For Windy Days:
A COZY COVER-UP
A fur collar, belted waist and wool fabrication are just a few of the reasons to get wrapped up in this coat on breezy days. Paired with leather skinnies for an edgy look or over a boho dress for a ladylike take, it’s the epitome of everyday indulgence.

For Cloudy Days:
A MODERN MOTO
Fact: a leather motorcycle-style jacket is part of every It girl’s uniform. This mainstay is made for transitioning between seasons (and climates) and can be worn day and night with everything from downtown denim to elegant eveningwear.

For Rainy Days:
A COOL CLASSIC
Drizzly days call for pick-me-up pieces like glamorous rain boots or a chic umbrella. Enter the camel trench. This season, the double-breasted design gets an update by way of a cape silhouette that lends polish to a turtleneck-and-wide-leg-pants outfit.

For Clear Days:
A LUXE LAYER
Because wardrobe basics should be anything but basic, invest in a head-turning coat to take all wintery days up a notch. Case in point: a burgundy, mohair find. Go monochrome with other items in the same glam shade for a high-fashion look or button over a feminine blouse and a pencil skirt for a vibrant commute.

For Travel Days:
PACKABLE PUFFERS
Athleisure is this season’s byword, so sporty jackets have never been more on-point. This one conveniently folds into a pouch, making it perfect for the girl on the go. Pair with boyfriend jeans, sneakers and a backpack for a sport-luxe look.

For Snowy Days:
A POLAR PICK
From the detachable fur trim to the practical pockets, this down-filled design is the epitome of urban armor: fashionable, functional and freezing-proof. Team with a knit, white pants and knee-high boots for a modern look or wear over a little black dress to transition from home-to-coat-check in style.
