If you can only make one investment all year in your wardrobe, it should probably be a coat. Reason being: it’s literally your sartorial version of a first impression when you’re out and about making the rounds at parties, strolling in the park on a Saturday afternoon or whatever it is that you do come fall/winter. Plus, it’s one of the few fashion items that will not only complete your outfit but also simultaneously save your ass from freezing off when temperatures reach their terrifying lows. (For all you Miami natives reading this, please kindly ignore and go back to your beach chair).
