GET THE LOOK: If your wardrobe is filled with all the must-have timeless foundation pieces, then what's next? The next level! As in: why not branch out a bit by trying trendproof silhouettes in more trendy fabrications. Here, the color and shape of this shift never go out of fashion, but the leather definitely adds some edge. For animal appeal, a bootie in a complementary brownish leopard print is feral & fun, and plays off against the print of the satchel and chevron stripe of the blanket coat (which we showed how to wear in this weekend-chic look). Tie one an elegant gray silk scarf, and off you go, sexy mama.
