One of my favorite pieces for Fall is a trench coat. I love how chic it can make an outfit look. While browsing In Style magazine, I saw a lovely ad for Valentino that featured this ruffle trench coat. While it is stunning, sadly the $1,195 price tag makes it way out of reach for me. So as usual, I set out to find a more affordable alternative. My search was not in vain as I found a great substitute by Elie Tahari for $148.

Now this is more in my price range, and I kind of like it better than the Valentino. It comes in black and burgundy as well as the ivory color pictured.
