Fall is in full swing guys. I guess that’s pretty obvious given all the apple, pumpkin, and/or fall foliage pics blowing up on Instagram right now. Definitely not mad about it, since it’s that perfect time of year where I’m neither sweating nor freezing my ass off. To put it simply: it’s jacket season and to celebrate, I’m sharing what I think are the five must have pieces for for fall.
Trench Coats: If you don’t have a trench coat in your closet, put it at the top of your shopping list immediately. You can never go wrong with a classic color and length, but if you already own one, then switch it up with a seasonal shade or a fresh cropped cut.
Utility Jackets: Also known as army jackets or field jackets. I swear, there’s at least 2-3 people on my team at work wearing one at all times. I’ve been rocking the same olive green jacket for nearly half a decade, but have my eye on this updated version from J.Crew. Barbour also makes some great, high-quality options if you’re ready for a splurge (sigh, if only I had half a grand to blow).
Faux Fur Vests: This is more a winter wardrobe workhorse, but I love being able to wear fur vests as my only outer layer while the temps still allow. Black and tan options will get a whole lotta wear, but I have my eye on this deep dark brown vest.
Sweater Coats: What do you get when you combine a sweater with a coat? The most comfortable layer you’ll wear this season. I’ve heard some people/brands refer to it as a “coatigan.” Super cute name for a super cute style. LOFT has my favorite options, in spacedye, colorblock and grandpa-inspired options.
Ponchos: Last, but certainly not least. I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of ponchos on your IG feed (with a few courtesy of yours truly). The one I’ve worn all season is currently on major sale, but Nordstrom has some great options for $38. They’re perfect to wrap yourself in for at the office, on the airplane or just hanging at home.
