I Bought This Winter Item for $150, and It Makes Me Feel Rich

I’m all about a deal. Seriously, if I can score an incredible find for less than predicted, I’m straight up living. I know you probably feel the same way too, consistently on the hunt for those affordable must-haves that can bring your wardrobe to the next level without a hefty price-tag. Well, dear readers, my latest under-$150 purchase does just that—elevates my winter look in a way that makes me feel rich. Yep, I’m talking about my new faux-fur leopard coat.

There’s something about a furry topper that just inherently screams money, regardless of the price. I think it has something to do with the glam factor and the whole “old-school Hollywood thing.” Plus, my grandmother used to always wear this type of outerwear piece, and I thought of her as an elegant queen. So there you go. Plus, the perfect faux-fur coat not only brings more texture to your ensemble, but the statement nature means you can wear pretty much anything underneath and still come off looking like a million bucks.

Feeling me? Keep scrolling to scope some of my favorite fashion peeps in their affordable furry jackets (all under $175), plus shop inspired styles if you want to keep it fly like me all winter long.

The details make this coat look so expensive with the modern fit and pink-accented collar.

ASOS seriously has top-notch faux-fur coats, including the style I purchased and silhouettes like this one.

Yet another nudge to live life in a faux-fur leopard coat. 

While this particular H&M coat sold out, there's a smattering of other just-as-flawless iterations on the site now.

For more casual-feeling faux-fur coats, don't forget about Urban Outfitters. The selection is fantastic.
