The Weinstein Company's Lifetime miniseries may be coming to an end, but annoyingly, winter is not. In the middle of our wardrobe's most meh season (my relationship with my head-to-shin puffer is truly love/hate), take a hint from the socialites of 19th-century Russia.

*The* Fur Coat

An Embellished Knit

Level up your basic office-friendly winter outfit with a bejeweled sweater. It's kind of like they did it back in the 1800s, but way more comfy.
