Fall can be categorized as a season of changes: temperatures shifting with the rising and setting sun; weather which is unpredictable and ever-changing; leaves turning beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow; excited parents and children (not) filled with eager anticipation of the first day of school; and, for the fashion conscious among us, a time when summer clothes are shed and layering up comes in style.
Fall’s fickleness has had me in a Fall frenzy. In NYC, where weather changes by the minute (hot, sunny, foggy, rainy, freezing), each day is a challenge. The key to staying warm and trendy, whether it’s a freezing or fiery Fall day, is having the right top layer…different jackets for all of Fall. Do this, and Fall will be your friend rather than your foe!
This Fall, one jacket is simply not going to be enough. Luckily I think I have just as many trendy Fall jacket options, as possible climate changes… or at least I hope so. So for those hot, humid, sunny, breezy, chilly, foggy, drizzly, rainy, and downright cold days; I have a jean jacket, bomber, army, mixed media, leather, motorcycle, and trench coat waiting in my closet prepared for whatever Fall will throw at me.
So is fall a fickle foe making me crazy with all these changes? Hmm maybe more a fickle friend that has provided the need for stuff I love: more shopping and looking cute and trendy… how can I complain about that?
Check below for some killer fall jacket options at both splurge and steal prices that will have you prepared for it all this Fall!
Indian Summer? Layer a jean jacket over a cute sleeveless or short sleeve dress to stay cool in the Fall heat, while still remaining trendy and work/school appropriate!
For a crisp Fall day, layer one of these edgy and versatile bomber jackets with a cute sweater, dress, or skirt.
These are great casual light jackets for those breezy days. Pair one with a pair of jeans and flats or a casual dress. You can also layer over some cute sweaters for some extra warmth!
MIXED MEDIA JACKET
These jackets are great and will make you look ohhh soo fashionable. Depending on the mixed fabrics you can wear these jackets from anywhere from a crisp Fall day to a chilly Autumn night.
LEATHER JACKET: Leather is back this fall in a big way! Leather is everywhere and at very least you should own a cool leather jacket. There are a ton of leather jackets for the fall season in every shape, style, size and color. Try one of these cool colored ones or even a basic black to make any outfit whether casual day or dressier night have a cool edge to it!
Motorcycle jackets no matter the fabric instantly increase the edginess factor of any outfit and are possibly my favorite type of jacket. At age five I whined and begged to no avail for a leather motorcycle jacket… if a five-year-old knows the impact this jacket can make on your wardrobe, then it is definitely a must. A lighter fabric option like the one below can be worn as a light jacket or even a sweater. The tweed option below will provide a more refined edgy motorcycle-look and is a little heavier for those chillier days (tweed is big for fall and winter so this jacket is a great option for this season).
A trench coat is one basic staple in anyone’s wardrobe…well for those that have some drizzly/ rainy Fall days! If you are in the market for a new/ different one or don’t already own a trench, try one of these great options below! A trench coat is a classic option that can be paired with anything!
