After: Cropped Jacket

If that pretty coat didn’t get out much this spring, crop it above the waist so you can wear it year-round with jeans or a skirt. Be aware that the placement of the side pockets affects how much you can shorten a jacket, says Guillermo Molina of Guillermo Couture, in New York City. Your tailor will have to cut above or below the pockets.
 
 Cost*: $45 to $80.
 
*Note: Alteration costs vary from city to city.
