50 Dream Fall Coats

If you're going to splurge on just one item of clothing this fall, make it a coat. Outerwear's the first element of your outfit everyone will see, after all, and a great wool, leather, shearling or fur coat can hide a multitude of sartorial sins underneath. So go ahead, wear your pajamas to the store. Just make sure they're layered beneath something fabulous—like any one of these 50 showstopping toppers.
