10 styles to complete all your looks this season.
Lightweight Jackets Are The MVP For Fall

It’s (somehow) that time of year when the calendar suggests it’s time to stow away your summer wardrobe, but the weather indicates it’s not quite time to get entirely bundled up just yet. But if you, like many, look forward to the fall for layered dressing, you’re probably not looking to wait until wintertime to get started — in which case, lightweight jackets are bound to be your MVP of the season. 

Let’s be honest, no one likes layering on hefty coats because they have to, but there’s nothing like completing an already great outfit with a chic, lightweight jacket that serves equal parts aesthetic and practical purposes. Because there is such a wide range of styles on the market, you can snag a handful of jackets to rotate throughout the season, and each of them will be able to lend a unique element to any outfit. For instance, there are lightweight trenches to elevate your basics, shackets to pair with jeans, or lightweight puffers to wear on breezier days. Then, jackets that feel more like an integral part of your outfit, you might consider an option that comes with matching bottoms, á la many denim jackets. There are a number of other design elements to keep an eye out for when looking for pieces that can elevate your outfit rather than simply adding on to it, such as artful silhouettes, contrast stitching, mixed media, or textured details.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up 10 lightweight jacket styles for you to shop for fall, and with the right layering, you can carry many of these into winter as well.
