Finding a great winter jacket on a tight budget

Dec 18th 2014 at 2:14 AM

With our winters getting seemingly colder and longer every year, the time has come to reluctantly think about buying a jacket to take the chill off and help you stay cosy for the coming season.

As times are tight, bargain hunting is the key to success!

With so much choice when it comes to finding cheap jackets online it can be difficult as you are swamped by so many options it becomes confusing. To avoid this situation, know what you are looking for from the outset as you can then easily narrow down the options. Some considerations include:








A coat that will be worn every day is more of an investment than a fashion jacket which may only be worn for a night out or special occasion, so choose wisely. If you will be wearing the item a lot it might be a good idea to opt for something with handy features like pockets, a hood, or a waterproof material. The ideal coat or jacket should be lightweight yet warm and affordable but good-quality.

You can avoid bulk by choosing a lightweight jacket and layering instead to keep out the cold. A gilet or bodywarmer on top would do the trick, as would a wisely chosen top or jumper underneath.

Getting a great deal
Shopping online is probably the best way to get a great deal, even if you just use the internet to research what's available before trying an item on in store. Online shopping immediately pinpoints options within your budget and lets you know if stock is available at the touch of a button. Here's how to find what you want:

Check out pre-loved coats, perhaps by checking auction sites like EBay, Facebook buy and sell sites, or vintage shops. These will be undoubtedly cheaper and you may even find a real gem!

Shop during the sales to avail of the best deals. Many shops have offers year round, so as well as the traditional sale periods, you may be able to get a bargain simply by keeping an eye on your favourite shops or searching for the type of jacket you want.

Head to an outlet shop for past season items at knockdown prices. Nobody need know you're not wearing the latest fashion unless you tell them.

Compare prices and don't forget to take into consideration the cost of delivery and possible returns if shopping online.

Don't be afraid to compromise   shopping on a budget means you may not get exactly what you had in mind, but you can certainly get very close to meeting your criteria.

By setting a strict budget and having an idea of what you want, there's no reason why you can't stay warm this winter, simply by wearing the right coat.
