After the snowpocalypse that hit us this past weekend which left a record twenty-six inches of snow on Staten Island, it might be a good idea to invest in a warm winter coat. We looked into the warmest coats that Staten Island had to offer and listed them below. All coats shown are under one hundred dollars.

When I was a kid my mother loved to put me in a biggest quilted coat she could find. This coat definitely takes me back to those times, but with a chic twist. The front is lined on the inside with the polyester quilting to trap the heat inside. The black matte front creates a slimming effect when contrasted with the quilted sides and sleeves, this effect is called color blocking. This coat costs $60 and can be picked up at Avenue in the SI Mall.
Not only is this coat chic, it will also keep you warm. The coat is in the boyfriend style which first became popular in the 1980s. We love this look because it is easy for anyone to pull it off and can easily transition from day to night. Located in the SI Mall, this coat costs $80.
For $70, this coat is both stylish and warm. This coat is reminiscent of the military trend that has been in since 2013, but this coat offers a softer, feminine flare. It is perfect for wearing to the office and running errands.
If you are looking to splurge, this coat is $130 from Express. This coat has plenty of pockets and is on trend with the contrast of the black and the gray. In recent years the runways and celebrities alike have been gravitating towards coats that have prints, color blocking, and of course the classic pea coat.
