Classic Casual: Sienna Miller's Camel Coat and Layered Sweater Look for Less

Timeless and chic, camel coats are essential staples in any woman's wardrobe. Sienna Miller shows off how to style the wool topper with cozy layers — perfect for the colder months. The longline silhouette creates a lean look when paired with skinny jeans, and her burgundy loafers add a pop of color to an overall neutral ensemble.

Can you guess which sneaker costs more?

Rag & Bone look for less

While shopping at Sears today I spotted another Rag & Bone "Talia" sweater lookalike, this time by Bongo. Find it in the juniors section, available in either black or white on clearance now for $21.99. So interesting to see this trend get copied everywhere, trickle-down style.
