Fall is a time when we get to enjoy experimenting with jackets and outerwear. There is nothing like a great jacket to complete an outfit, and the season’s hottest outerwear trends are stylish and fun, as we get to layer on the looks when the temps finally cool down.

From sleek bombers to embroidered denim, leather motorcycle jackets, full-length trenches and retro faux furs, there are many styles to choose from.

Here are a few of the foremost outwear trends and must-have jackets to sport this season that will keep you warm, cozy and super stylish through the holidays.

Mad about plaid

The hottest trend of autumn 2017 is plaid, and the predominant way we see this style emerge this season is by way of blazers, jackets and coats. This double-breasted, full-length stunner by Michael Kors is classic, timeless and of-the-moment, paying homage to menswear-inspired tailoring with an ankle-grazing hem. When paired with a sleek pant and tousled feminine blouse, the coat receives modern flair, contrasting masculine with feminine style.

Retro faux fur

Inspired by old Hollywood glamour and the boh0-chic coats made popular in the ‘70s, retro-style fur is one of the premier en vogue styles this season. Boasting cropped sleeves and a leopard print, this vintage-style coat can add an instant “it” factor to skinny jeans or a party dress.
