Q: I love the look of anoraks, but I'm not sure how to wear them. Are they just for the weekend?
Definitely not. The season's new anorak is terrific because the jacket's nipped-in waist and midthigh length flatter everyone. Wear it like you'd wear a trenchcoat—over a chic leather dress for the office (left
), with a striped sweater and jeans for weekend errands, or with a lace top and skirt for date night. I love this version (below
) from Dressbarn. The small floral print is fun, feminine, and acts as a neutral, making the jacket super-versatile. The best part? It's only...wait for it...$40!
