C’mon Michigan, you were doing so well up until now! But I guess we all knew a winter without snow was too good to be true. And since moving to Cali probably isn’t in the foreseeable future for many of us right now, I guess we’ll just have to bundle up and hunker down until it’s warm again. But, hey, at least we can look cute while doing it, right? Here are a few of the best styles of coats to wear while enduring this chilly weather!

With so many styles and colors to choose from, I guarantee you’ll easily be able to find one without breaking the bank! Best places to buy from: Shop Red Dress, ASOS, Shein, Revolve, Nordstrom Rack
