Many people might not agree, but I personally love in-between weather because it’s ideal for layering. My skin might not appreciate the changing weather, but that’s another story. I like mixing and matching pieces like camisoles and tees with different sweaters and jackets. I find it fun to add another element of layering to my ensembles to take the chill off after a hot summer. You can always add a layer if it gets cooler, or take one off if the temperature rises. Here are 5 chic fall jackets you will want to own and add to your wardrobe. And you won’t have to spend a fortune!
5 Chic Fall Jackets For Less
Leopard and Denim Jackets
This trendy denim jacket from Levi’s has a slightly more relaxed silhouette to accommodate multiple layers underneath. It’s reversible, so it’s like you’re getting two jackets for the price of one! It can be worn so the leopard print lines the denim or worn with the denim hidden and the leopard print taking center stage with chic black quilted sleeves. It would look fabulous with many different looks, especially with black pants, booties and a bold red lip.
I love this edgy biker jacket from Topshop! The khaki color keeps it unique and differentiates it from your standard black leather jacket. The shearling (yes, it’s faux) keeps it looking sophisticated and age appropriate. I adore the belt and the zip pockets are really convenient. You could toughen up a sweater dress and tights with this jacket, or you could keep it casual and wear it with jeans and sneakers.
Faux Fur Fall Jackets
If you’re into wearing cozy and soft clothes when the temperatures dip, this faux fur jacket from Urban Outfitters is perfect! It comes in five colors and has a funky zipper pull that zips all the way up. This would look great paired with leggings on days when you just want to be cozy, or it would look chic as your jacket over a dress for an evening out.
Simple Quilted Jackets
If you prefer simple styles without trends like faux fur or tough biker styles, then an updated barn jacket might be right up your alley! This distressed, quilted and slightly slouchy jacket from Free People is the perfect balance of relaxed yet polished. I am swooning over the oversized buttons and large pockets. It comes in three colors as well. This jacket would look amazing thrown over a casual outfit like boots and denim or equally cool juxtaposed with trousers, heels and a topknot.
This jacket from Anthropologie is unique and totally elevates the idea of wearing a pullover style. The texture is so unique and elegant. It looks like you’re wearing feathers and definitely warrants a second look. And there’s a bonus! It comes in a ton of different sizes for any body type. It’s sure to garner lots of compliments. Wear it with a relaxed look like denim or black pants. You’ll effortlessly make your outfit a lot more interesting with this topper.
Styling Tips for Layering Fall Jackets
1. Don’t buy a jacket that’s too tight. You will need to accommodate multiple layers underneath! Order the next size up if you’re on the fence.
2. Do mix and match colors and prints. Just be sure the colors complement each other and nothing clashes too badly. Full length mirrors are your friend before walking out the door!
3. Don’t overplay the patterns. If you’re wearing a piece with a lot of texture, make sure you don’t overdo it on the patterns. A busy texture definitely counts as a pattern.
4. Do mix your styles. You can wear something edgy with something more feminine for balance.
5. Don’t layer it on too thick. Ensure your silhouette isn’t exaggerated everywhere! No one wants to look like the Michelin Man in too many layers.
Sure, this in-between weather might be annoying, but at least you can have a little fun with your wardrobe! Shop these jackets to up your layering game.
