5 Essential Jackets You NEED In The Fall

In the chillier months, we're all too used to getting the question "Aren't you cold?" when we refuse to wear a jacket that would completely ruin our outfit. We end up suffering on our morning commute since none of our coats quite make the cut with the day's look. So, come fall and winter, outerwear is undoubtedly the most vital element in any wardrobe. And because you're beginning to wear it every single day, your coat becomes more important than your denim, your accessories, or even your sweater repertoire. Coats literally cover your outfit up, so they have no choice but to be on point. Outerwear can make or break an outfit, and the search for the best on-trend yet practical coats should commence early on, before the cold settles in. Click ahead to see fresh silhouettes to fun faux fur and, yes, puffer coats that are actually cool. You're sure to find a coat trend that you actually want to wear every day.
