Transitional weather — or those days when the weather can't seem to make up its mind about what season it is — calls for layers that can keep you warm, but also look good if you need to keep them on all day. During a recent, rainy Milan Fashion Week, Sarah Harris rocks a raincoat like the Vogue Fashion Editor she is. A belted, latex leather raincoat brings edge and polish to easy-to-wear cropped skinny jeans. Sarah smartly keeps her accessories in the black family, for a head-to-toe fierce look.
