Even though it rarely dips below sixty degrees here in LA, I can’t help but get excited to pull out all of my fall jackets! There’s just something about the first few days of fall that makes me excited for the colder weather to come! It’s still really hot here in LA, but I like to switch up my wardrobe for the new season. (Can you believe that it was ninety degrees this weekend???) The first pieces that I reach for when fall finally arrives are jackets. Thankfully the five jackets that I can’t get enough of this season come in lots of different weights for all climates. (And they make amazing layering pieces!)
1. Bomber Jacket
My first go-to fall jacket is the bomber. This style has been everywhere recently, and it’s so perfect for the first days of fall, since it’s a bit lighter. I love bomber jackets because they add such a cool, casual element to any look. I like wearing mine to dress down a nicer outfit like a lace dress and heels or just with a plain tee and sneakers. Plus they are so comfy! This season I’ll be wearing my Forever 21 bomber jacket on repeat!
2. Leather Jacket
This one is a classic! A leather jacket is a must in everyone’s wardrobe! This is by far my favorite leather jacked I scored on sale from the YSL outlets in Italy. (Find similar one here!) Leather jackets are definitely an investment piece, so whenever you see a good one on sale, it’s totally worth it! There aren’t very many outfits that couldn’t be improved with a dose of tough-girl chic! I wear mine with casual jeans, flirty dresses, and everything in between! Sometimes I drape mine over my shoulders for an “off-duty” look.
3. Denim Jacket
90’s vibes ahead! I’m all about denim jackets and thankfully, it looks like they’re here to stay. Like a bomber, denim jackets are great for casual, everyday looks. (You can see how I wore mine in Paris here!) Since it never gets really cold in Los Angeles, I usually wear mine as outerwear, but they also make an awesome middle layer. Just a little bit of denim peeking out between a chunky knit and a heavy coat looks so cool! One of my favorite parts about this denim jackets is how they get better with age, like a good pair of jeans! (The one I’m wearing here is from Madewell but isn’t available anymore, here is a good option!)
4. Trench Coat
The trench is one of those closet staples that will never truly go out of style. A trench coat will always have that vintage, classic charm that dresses up any look! I wear mine with anything from a formal dress to jeans and a tee—I can’t help but feel chic while wearing a trench! Leave your trench loose and unbuttoned for undeniable hints of French-girl cool or tie it up for a sophisticated and mysterious vibe! This one is from the WhoWhatWear Target collection and I can’t wait to rock mine this Fall!
The last on my must-have list of fall jackets is a blazer. Even though blazers are usually associated with work wear, I like to wear mine over more casual outfits. You can see how I wore this blazer from Storets over a cute romper here and with a casual summery look in this post! The blazer that I’m wearing is sold out, but you can find a similar one here. Blazers are so versatile and they dress up any outfit!
