One of the many great things about the fall season is that for many of us, it's just another excuse to go shopping! Yes, that's right. As the temperature begins to drop, you've probably noticed that you need some cool-weather basics, right? After all, fashionistas know that one major faux pas is wearing a jacket or coat that is from last season.
And just when you thought that you were going to be left out in the cold without any ideas on what you should buy, InStyle.com came to the rescue. The list below gives cool-weather essentials that are just as fashionable as they are practical (did we mention they are all convertible items so you get multiple looks out of one piece?):
1) Scotch & Soda Two-Layer Parka – $385
Should you choose to wear the metallic undercoat, you'll notice what a dazzling boost the embroidered anorak gets.
2) Veronica Beard Coatdress – $1695
Did you know that when you purchase this coatdress, you can wear it as a cropped jacket, sleeveless dress or a trench? The bright red color looks fabulous with Cesare Paciotti's black suede open-toe boots, sold by Dellamoda.com. We're an online retailer that sells designer shoes, handbags and accessories that are 100 percent authentic and sold for less than what you would pay at a department store.
3) Mackage Zip-Off Coat – $790
