Drapey satin in a luxurious ivory color is so versatile. Throw on a glamorous fuzzy coat when going out with the girls and layer a turtleneck over for the day.
It's all in the details with this one. The leafy print, split hem, front twist knot and sliver of cut-out make this a ridiculously stylish choice.
