If there's one article of clothing we absolutely love to break out at the first sign of cold weather, it's the ubiquitous sweater coat. A true goes-with-everything piece that serves as a multifunctional powerhouse, the sweater coat is at once stylish, cozy and versatile. It's also available in endless designs that range from solids and patterns to furs and stripes.
Transform your basic denim and boots ensemble into something a bit more luxurious with this Nic + Zoe Faux Fur Collar Sweater Coat ($196). The mere addition of the detachable fur collar brings a certain swankiness to your look.
One winter trend that never seems to expire is the Fair Isle pattern. It looks marvelous on the Express T-Shape Sweater Coat ($52.80), a chic patterned topper that offers a polished approach to casual style.
Though a wool or down coat is absolutely essential some days, other days call for something slightly lighter. Try the Halogen Sweater Coat ($45.90), a slightly voluminous topper that offers comfort in the form of nubby, marled yarn.
For convenience, nothing beats the practicality of an open-front topper that goes over just about anything. This Daisy Fuentes Sweater Coat ($32) features a stretchy ribbed texture and a sash at the waist for easy wear.
