There are always those pieces in your closet that, no matter what your mood is beforehand, the second you put them on, it acts as an instant mood booster, making you look and feel good.

Whether it’s over a pair of sweatpants or a knit dress, the Matrix-inspired coat will have everyone looking put together, even if you just rolled out of bed. (Trust me—I’ve tried.)
