When it comes to outerwear, we don’t mess around. We need coats and jackets that can keep us warm and stylish, and we need a few of them!

Thankfully, the current season’s offerings are abounding with cool, creative jackets that have our closets rejoicing. To get more specific, the four styles below have been spotted on some of our favorite insiders in inspiring ways that, as a result, have made us ready to add them to our collection.

See below for four jacket styles fashion girls are loving right now, and if you’re into them, shop our picks to get the look.

The Jacket: Velvet


Style du Monde

Nothing screams "I'm in the know" more than a velvet blazer. It's subtly sexy and plays nicely with other textures, like denim and silk. Also, it works in the office and at the party, which is a win in our book.

This rich purple would make us feel regal through and through.

This slim shape is ultra flattering.

Style with wide-leg trousers and sneakers for a cool girl look.

The Jacket: Bomber


Style du Monde

The bomber jacket is the gift that keeps on giving. This outerwear item has been a favorite with the fashion crowd for a couple of seasons now, and for fall it seems the way to wear it is with several layers. Load 'em up!

You definitely won't blend in wearing this jacket.

Update your basic black bomber with one that has grommets.

Proof that bomber jackets can work for those with feminine style.

The Jacket: Military


Collage Vintage

It can be tricky to pull off a military jacket without looking like you're in a costume, so keep in mind that styling it with staples like blue jeans and pumps can be the perfect way to balance everything out.

Leaving the buttons undone at the bottom (as seen here) is a great elongating style trick.

Wear this one over your party dress.

Style with a crisp shirt and slouchy slacks.

The Jacket: Puffer


Style du Monde

Pass the puffer, please! We can't get enough of these shapely statement jackets. For an update on yours, follow Emmanuelle Alt's lead and cinch a belt around the waist.

This one is large enough to add in a few layers beneath without looking bulky.

This statement collar is tres futuristic.

Nothing beats an olive-and-orange color combination.
