We know some people lament the end of summer, but by mid-August we’re already eagerly anticipating the arrival of autumn, aka layering season. In addition to the start of school, brilliant color, and a welcome briskness to the air, fall presents the opportunity to invest in jackets that take any outfit to the next level, whether the coat in question is a stylish piece that can instantly dress up jeans and a t-shirt or the perfect finishing touch to an already polished look. Here, we’ve rounded up 22 of our favorite fall-ready jackets, from classic trenches to studded denim to sharp military styles and more.
