Up and down the East Coast, it's almost impossible to predict what type of weather you're going to get day-to-day through the fall season. Don't get me wrong, I have no complaints about this gorgeous breezy New York City weather but the question remains: How do you dress accordingly? Well, thanks to this perfect transitional coat by Massimo Dutti, I'm set. It's just warm enough and pairs perfectly with all my other must-have fall items, like plaid shirts, fringe booties and a studded backpack. And though it's been more than a few years since I've been able to call myself a student, I'm more than happy to relive my school-days aesthetic through fashion choices instead of homework.
