The beauty of throwing on a jacket or coat during the fall is that it instantly pulls together an outfit when you’re not completely sold on it yet (this tends to be the case when I need to rush out the door in the morning). Case in point: I’ve been reaching for this petite faux leather trim boiled wool coat from Ann Taylor on a regular basis these past few weeks. The black and white flecked wool isn’t too heavy– perfect for the current temperatures and layering throughout the season. While the coat doesn’t seem like much on a hanger, I love the way it looks dressed up for work and dressed down on the weekends. This topper’s versatility seamlessly fits into my current mindset of stress-free dressing. Here are a few ways I’ve worn it…
