Need a spring coat to wear to work and on weekends

Q. For the past few years, I have been looking for a spring jacket that I can wear to work and still wear on the weekends. I have yet to see anything that really catches my eye. Can you please offer some insight?

A. I assume you are referring to outerwear and not a blazer or jacket intended to wear as part of your outfit. Your best option for a spring coat to wear to work and on weekends is one of our favorite wardrobe must-haves: the trench coat. Look for one that hits above your knee – it will easily pair with everything from work dresses and suits to casual jeans and cropped pants. We’re loving bright colors and pretty patterns this season, but basic black and khaki are nice options also.

Here are some styles you’ll want to wear 7 days a week:

    I’m seeking Spring/Summer shoes that are appropriate for a formal office environment and that do not look stuffy outside of the office. I live in the city where walking can not be avoided so they need to be comfortable enough to be worn all day (standing, seated, or walking) , stylish enough to be considered a bit sexy, and between 2 3/4 – 3.5″ high. Closed toe preferred or minimal toe. I’m flexible on color as long as they look good for summer.
