Let’s face it: the best part of autumn is jackets (sorry, fall foliage, apple picking, wool sweaters and pumpkin spice). With cooler weather on the horizon, we’re psyched to wear a few of the great ones that have come out this season. Here are three pieces we’ve got our eyes on for September…
THE TRENCH: What is it about a trench that makes your whole look come together? You could be wearing pajamas underneath, and you’d still look sexy and gorgeous. We are liking this double breasted one with a longer silhouette. (It comes in black, too.) Throw over trousers and a striped tee, and tuck messy hair under the collar.
THE BOMBER: We’ve been spotting bomber jackets all around town, and this silky number comes in a great dusty bronze that feels feminine. The military-inspired shape dresses up a comfy sweatshirt, culottes and clogs.
THE MOTO: Ah, the trusty leather jacket. It makes literally anything look cool. This one has classic moto details and a cropped shape — it’s also so buttery soft you’d never guess it’s faux. Pair with a black skirt for date night, and add matte red lipstick for drama.
Thoughts? What are you looking forward to wearing this fall?
