Cheap Thrill! A Plaid Coat to Brave the Chill

Stylish steals to get you through tough times... Ok, so as of tomorrow we're officially on the right side of the calendar to start counting down the days until spring... but there's still a while to go (March 20, people). In the meantime, if you're in need of a little mid-winter wardrobe boost, may we suggest this tartan three-quarter sleeve jacket from Gap? It's a classic cover-up with a totally modern cut, and at a mere $54.99, this is an excusable purchase, even for those of us who have a coat (or 5) too many.
