Arguably one of the most important pieces in your fall wardrobe, a jacket is a no-fail layering staple that you can always lean on for that extra outfit "oomph" (and added warmth, of course). Have a simple jeans-and-tee combo that's missing something? Layer on a leather moto jacket for the finishing cool-girl touch. (Model Kaia Gerber proves a moto jacket's power here) Do you want to transition a more summery midi dress into the cooler season? Pair it with a fluffy, look-at-me-now puffer jacket, an outerwear trend that's officially cemented itself as one to watch this season. In short, a jacket can solve many of your wardrobe woes.
We know, however, that the market for jackets can be a little overwhelming. There are countless styles out there that make narrowing in on a few select pieces all the more difficult. And though we would certainly love to scoop up all the outwear options available (we can dream right?), we've decided to make your jacket spree slightly more navigable by highlighting the top five fall jacket styles we think you'll get the most mileage out of.
