Cover Girls

Take two, our latest crop of fall coats, this time for the ladies.
Whereas some retail pursuits can seem like hard labor, the quest for winter coat salvation is entirely different. No question, the right one&mdasah;from wearability to versatility—has the ability to transform. Because, no matter what's going on underneath, a well-fitting jacket can single-handedly sum up your style in 10 seconds or less. That might seem like pressure, but not since we've sought a bunch that fulfill multiple Top Coat requirements. A lightweight but still cozy, tailored version? Check. A man-tailored pea-coat expertly fashioned for a woman? Check. The super-warm parka that actually looks feminine? Check. If only every search could be so simple.
