The crisp autumn air calls for none other than a gorgeous Leslie Tessler cape (and perhaps a mug of hot apple cider). Founded in 2011, Leslie incorporates Peruvian alpaca, Italian cashmere, and French woven silk into her line to create luxurious, heirloom-quality creations. I fancy the fuchsia cape to wear with matching lipstick and leopard flats (what else?), but I urge you to explore the rest of her collection online.
If you’re updating your winter wardrobe with just one item this year, try a classic felt coat with leather sleeves (either real or faux). It adds just the right amount of irreverence to go from work to weekend with ease. Better yet, you don’t have to invest a paycheck to try it out. The version from the Buffalo Jeans clothing store (left) is only $158.
