Women of any age can wear classic, sophisticated looks, and Stacy, Lloyd and Charla have assembled their favorites. Stacy's look includes a black sheath dress, a frame bag and a camel hair coat. "This look is timeless. There is no shoulder pad involved, and there is no long jacket. A camel hair coat is like a trench for winter. … It will never go out of style. It works on every skin tone," Stacy says. "This perfect sheath dress, you can raise the visual center of gravity again with a belt if you need to, and that raises the eyeline a little bit if you've got a little bit of a tummy. And fishnets? Classic."

The luxury version of this look—which costs a total of $5,550—includes a Burberry coat for $725, an Armani dress for $1,170, Miu Miu patent peep-toe shoes for $450, a belt for $85 and a Bottega Veneta bag for $3,120, all from Saks Fifth Avenue.

For a more affordable version at a total of $794, Nordstrom carries a camel hair coat from Michael by Michael Kors for $268, a Nine West black dress for $109, a belt for $30, Enzo Angiolini peep-toe shoes for $89 and a Monsac croc frame bag for $298.

"You can find these trends at any price point, and they are investment pieces," Stacy says. "Lloyd was saying before, buy your coat before you buy anything else. If you have a great coat, a great bag and a great shoe, you can pop all your old clothes into a new season."
