"Head-to-toe knits were all over the runways, but the sweater coats are far more wearable than the two-piece knit sweater and pant sets. This option [love the crystal accents] grants you an outer wear alternative that can be easily paired with a cocktail dress or denim."

Nylon-blend sweater coat with crystals, acetate-blend dress and leather shoes, Viktor & Rolf. Rose gold earrings, Arik Kastan.
