And if you decide to take the plunge, consider this Missoni Osiride reversible striped coat ($1125); available at Outnet.com. The trend this fall is to be conservative with our spending but not with our fashion -- this coat works after-hours with a pair of navy blue leggings, or at work with black or grey, wide-leg trousers with cuffs.
Given the multicolored wool and mohair-blend stripes, it doesn't require a lot of accessories other than a stunning black/graphite handbag. The self-tie belt allows you to bundle up but, also provides shape for those with less than an hourglass figure. And the side-slash pockets give you a place to put your lipstick without adding bulk to your silhouette!
A beautiful addition to any wardrobe that will last for years to come...as long as you store it properly!.
