Why we love it: Compared to dainty dresses and feminine skirts, a coat can feel so . . . boring. But this sweet style, whether supersaccharine or made for the working woman, is far from masculine.
How to wear it: Experiment with your tying strategy to mix things up. Casually knotted can read laid-back Saturday, while a proper tie or hook feels all buttoned-up. Already own a coat this shape? Experiment with a regular belt!
