As such, I'm always on the hunt for a great tailored jacket to carry me through fall. Not only does this third piece keep me warm as the temperatures drop, but it adds structure and polish to any look.

Vine Bloom Open Front Jacket ($158) in Blush/Rose/Black
A tailored jacket doesn't have to be dark—or all that tailored. Case-in-point: this floral print style evocative of a kimono.

Hollywood Wool-Crepe Jacket ($1,905) in Blush
There's an element of '40s Hollywood glamour to this blush, double-breasted version by Rick Owens. I'll be wearing it with floor-grazing pajama pants and t-strap pumps to play up that vibe.

Nowton Jacket ($1,850) in Black
This blazer is all business! The nipped-in waist and longer length are a touch Edwardian, so I'll balance the proportions with a sleek stiletto heel.
