Early fall is one of those magical times that you can wear just about anything you want and have it make total sense. No one will think it's odd if you sport open-toe shoes or a flouncy, white dress but you can also #sweaterweather on Instagram to your heart's delight. Plus, if you're still on a post-fashion week inspirational high, these may be some of your best-dressed days.
One of my favorite items during this time of year is the fall jacket. Obviously, if you want to get all utilitarian, you can choose a jacket for its warmth factor alone, but in my experience, finding the perfect topper does more than just keep you toasty. Still, I understand that making a decision on a jacket purchase can be a bit of a commitment. Most of us don't usually have quite as many jackets as outfits, so something that can work well with many different looks is key.
Plus size options on the outerwear front may have been lacking in the past, but this year, I'm happy to report, there's so much more to choose from beyond the basic black nylon jacket. We've rounded up the best lightweight jackets for fall and are sharing them here with you because you deserve to add one (or more!) of these pretty pieces to your closet this fall.
