But now that we’ve hit the mid-season point — there’s no turning back now — scoring a prime piece of outerwear should be high on your priority list. There’s likely a classic black car coat or camel-colored cocoon style holdin’ it down in your closet already, but every girl needs a scene-stealing topper (maybe even two) that can turn up the heat on basics, GNO getups and on-the-job attire in two seconds flat.
