Swap out a standard blazer for a warm marigold cocoon jacket to sneak some color into your work day. A sexy move that won't raise flags with HR? Pair with a chunky knit turtleneck and wear navy opaque tights to minimize the shock factor of the slit, but finish off the look with a fierce snakeskin stiletto pump.

A sleeveless camel coat over Breton stripes conjures Continental nonchalance. Up the of-the-moment factor with wild-card extras, like a shrunken satchel with a touch of suede, buckle booties.
