I think this is straightforward enough, right? If you’ve chosen to read this story, then you too have probably struggled with finding the perfect outerwear for the in-between season of fall—and I get why. It’s not too hot, not too cold, and getting your hands on a jacket that’s "just right” isn’t always the easiest. Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s not possible. All it takes is a little patience and research and, luckily, that’s what you have me for.
But honestly, putting the fact that it’s literally my job aside, I’d probably be looking into this for my own purposes right about now anyway, so we can chalk this one up as a win-win. From blazers to shackets to trenches, below you’ll find twenty-five fall-ready jackets (and light coats) that can easily be your go-tos come autumn, and possibly into winter, too. To get started shopping all my picks at a range of price points, simply keep scrolling.
In winter, this will be so useful for layering, too.

I love how this black denim jacket looks with blue jeans.
The less-common-but-still-classic checked trench is definitely worth considering as well.
I wouldn't mind the matching shorts, either.
Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently senior market editor. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
