Fashion Math: The Fall Jacket Editon

As soon as temperatures drop, we instantly enter kid-in-a-candy-shop mode. Cherry-picking the perfect fall jacket has become one of our favorite seasonal pastimes — along with apple picking and stepping on crunchy leaves, of course. After all, as we see it, finding a flattering, sleek, and unique topper that can be worn over multiple items in our wardrobe can truly make the difference between fighting against the elements and facing them with a pep in your step and smize on your face.
So, to simplify the hunt for an amazing jacket that enhances, not muffles, your style, we've narrowed it down to the three trends you need to know and what to pair 'em with. Ahead, nine crisp fall looks that are the tops.
