"Glamour" magazine editor Suze Yalof-Schwartz shows three "basic" looks that are currently in stores and are easy to incorporate into your current wardrobe. And she puts Hannah Storm, Harry Smith and Tracy Smith to the test to see if they can tell which outfit is a discount and which is the designer.

The looks Yalof-Schwartz brings are a great coat with fur trim, an updated tweed suit, and a weekend sweater outfit.

Here is how game participants did:

Coat:
Fur was hot this season. It wasn't seen just on your traditional fur coats; fur, both real and faux, were added to jean jackets, suede, and wool coats. It gave everyone a rich look. It also gave fur a new life because it wasn't just for special occasions.

Outfit 1
Express Coat $168
Banana Republic Pants $118
Isaac Shoes $99

Total: $385.00

Outfit 2
Searle Coat $495
Ralph Lauren Pants $355
Stuart Weitzman Shoes $200

Total: $1050.00

Score
Hannah - 2 is discount
Harry - 2 is discount
Tracy - 2 is discount

Suit:
Suits are slowly making a comeback. This one is tied to the classic, lady-look, which was very popular this fall. It's also a reflection of the conservative work mood that is making a comeback through dress codes. Here we have an updated tweed suit. Tweed doesn't have to be boring. Yalof-Schwartz has two labels showing us that tweed can be cool.

Outfit 1
Escada Blazer $1300

Congratulations, Tracy! Beginner's luck? Perhaps, but just in case, the very competitive host Julie Chen joked, she may not be invited back to play.
