Coat as a cape

Coats and jackets—cute as they’re intended—look even better when worn as capes this season. Put one over your shoulders and be amazed as it frames everything and shows your clothing underneath (I know you don’t plan to actually cover up your clothing all day). Let it become more accessory-like and less like outerwear.

I picked up this immaculate Ann Taylor jacket for $2—YES, $2—from Goodwill. This Talbots purse accentuates the golds I love to pull out this time of year, and it was also from Goodwill. I’m a sucker for that place.

Athleisure

Lately I’m loving athleisure looks. They’re strong yet relaxed, and they’re typically finished with some type of slip-on shoe. I’m also loving the versatility of this season’s “it” pant — tie waist trousers/joggers — as you can dress them up or down. I chose to pair them with a varsity tee, but also with heels (sorry, sneaks) and dressy jewelry — creating an almost-athleisure look that’s still acceptable for the office.
