Summer's great and all, but after a couple months when the heat is raging and you're trudging through the humid air, it's normal to find yourself craving the crisp, cool weather and all the glory it holds. Lo and behold, fall weather has finally shown up and she's brought all her favorites with her such as cardigan sweaters and boots. However, we can't forget the beloved autumnal fashion classic: 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 (25 to be exact) of fall-optimal jackets. There's everything from cinched blazers to hybrid styles like shackets and coatigans.
