Q: Fall ushers in cooler weather and we have the need to add jackets or outwear to our looks. What is the best way to choose an outwear piece for evening that compliments rather than detracts from your look?
A+O: Look for tailoring and fit with an emphasis on embellishments. A+O jackets possess a femininity and glamour that perfectly compliment any dress or gown.
