It feels like the majority of us are waiting with bated breath for those first days that really feel like fall, but perhaps you’re someone who wants to hold onto summer, white-knuckled and rejecting any mention of a PSL or cozy knit. The thing that will get you to accept fall with open arms? The once-a-year fall jackets.
Each season has its perks, but one of fall’s main ones is the styling options that come with a phenomenal jacket; the ones for the days when it’s too early for the bulky coats of winter, but it’s crisp enough that you need an added layer. It’s one of the best windows of time of the year, and it’s one that needs to be taken advantage of.
With beautiful tones, cozy textures, and a world of outfit options to create with them, fall 2023’s jackets are here, and they came to make a statement. One look at these and you’ll be packing your summer clothes away without so much as a batted eye.
Shirt & denim jackets
The shacket came onto the scene a couple years ago, and has since been a quintessential part of casual fall styling. Throw one on with jeans, your favorite sweater, and a pair of boots, and you’re good to go for any and all fall activities.
No fall is complete without a good leather jacket, regardless of if you opt for yours in a blazer, bomber, or classic moto style. They’re the investment piece that’s a gift that’ll keep on giving for years to come.
Our rule of thumb when it comes to blazers is that you simply cannot have too many. They’re a true staple that you can style an infinite amount of ways, all of which are automatically chic as hell. You can never go wrong with a classic one in a neutral hue that you know will never go out of style, but if you’re looking to add something different to your arsenal, opt for one in a pop of color or with a cropped fit.
The trench coat has proven time and time again that it will always be considered one of the best outerwear options you can wear. It emulates a French chicness—even when paired with basics like a tee and jeans—that makes it an it-piece for fall every single year. Our editors wear our classic, khaki-colored ones on repeat, but this season, they’re popping up everywhere with new textures (like denim) that make them feel brand-new.
If you’re trying to figure out what the hottest jacket of fall 2023 is going to be, placing your bets on the bomber jacket would be the right call. While they’ve taken a few-year break from the fashion circuit, they came back in a big way last fall, and since then have proven they’re here to stay. From wool ones to preppy, letterman-like jackets, there are countless options to choose from this season.
When the weather is that just-right temperature that requires an extra layer, you want to make sure you have a cozy option that you look forward to wrapping yourself up in; the ones that you keep on the hook by your door 24/7 because it’s the one you reach for most. Whether they’re styled with a pair of jeans and sneakers to meet up with friends or leggings and a sweatshirt to go for a lunch-break walk, these options won’t let you down.
If your fall vibe is quiet luxury and your shopping strategy is to add the most timeless pieces possible to your wardrobe, a tweed jacket is your best bet. Depending on how you style it, you can make yours work for your office days and weekends off alike.
