Outerwear should never be an afterthought when it comes to your outfit, especially with cooler weather on the way! This fall layering has never been easier thanks to the countless array of options—from vests to jackets, duster coats to capes, and even ponchos. Here are 10 styles to help spice up your outerwear style for under $100:
Four Pocket Utility Jacket: $85
Outerwear can often feel like you’re adding bulk to your body but not with the drawstring waist of this jacket by Topshop, which also features playful details like tortoiseshell buttons and roomy front pockets. The military green hue is perfect for fall.
Prairie Check Rabato Coat: $79
This draped coat is super soft and features one of the most popular prints for this fall–checks! It’s roomy enough to fit a sweater underneath but also fitted to still look chic.
Quilted Fleece-Lined Vest: $29.95
One transition piece you will want to add to your wardrobe (if you don’t have one already) is fleece-lined vest. This budget-friendly version from Old Navy comes in seven gorgeous fall shades (think yellow, maroon, navy, army green, etc.). Throw it on over a crisp white button shirt or even a turtleneck, and you’re set!
Blush Print Hooded Poncho: $79.95
Ponchos are quite versatile and can be worn either dressy or casual and you can find them in a multitude of prints, patters, and fabrics. This blush and cream version from Lulu’s is a perfect example, plus it has a hood for extra coziness. Add a belt to the look to give more shape to your figure!
Beacon Hill Breakfast Cape: $84.99
Capes can be intimidating. (Hello, Sherlock Holmes and Superman!) Thankfully, brands are making it easier than ever to rock this look without feeling like a fictional character. Capes like this one from Modcloth add drama to a look and are surprisingly cozy and warm! Complete your look with unexpected accessories, like a wide brim felt hat and bold lip.
Flight Bomber Jacket: $89.95
Aviation inspired bomber jackets are timeless, casual, and effortless. I love the faux-fur hood of this version, which adds warmth. Plus, the dark green color pairs well with almost anything. You’ll wear this piece for years to come and never feel outdated!
Genuine Suede Fringe Jacket: $54.90
One of the top trends of the season is fringe. You’ll see it everywhere—shoes, bags, socks, and especially jackets. Fringe adds an instant pep in your step, and I love the way it moves when you walk. This particular style from Forever 21 comes in two colors—black and tan. Add a tank or t-shirt, skinny jeans, and over-the-knee boots to complete the look.
Tan Long Blazer Coat: $76
A great investment for work or weekend is a classic tan blazer coat. Beyond being functional, it’s incredibly sleek and fashionable—an easy piece to transition from day to evening!
Quilted Jacket: $59.99
Quilting adds immediate textual interest to your look. This version by H&M is a great price, but also has a fantastic stitching pattern that won’t overwhelm the rest of your outfit.
Chevron Tassel Cardigan: $20.26
Who doesn’t love chevron print? I’m obsessed with this tassel cardigan by SheInside, which is less than $21. Such a steal! Pair this piece with a comfy white t-shirt, ripped boyfriend, or flared jeans and a low fringe boot to complete the look. Toss on a wide brim navy hat for the perfect finishing touch!
