Will it work in Washington?

For our last edition of our “Will it work in Washington?” take on New York Fashion week, we look to the fall 2012 collection of Joseph Altuzarra.

We wrap up our series of dispatches from New York Fashion Week with a stunner from the Joseph Altuzarra collection. Altuzarra clearly gets that it’s every woman’s dream to feel comfortable while looking stylish. This body-hugging, double-breasted peacoat with a black fox collar and leg-lengthening velvet trousers sends the perfect “I’m a power player” message without the severity too often found along K Street.

Would it work in Washington? Our bet: YES. Cast your vote in the poll below.

TIP:All that’s required to pull off this look, whether heading to the office or antique-shopping in Georgetown, is a confident, shoulders-back stride.
