Anne of Green Gables got it right: I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers! October means apple picking, the beautiful colors of the leaves, cinnamon spice – and fall fashion! As someone who gets cold very easily, I’m in luck. The combination of scarves, sweaters and jackets means I can be warm and stylish at the same time! Especially in the fall, with the ever-changing temperature, layering is a must, and the jacket is the coup de grace of the fall ensemble! Check out some of my favorites below.
The Peacoat: One of my all time favorite fall jackets is the classic peacoat. The rich yellow of a mustard peacoat will brighten up any day and add a bit of sparkle to those ever-darkening afternoons! Plus, what wardrobe would be complete without a little black jacket? I love my black pea coat – fitted at the top but flared at the bottom, it’s a coat I bring everywhere, from Scotland to Tuscany!
The Blazer: Blazers are another fall-jacket must! Light and sharp, blazers will keep you looking classy all season long.
The Vest: For football games or strolling around campus, a vest is a great way to go. It accentuates your curves and keeps you warm and looking chic!
Go Leather (or pleather): Perfect for any season, black leather – or pleather – jackets shine in the fall. They give your style a badass, edgy look perfect for the darkening days.
Bonus: For those days that are a little extra chilly, I always go for a fitted down coat, preferably one with a hood!
Stay warm, look cute, be happy – and love fall!
