Best Bet: Randall Coat

With October days away, it’s time to invest in a new winter coat. Steven Alan’s banded Randall coat is a piece of outerwear that will last you beyond a single season. Made of made of heavy Melton wool, the coat doesn’t sacrifice warmth for style. Thick blanket stripes add a pop of color, while the light gray base is a welcome departure from ubiquitous black and navy. Apart from adding a jaunty touch, the thick shawl collar will also keep you cozy and dry in windy weather. Though it’s still full price at Steven Alan, you can snag it for 30 percent off through October 9 at Anthropologie.
