Market Watch: Armani Exchange

Armani Exchange wool peacoat Graphic Flutter dress

It's a strange time to be thinking about coats, but eventually Fall will come. And finding the right coat is my shopping nightmare. I get overloaded with options and at the last minute, when it's already snowing out, I pick whatever's nearest. But this year I'm making a list, and Armani Exchange's wool peacoat ($225) is on it. It's simple, cut to flatter, and looks more like a wool blazer than a boring old peacoat.

The seasonal concussion I have these days (looking at Fall but having to dress for Spring) continued with the dress options at A|X. They're light, airy, and so perfect for right now. Alas, I have to wait until July to pick one up. The Graphic Flutter dress ($98) is a fun post-work or cocktail dress. What's a couple months of waiting? If only I had a modicum of patience.

Items are available in Armani Exchange stores starting in July.
