Similar to Ms. Rocha's coat, this piece would photograph better than a black coat.
Wear this out for aprés-ski cocktails and you'll stand out from the crowd.
This ivory beauty is begging to be photographed.
Channelling Victoria Beckham has never been easier.
Nobody said sleeves were mandatory!
Why not wear a fuchsia pea coat as a dress?
There's nothing conservative about this particular tweed piece, especially if paired with leather pants and sky-high platforms.
Texture is king this winter. This coat's subdued faux fur is perfect for ladies with rock and roll souls.
This sleek black coat is not messing around. It would look extra-sleek with cobalt blue pumps.
Imagine this coat buttoned up and paired with suede gogo boots.

As New York begins to freeze over (or so it feels), fashionable women face a conundrum: how do you stay warm while also photographing well?

Coco Rocha, Susan Lucci and Ellen Scarborough hit the red carpets last night as the temperatures dropped. All three of them used the same trick: they turned their flattering, double-breasted coats into red-carpet-ready frocks.

It’s a trick that works for women of any age and background. Scroll through our slideshow for some suggestions about how to make the look your own. It’s especially useful if you have any outdoor social outings with Instagram-happy friends coming up.
