As we turn towards fall, we need to think about our closet
necessities. This season, basic jackets are transformed into fun and
feminine frocks. Covering up for the cold doesn’t mean covering up your
style. These coats speak for themselves.
Inspiration: Viktor & Rolf
Real Life: Neiman Marcus design ($295) at Neiman Marcus
Who thought a pea coat could look feminine? The Peter Pan collar and
hidden empire waist give this coat a real girly punch. Plus, the bold
magenta is so hot for the fall.
Inspiration: Anna Sui
Real Life: 3.1 Phillip Lim ($480) at Net-a-Porter
The over-sized sweater is uber-popular this season, and rightly
so—doesn’t it look so comfy chic? Dress it up with a turtleneck and
tights (a la Anna Sui).
Real life: Lux ($78) at Urban Outfitters
An absolute staple for every working woman. The metallic sleeves on
this basic black blazer are too fabulous to pass up (such a surprising
detail for an office meeting essential).
