When it comes to fashion, your mind is still probably on beachy bikinis, flowy dresses, and strappy sandals. I don't want to jolt you out of your warm weather dream but some seriously cozy fall jackets are already on the market and you might want to check them out before other ahead-of-the-curve shoppers get their hands on them. Whether you're into pastel suedes or studded denim, lush faux furs or cozy plaids, there's a style (or ten!) on the market for you that you'll want to get into your closet ASAP and have ready for the first day of autumnal chill.
The best part about fall jackets is they don't need to protect you against absolutely bone-chilling weather. That's what ankle length puffer coats are for and we don't need to worry about shopping those for awhile, thank god. Fall jackets simply need to protect against the chilly winds that have just started to edge their way into everyday weather, meaning lighter jean, leather, cotton, and peacoat jackets will do the trick. It goes without saying that lighter jackets boast way trendier and more experimental design details like bold colors, playful embellishments, and experimental silhouettes than typical puffer coats do. Take a look below at the best jacket offerings currently on the market—all of which are under $100!—and you'll see what I mean. They might actually make you wish fall would hurry up.
Get this coat, put it on immediately and hug everyone you pass on the street. It'll basically turn you into a walking, talking stuffed animal, so wouldn't want a fuzzy embrace?
