Top Fall Jacket Styles

Like it or not, a cool front is coming in and, with it, the need for a topper. So often dismissed as a secondary thought, we put effort into our outfits only to cover it up with a ho-hum jacket. Well no more, it’s time for your outerwear to get the attention it deserves. No matter your style, shape or budget, you’re sure to find a fave among our top style picks of the season:

1. Faux Fur Vest – Sure this faux fur Polar vest by Juicy Couture (Shopbop, $288.08) isn’t a jacket per se, but as a layer it will certainly provide the coziness you crave. We’d throw this on top of anything from a cable knit turtleneck to a lightweight utility jacket for ultra glam warmth.

2. Cape – We love that this Laundry by Shelli Segal Double-Breasted Cape Jacket (Bluefly, $99.99) is roomy enough to conceal any evidence of a tummy but structured so that it doesn’t add any pounds with unflattering volume.

3. Parka – From  Joseph Altuzarra to Olivia Palermo, it seems that all the cool kids got the memo that a parka is the coat de jour and this is one time that we will not hesitate to succumb to peer pressure. Borg Collar Padded Parka (Topshop, $190.00). See how to wear the parka in the fall issue of Real Style Magazine.

4. Dress Coat – Sometimes the occasion simply calls for a grown-up, dressy finish and we cannot resist this no-frills (in the best sense possible) buttonless suede dress coat by Simonetta Ravizza  (Stylebop, $285.00).
