Look Good For Less! Stylish Winter Coats for Under $100

In this troubled economy, the sale rack has never looked more attractive, as women who are shopping are looking for affordable, high-quality clothes. And with winter quickly approaching, many women are likely seeking the perfect coat.

Although coats generally cost more than $100, "Good Morning America" teamed up with Glamour magazine executive fashion editor Suze Yalof Schwartz to find coats that cost much less - proving that high fashion doesn't always have to have a high price tag.

The Warmest Coat

Puffer jackets are the perfect weekend option, and this sleeping bag coat by Norma Kamali for Wal-Mart is no exception. In this coat, you will stay warm running errands outdoors, or at winter events. It's so chic, you can wear it to work, Schwartz says. The booties, cuffs and gold aviator sun glasses add extra sophistication to this ensemble.

As seen on "GMA":

Coat: Norma Kamali for Wal-Mart Sleeping Bag Coat, $35

Turtleneck: American Apparel, $28

Cuffs: Lulu's.com, $17 each

Leggings: American Apparel, $26

Booties: Steve Madden, $120

The Classic Pea Coat – With a Kick!

Pea coats have always been a favorite style among women. This bright pink version is an updated, 2009 version of the classic navy or basic black. Schwartz encourages women not to shy away from color in a coat.

Although this coat was paired with black leggings and booties, it will work with jeans, your favorite shift dress, or many other things in your wardrobe, she says.

As seen on "GMA":

Coat: OneStopPlus.com, $99

Top: Old Navy, $20

Scarf: Fred Flare, $22

Bag: American Eagle Outfitters, $30

Gloves: Tulle, $18

Leggings: American Apparel, $26

Booties: ShoeOcean.com, $33

The Chic Motorcycle Jacket

On a recent trip to Paris, Schwartz noticed that lots of young French girls were wearing leather motorcycle jackets. This faux version, from Lulu's, looks and feels real, but costs a fraction of what a real leather jacket would.

Pair it with something fun and flirty, like a short, full miniskirt with booties.

As seen on "GMA":

Coat: Lulus.com, $75 (www.lulus.com)

Hat: H&M, $7

Top: H&M, $25

Skirt: H&M, $25

Booties: Bakers, $60

The Vintage Find

Vintage shopping can turn up some great finds. This vintage coat, from ShopHousingWorks.com, is lined with fur, and is belted to show off your waist. The best part? It's $50.

When you're shopping vintage, take the time to search for good, quality pieces with structure and shape that you can incorporate into your wardrobe for the rest of your life.

As seen on "GMA":

Coat: ShopHousingWorks.com, $50

Hat: Urban Outfitters, $30

Turtleneck: American Apparel, $28

Tights: Spanx, $26

Boots: ShoeOcean.com, $35

Mad for Plaid

Schwartz says the boyfriend trend has become very popular.

One of her favorite ways to wear it is to incorporate a plaid piece into the overall look. This buffalo plaid coat from Jack by BB Dakota shows off the waist for an feminine look.

The faux fur trapper hat from Gap and faux shearling heeled booties from ShoeOcean.com combine to create a fun and warm look.
