Closet Q&A: Professional Coats

"I am looking for a fall to winter coat that can be used in professional settings. My preference is to stay under $200. Any ideas?" -Angela

A coat is a great investment piece, especially if you live in a cold weather place like Detroit! During the frigid months, oftentimes our outerwear is the only piece of clothing that is seen. It's also a wardrobe staple that can pull together an entire outfit - which is especially important during interviews, networking events, and other work functions where it is important to make a good impression.

If you are going to only invest in one coat, I'd recommend a knee length wool coat - a piece that is both versatile and practical. A neutral color - like black, camel, or gray - will certainly go with everything in your closet, but I would also consider color as well. A colorful coat can really brighten up those dark winter days!

I've put together a list of my favorite finds (all under $200). Find out all the details and where to buy here!
