband's birthday, it i also the first day of winter.  I am already shopping for my warm weather trip in February... which means I am getting sick of the cold weather.  One way I always beat the winter blues to get a winter coat that I LOVE and enjoy wearing!  

This season there are three jacket styles that are chic and cozy!  All three  were originally designed by European Fashion brands and could have you shelling out around $3,000 for each coat. Sometimes I don't feel like making such a major investment in a piece that I may not find myself loving next season!   I have done the research for you... here are this seasons key coats that won't damage your wallet.

The Aviator Jacket
This shearling lined flight jacket usually metal buckles at the hem and the collar.  This is the winterized version of the bomber jacket. You probably have seen this jacket by Acne Studios  that retails for $2,700 on celebs.

These are the best Aviator Jackets around that don't cost an arm and a leg.

The Asymmetrical Puffer Jacket
This is not your run of the mill down jacket.  The asymmetrical puffer jacket keeps you warm while making a statement.  This is Balenziaga's puffer that costs $2,850.

The Fur Lined Parkra
I completely went GAGA for this jacket last year when spotting a MR & MRS Italy fur parka last year in a local boutique.   I looked at the $7,000 price tag, rolled my eyes, and stored the information in my brain for later internet perusing... give the girl a fashion mission and she will achieve it!  


Here are a few great options whose price tags don't cause an eye roll.
