Splurging on investment pieces is always a smart way to shop. Even though you have to spend a little more money on the front end, you can always justify your purchase by "price per wear” (think: the more you wear it, the more it’s worth the pricey ticket). A leather dress is both seasonless and luxe—not to mention, a statement dress creates a full look with just one piece.

Depending on the silhouette, you can wear the style off-duty, for a night out, or at the office. Black, grey, navy, and tan are good choices because they are so easy to restyle with each wear. Whatever you choose, don't be afraid to try the unexpected and couple it with a cool fashion sneaker and wool coat for the weekend!
