Outerwear is one of our favorite aspects of autumn. Crafted of luxe materials yet still relatively lightweight, the season’s silhouettes and styles make layering for chillier temperatures feel exciting. Here, we’ve rounded up 8 essential fall jackets that will elevate any outfit, from equestrian-inspired options to edgy motos.

The polished blazer

When you want to look polished, pick a blazer to top off your outfit. We love the crisp tailoring of the Smythe 3-button blazer (left) available from Tsalt and Alexandria, Virginia, and the luxe leather accents on the Smythe equestrian blazer (right) available from Scarpa in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The classic trench

A chic trench is a must in any closet, ideal for throwing on over any outfit—and combating inclement weather. The versatility of the classic black Ozma Carolina version (left) available from Beige in Little Rock, Arkansas and the reversible Pero version (right) available from Eloise in Charlottesville, Virginia make them perfect additions to one’s wardrobe.

The casual moto

If you’re in the mood to add a little edge to an outfit, only a moto will do. Enter: the chic recycled wool cropped peacoat (left) available from The Wardrobe in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the jewel-toned Atlas boucle moto jacket (right) available from Elitaire Boutique in Huntsville, Alabama.

The plaid topper

If you’re seeking a little pattern, there’s nothing more fitting for the season than plaid. The soft hues of the Molly Bracken tartan print coat (left) available from Hazel Twenty Boutique in Asheville, North Carolina and subtle print on the Oska Idun jacket (right) available from The Phoenix in Washington, D.C., will add interest to any outfit.
