20 Just-Right Jackets To Layer Up With In Cooler Weather

Whether we spent it with our toes dug into the socially distanced sand or staycationing inside next to our leaky AC units, the summer of 2020 felt like the longest one we've had to date. But, lo and behold, fall weather has finally shown up and she brought our favorite autumnal fashion classic with her: the jacket.

Jackets (not to be confused with their heavier cousins, coats) are the coolest kind of transitional buy, lightweight enough for layering into outfits when the temps are not quite warm but not yet cold — they're the Goldilocks of wardrobe staples: just right. If you're in need of a little shopping inspiration for the season ahead, we've gathered up our top picks (18 to be exact) of fall-optimal jackets. There's everything from cinched blazers to hybrid styles like shackets and coatigans.
