15 Winter Coats That Are Actually Affordable

OK, we admit it: Our online shopping baskets are almost NEVER empty in the winter.

Winter coats are a crucial wardrobe staple, especially in places where the polar vortex makes its presence known with its freezing temperatures. We're not forecasters and we can't predict this year's weather, but we can count on annoyingly expensive, yet desirable outerwear to keep us warm.

We know you've had your eye on that double-breasted floor length coat that is so conveniently half your paycheck, and we're not here to judge. However, we've done the shopping research for you, and you CAN find a coat that is in your price range. And guess what? If you feel like treating yourself, you can buy more than one, in place of that really expensive one you've been drooling over for the last few weeks.

Scroll down to find affordable coats for this winter -- you can thank us later.
