New Year's Eve is the one night of the year where you're encouraged to throw caution to the wind and don your most outrageously glamorous outfit. But while we're all for slinky slip dresses and metallic minis, cold weather presents obvious sartorial challenges. Coupled with the fact that we're not exactly looking to shell out for an expensive piece right after the indulgent holiday season, we'd argue that a stylish yet affordable coat is a NYE essential.
With both style and practicality in mind, we've rounded up the best affordable and chic New Year's Eve coats on the internet. Whether you're looking to stay warm throughout the night or simply layer a festive piece over your going-out outfit, we've found the perfect coat to complete your New Year's Eve ensemble. Ranging from $60 to $395, find 15 budget-friendly New Year's Eve coats that look surprisingly expensive below.
This list wouldn't be complete without the style of the season: the trench coat. While the term may conjure up a Matrix-esque mental image for some, the look has come a long way since the '90s. The latest iterations don't skimp on versatility—trenches now come in every print, material, and length imaginable. Your search for a wild print, a vinyl number, or a style with pockets ends here.
