1. A very sophisticated wool-blend Lauren Ralph Lauren coat that — although it's an investment — will look like you spent way more on it.

Promising review: "Beautiful coat! I get so many compliments. The coat fits perfectly. I did not have to order a larger size. I like to feel comfortable and not have a coat that feels tight. Very elegant and classic. I normally wear a 6 and that is the size I ordered." —Pharmgirl10Price: $146.90 (originally $220, available in sizes 2-16, petite sizes 2-16, and in pebble and gray)

Promising review: "I've been using for three weeks and I already see an improvement in my deep forehead wrinkles. I'm excited to see what kind of results I get after the full 6-8 weeks.

16. A plaid Avec Les Filles wool-blend coat so you can stay warm and on trend this fall.

Promising review: "Tried this on as an impulse at the sale, and it went straight into the 'buy' pile. It is a wonderful, warm, soft wool, rich in color, and the fabric feels very rich, very expensive. This coat is unlined, but the interior finishing is complete and beautifully done. I like that the coat is unlined: While the wool will be warm for the cooler weather, the coat will breathe and be comfy to wear around the city. The fit is true to size, with room in the arms and body to wear this over winter-weight clothing. While this is menswear-inspired, it's got great feminine details. What may not be easy to spot in the photo is that the buttonhole on the lapel is trimmed in fuchsia pink, and the interior seams are piped with the same. Whether over casual clothing or over businesswear, this is going to be a great coat come winter. So happy to see this quality of garment in plus sizes!!" —GeekyBunnyPrice: $229.90 (originally $345, available in sizes 1X-3X and XS-XXL)
