Ahhh fall. Pumpkin spice and all things nice. We’ve missed you. The unanimously agreed coziest time of year is rolling around and whether your preference is dressing like a blanket, binging horror movies, or consuming an alarming amount of cinnamon chai, we’re here for it. Whatever your outdoor plans involve, wrap up in style with fall jackets we’d argue require a space in your closet this season. We’re talking fringe, puffer, plaid and a wild card or two. Grab a coffee, some candy corn or a hefty slice of sweet potato pie and let’s get into it.
Oversized Plaid Shackets
If fall had a flag, it’d be flannel, am I right? No fall outfit is complete without an oversized plaid shacket, fit for 8-10 bodies, worn for one. This piece is a sweet recipe of dreamy red, brown and orange hues paired with silky soft brushed cotton and a cozy oversized fit. Nail the lumberjack look and rock with a simple racerback, wide-leg jeans and chunky sneakers. Or, turn heads and layer over a corduroy mini dress, tights and ankle boots. Is it shirt? Is it a jacket? Is it a tent? No one knows. But we do know she belongs in your basket.
Cropped Puffer Jackets
Last year the longline puffer had its moment. And it was great. But the crop is back (wave hello) and she’s here to stay. When it comes to cute fall jackets, the cropped puffer gives it all. Warm and comfy with a hint of a fine figure buried in there somewhere. Find your nearest pumpkin patch and style a blue cropped puffer jacket with a jersey crop top and some ‘90s wide-leg jeans. Why not throw on a flannel underneath for good measure? When your heart belongs to the puffer coat but you’ve been known to resemble the caterpillar from A Bug’s Life (hey, we dig it), the cropped puffer jacket is for you.
Leather Jackets (Faux is cool too)
Yes, a LJ is timeless. Throw in rich, warm hues and an embellishment (or four) and you’ve got a strong contender for the best jacket for fall. Made to be thrown over ANY item in your closet, we think she best serves the fall look layered over a chunky roll neck, skinny jeans, and a faux suede knee high boots. But if you’re swapping a hot choc for a spiced apple martini (hello fancy plans), team a brown leather jacket with a cowl neck mini slip dress and heeled sock boots. Fringe welcomed.
Longline Coloured Blazers
You’re the candy apple of our eye in this jacket. Switch up any ‘meh’ kinda outfit by playing with tailoring, structured shoulders and boxy silhouettes. The ultimate fall coats and jackets number, rock an oversized boxy blazer in a rich autumn accent orange to make whatever you’re wearing underneath POP. Or, shake up those fall tones and throw on a pink shoulder padded blazer over your fave LBD for a night out with your other half. Whether your plans involve the office, apple picking, or singing your heart out at a karaoke bar– a statement blazer has well and truly got you (and your top half) covered.
Western Fringe Jackets
Howdy, cowgirl. Say hello to fringe. For the days that require taking life by the reigns, dress your torso in a fringe leather jacket. Fall coats are cute, but we don’t always wanna walk around like a big old teddy bear. So when you’re keen to keep toastie but still look cute, team a relaxed fringe jacket with statement flares and a vintage tee. Or, dial up the heat with a midi satin slip dress, slinky suede sock boots, and wispy curtain bangs. Brigitte Bardot approved.
