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 the jackets. It’s too early for the bulky coats of winter, but it’s crisp enough that you need an added layer, and that window is one that needs to be taken advantage of.
With rich tones and cozy textures and a world of outfit options to create with them, fall 2021’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.
Blazers are considered a constant in terms of fall wear, but this year, there’s a twist: They’re a bit shorter than usual. Blazers that hit near the waist are not only the hottest take on the classic jacket but also one of the hottest pieces of fall fashion, period.
There’s nothing like a fur moment for fall, and this year, fur is a bit shaggier than usual. With a bit more of a disheveled texture, faux fur is making jackets interesting and giving a 2021 twist to the classic shearling teddy coat. It gives a bit of excitement to any look and is easy to pull off.
There’s something that feels nostalgic about bomber jackets, no? Whether it’s because of their resemblance to the classic letterman jacket or just because they always tend to circulate back into style, they feel like a piece of fall that we’re always happy to come back to.
In 2020, all anyone could talk about (or wear, for that matter) was the teddy coat, and for good reason. But this year, shearling is a bit more understated, with jackets having embellishments of it near the seams, collar, and cuffs instead of being the overall material. The result? A natural feeling of glam that we’re totally on board with.
We all probably have a puffer or two in our wardrobes, but this year, they’re a little more exciting than we’re used to. In fun patterns, saturated colors, and oversized fits, they’re the jacket you’re going to want to wrap yourself in day in and day out.
