When living in South Carolina, a “fall jacket” wasn’t something that necessarily existed in a wardrobe. It went from famously hot to Patagonia weather practically overnight (and trust me: Patagonia weather isn’t really all that cold). However, now that I’m back in New England, a fall jacket is just about as necessary as a down jacket, snow boots, or an ice scraper for your car.
As soon as September hits, the mornings and afternoons are noticeably chilly, but the days are still warm from the sun. Temperatures hover anywhere between 50-80 degrees on any average September day, which is why a fall jacket is so necessary — it provides optimal layering for those cool mornings and evenings and is a perfect seasonal transition piece (not to mention fall jackets are so adorable!). These are my favorite fall jackets; notice how most of them are classics from various brands, with a couple trendy picks thrown in as well.
