“A biker jacket has become somewhat of a fall wardrobe staple, but I’ve always been hesitant to go there. Well, not this year!

Let the edgy work-chic fun begin!” — Charli Penn, Relationships Editor @ManWifeDog

I love the dramatic effect of a cape; it ups the ante on even the simplest look. You can also throw on as many layers as your heart desires underneath without worrying if you'll be able to close your coat. I love Terra's new take on the raincoat with their sheer cape." ––Reneise Francis, Market Editor @RayFrancie
