With the cold weather ringing in heavy knits and thicker fabrics, fall and winter naturally come with a steep price. But rather than stocking up on dozens of layering pieces, I find the best way to save is to splurge on one go-to piece that'll last the entire season (or better yet, many others to follow). Yes, I'm talking about a new coat.
Now is the best time to gear up and start looking for one. If you're like me and expecting to go the trendy route, this season reigns with new-meets-old styles like animal print, shearling details and belted vinyl coats, along with classic styles like oversized denim jackets and puffers.
