Tres Chic Style Mail....

Dear Tres Chic Style,

I am a 2nd year law student with a limited shopping budget. I want a really nice coat for the winter season. Can you help me find the perfect coat for day and evening at a moderate price.

Hi Tammy,
A stylish coat is an important fashion statement since it's one of the first pieces people see when you walk through the door. Designers have given us endless options in fit, fabric and hues. Fall 2008 & Winter 2009 promises to bring fabulous designs that you'll never even want to take off.

Take a look......

Winter white has always been a favorite of mine. This VIA A-Line Coat is modern with a classic twist. Perfect when paired with an over sized handbag! Victoria's Secret, $149

Taking a peacoat to another level...... This Kimchi Blue Ruffle Peacoat can easily transition you from day to evening. Urban Outfitters, $138

There's nothing like a dash of plaid to update your look..... Bloomingdales, $320

Who says you can't keep it stylish & chic for under $100? I'm totally smitten with this tweed ankle-length sweater coat. This is perfect for those chilly evenings in New York. Thanks to the fabulous folks over at Newport-News,it can be yours for $89.

Usher in the Fall with a splash of color. If your accustomed to playing it safe in the outerwear department. This is the perfect choice for you..... Nordstrom, $168
