For partially spending most of the year in lockdown, the time has whizzed us by. We thought this year was never going to end (with all the unfortunate happenings), but alas, we have approached the end of September and start of Autumn. Bid adieu to your summer and monsoon wardrobe as it is time to switch to clothes for Fall. Depending on which city you are based in, you might experience the temperatures differently. Nevertheless, it is time to style those winter clothes, especially your jackets and coats.
The season is all about layering and playing around with your warm clothes. And with the variety of different jacket styles available, Fall fashion is going to be a lot of fun. Even if it’s just a masked walk with a friend or a quick trip for some errands. Fall jackets are versatile and trendy enough for every occasion, so you will get plenty of use out of them. Cosy, gorgeous and stylish—you will be spoiled for choice with blazers, trench coats, bomber jackets and so much more. So bring out those thicker material items, dust off your boots, and start draping those scarves as you are going to start layering like a pro.
1) Fringed Cardigan
To be concurrent with the season’s fashion, get yourself a fringed jacket. We saw this style on the Fall-Winter 2020-2021 runways, making its mark and becoming a must-have outerwear style. A cardigan works as a semi-casual layer that can be thrown on when you are not sure too sure what look to go for. Opt for a neutral colour that will easily match most of your outfits. Moreover, it is not too chunky and the fringes make for a great style element!
2) Faux Leather Jacket
A leather moto jacket never goes out of fashion and this is something you probably already own. It is cool, classic and a definite wardrobe staple. Have fun this fall with your leather jacket to create some interesting looks. Other than the usual pairing with denim, try experimenting by styling your jacket with a dress or different prints along with some boots. The silver hardware always stands out, adding an edgy vibe to your OOTD.
3) Bomber Jacket
Another runway look to sport this season is the military-inspired print. Dior played around with this pattern in their own modified version for their outerwear collection. In a monochrome hue with a subtle glitter border on the bottom, this jacket is perfect to add some luxe to your outfit. The overall style is relatively simple. It is a light layer that can be paired over foundation pieces such as t-shirts and denim, or even with skirts and dresses to add some contrast.
4) Trench Coat
What is Fall-Winter without a trench coat? While we may not be able to maximise the use from one, it is an elegant jacket style to own. Leave it open to show off your outfit beneath, or button it up to wear it as an outfit of its own. Additionally, the belted waist helps to emphasize your waist, while also lengthening your silhouette. A trench coat is a chic, formal outwear piece to layer over your dresses for a fancy night out.
5) Belted Vest Jacket
When you are unsure of how cold it is going to be, a vest jacket proves to be a smart and practical option. Although not a very common style, this item needs to be in your jacket staples section. The loose fit allows you to layer it over a wide range of outfits without looking odd. Moreover, the tie belt balances this by cinching your waist and ensuring a smooth fit. Consider wearing it on its own or with a thin cami underneath and pants in a similar hue for a chic and Fall-Winter Pantone outfit.
6) Denim Jacket
We are back to basics with the good old classic denim jacket. There is nothing you can’t not pair with this versatile number. And so you will find yourself reaching for it more than expected. Denim works well for a number of occasions given its timeless appeal and seasons as the material is not too thick. Spruce things up by going for a different colour such as black or a loose fit and style with more pockets. Do we see an all-denim look with some ankle-boots coming up?
7) Checkered Boyfriend Blazer
There is no Autumn without plaid and vice versa. To really rock the Fall look, you need a checkered outfit in the hues of brown and orange. Do this via your jacket, and what better way than the current trend of long, boxy, oversized blazers. It is an effortless style that can instantly elevate your entire look. Moreover, it is extremely versatile because of the many ways it can be worn. Match it with similar plaid pants for a pantsuit vibe or go for a casual chic look by layering it over a sports bra and bicycle shorts.
