This transitional period we're in is the best time to stock up on weather-centric essentials, and you can never have too many chic chilly-weather options, right? Stock your closet with gritty-meets-glam outerwear from Mike & Chris. It's ladylike and urban all at the same time, perfect for sophisticated city folk.
If Project Runway's Christian taught us anything with his winning collection, it's that little black jackets never go out of style. This feminine Danny leather jacket ($236, was $656) with bubble hem and three-quarter sleeves is no exception. Layer over long and lean tees and play with the volume-on-top trend with this cute cropped option.
If your style is slightly boho, pick this lovely Jude lambskin trench ($740, was $1,232). The chocolate leather is slightly vintage-inspired, and the funky fold-over collar and cuffs are straight from the '70s, but the whole package is utterly contemporary and fashion-forward.
If you've ever braved a cold-weather city, you know about the monopoly black wool has on the coat market. Shake things up a bit with this high-necked Lawson wool jacket ($209, was $348). Puffed sleeves give off a European vibe, and you can ixnay the scarf with the help of the slouchy collar. Pair with skinny jeans or a dress for a totally metropolitan feel.
