If you’re anything like me, every year you wait until the last possible minute to finally invest in a winter coat — and even when you do, you’d rather not splurge on one if you can help it.
Even though in Canada, it’s winter, for what feels like three quarters of the year, bringing yourself to spend more than a hundred dollars on a single item, for what is quite possibly, the worst season of the year, can be nearly impossible.
Having to bundle up for nearly six months isn’t exactly something most of us look forward to. The good news is, there are a few stores that have your back when it comes to saving you money and keeping you toasty warm this winter. And if you’re on the hunt for other winter gear to keep warm, we recommend checking out slopehound.com for winter apparel and skiwear.
here are five places to shop affordable winter jackets under $150.
H&M is a reliable, inexpensive, one-stop-shop for just about all of our clothing needs, including seasonal outerwear. When the temperature starts dropping below zero, H&M is a good place to grab some gear to protect you from the cruel, unforgiving Canadian winter, if you’re on a budget.
If you’re looking for something on the trendier, more stylish side, you can peacoats and the like for as low as $69.99. Or, if you’re on the hunt for something warmer and more practical, you can find padded parkas for as low as $79.99. Whatever it is you want to sport this winter, you can either order it online to be shipped directly to you, or shop in-person.
Like H&M, Garage is another affordable go-to for women’s attire. The main difference between the two is that Garage tends to skew to a younger audience, with a much smaller selection in comparison to the Swedish powerhouse. With that being said, the Montreal-based retailer has a variety of affordable jackets for under the $150 mark. From sherpa fleece aviator jackets that’ll keep you warm with a little layering to more classic puffer styles, Garage is an overlooked spot for coats that’ll keep you cozy during cooler months.
Simons has a reputation for being on the more expensive side and for carrying countless brands that one might consider to be less economical than H&M and Garage. Although that is true to an extent, Simons also carries high-quality styles that are durable, warm, and won’t break your bank. This season, you can shop winter jackets for as low as $59.95.
Hudson’s Bay is as Canadian as they come, and is an absolutely classic place to shop for just about anything. Whatever it is you’re looking for, Hudson’s Bay definitely has it. Not only can you find a winter jacket for well over a hundred dollars if you wanted, you can also find affordable winter jackets for well-within your budget. Brands such as TOPSHOP, Noize, Vero Moda, and Only, to name a few, have trendy puffer jackets and peacoats starting at $79.99. The packable parka from Michael Michael Kors (pictured above) is just $139.99 and is perfect for an extra layer of warmth.
ASOS is known for its vast selection of fashion-forward apparel and accessories, and the online retailer also has a bevy of affordable winter jackets to choose from. Online you can find peacoats, puffers, teddy coats, anoraks, and other cold weather styles for under $150. Not to mention, they have petite, tall, maternity, and plus sizes to shop. The only caveat is that you can’t try before you buy, so keep that (and its $22.40 return postage fee) in mind before you make your purchase.
