Look for Less: Katie Couric
When it comes to classic style, Katie Couric is as noteworthy as the newsmakers she reports on everyday. What's the key to her look? Menswear-inspired staples--like a trim button-down shirt and great-fitting blazer--softened with a couple feminine accessories. And the really good news is that crisp basics like these can be found at every price point.

Traveling during the holiday season? Choose an outfit like Katie's, built around a flattering pair of dark jeans and slim oxford shirt, for a look that's always first class. And whether you're en route to somewhere that's balmy or bitter cold, don't forget a roomy bag in a rich autumn shade (like this plum tote) and a great pair of shades.
