3 Fresh Ways to Style Fall’s Favorite Fashion Item

These jackets will carry your wardrobe from summer to fall.

In my personal opinion, jacket weather is the best time to get dressed. You aren't restricted to overbearing coats and puffers, but you have the capability to layer without overheating. And that's what transitional dressing is all about—the ability to put on and take off layers as the temperature fluctuates throughout the day. The key piece here: jackets. Less bulky than a coat but slightly warmer than a simple long-sleeve top, the jacket is a stylish add-on that's not only practical, but can elevate any look stylewise. Trench coats, denim jackets, leather moto styles, quilted versions, blazers—the options are prolific. In case you needed a few ideas in terms of styling, we've recreated three jacket-based ensembles for you to shop below.

Transitional weather provides a narrow window in which to wear both a mini hemline and a long-sleeve top. Jazz up the neutral look (and keep those feet warm) with a pair of snake-print boots.

When styling a blazer, you don't have to only opt for polished separates—in fact, it's way cooler if you don't. We love how this look mixes a sweatshirt with summery cotton shorts and a sleek blazer. Top it all off with socks and sneakers.

A great lesson in approaching color and print if you're hesitant: Let the rest of the look frame your statement piece. Here, a red coat is further emphasized with simple separates—denim, a black crop top, and sandals.
