In theory, autumn is a great season for fashion, but let’s face it, it’s also kind of terrible because you can never figure out quite what to wear so you’re actually comfortable.
A down coat feels too heavy, but a thin sweater won’t cut it and you’ll be sweating by 2pm anyway. When it comes to the best fall jackets and coats, we prefer sherpas, denim, light puffers, and shackets. No, we didn’t make that last one up.
Fall Jackets and Coats for the Most Confusing Season

This Soia & Kyo jacket perfectly encapsulates the different available pumpkin shades. When you want to match with your dessert, look no further.
Why blend in when you were born to wear this bright pink jacket from Summersalt. You can even fold it into a pillow while traveling. Don’t sleep on this coat. Or, do.
This Good American jacket has everything: denim on one side, sherpa fleece on the other, and the discovery that you’re the long lost member of Jamiroquai.
Shirt jackets, or shackets like this one from Madewell, are all the rage this fall. Unlike the machine. It’s in the shop.
