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.
