Meet the bomber jacket's warmer, collared cousin: the flight jacket. Wear one over a floaty fall dress, or try it with a turtleneck tucked into high-waisted jeans.
If you're going to make a dramatic exit, you need a duster coat—worn wide-open—flapping in the wind behind you.
Yes, bombers are still going strong, and they're the perfect option if your city doesn't get too cold between September and November. Look for a style with special details: Derek Lam's features allover beading, while Rebecca Taylor's take on the trend is extra long.
Patchwork has made its way from jeans to outerwear this season. Switch out your denim jacket for a fun, multi-wash version, or take the trend further into fall with MSGM's paneled wool coat or Isabel Marant Etoile's quilted velvet zip-up style.
First, ask yourself: Traditional parka or party parka? In the former category, there's A.P.C.'s hip-length gabardine jacket and Rag & Bone's hooded, military-inspired style, while Zara and Topshop are holding down the latter with flashy metallics.
Vinyl, PVC, and coated cotton coats feel fresh for fall—and impervious to coffee, hot chocolate, and apple cider spills.
