Fall is a bonanza of jackets, coats, blazers, coats, suits, vests, and—oh, did we say coats? Welcome them all back with open arms, and look for their beautifully tailored details: sharp lapels, well-defined shoulders (instead of last year's exaggerated mounds), finished cuffs, full linings and exquisitely shaped waists.
Make It Work for You Savvy updates of classic sportswear not only go with almost everything in your wardrobe, but they're also destined to be multi-season keepers. So buy the best you can afford (and ask a salesperson to help identify quality hallmarks like matching seams and insets). More important, take along pieces from your closet so you can select the perfect ones to be on call 24/7.
