The One Coat Style Every Woman Needs


One of the many reasons we love the holidays is the opportunity to gussy up more often than we do in warmer months. But then there’s the moment when you’re dressed for the night, you reach for your coat and it suddenly feels inadequate. While most women have their daytime outerwear on lock, the perfect evening topper can be more elusive. Fortunately, beautiful options abound this season, from velvet to brocade to fur (faux, of course). And if your taste skews more minimal, go for a classic silhouette with delicate beading or an embellished collar. Here, 16 party-ready coats to consider, from designer takes to those under $100.
