Fall Jackets to Wear Now
Autumn has arrived, along with scarves, sweater and everything else we love about the season. And while it’s not yet warm enough for those winter coats, check out these stylish fall jackets to keep you cozy!
Leather sleeve bomber jackets
This trend emerged last year and it’s still going strong. My personal favorite is from Forever 21. This Chloe bomber jacket is also pretty fabulous (albeit at a higher price). Urban Outfitters has some nice affordable ones for both men and women.
Biker jackets are being seen on even the most prim and proper of D.C. residents. I’m loving this Armani Exchange jacket that combines the moto AND leather sleeve trends. Hoods on leather jackets are also a thing this season. This one from Free People has a detachable knit hood.
Speaking of hoods, parkas are looking mighty stylish these days. They’re usually lined and designed for cold weather and might even take you into winter. I’m loving this cute one by Madewell.
We keep hearing that ‘90s fashion is making a comeback. Channel your inner Kurt Cobain with grunge-influenced plaid, while still looking put-together. This plaid blazer-style jacket from BB Dakota is a good start.
