So long Summer, say hello to fall! Yes, it’s true, our days of lounging by the pool
sipping rosé at Soho are officially over. But there is good news, great news in fact.

season and that means, clean out and update our current closet situation with a
new jacket or two.
A stylish jacket is a big deal because it can transform your outfit in an instant while
also keeping us warm and toasty. You don’t have to wipe out your Apple Pay to
make a statement but if you do decide to invest in a heavy hitting item, find one that
will last you for many seasons to come.
Below are a few showstopping jackets fashion editors say that will stand the test of
time no matter if you’re wearing your favorite jeans and a tee or an LBD to a chic
soirée. This season, jackets are all about making it your OWN.

3. Velvet blazers are our new fave. Wear them from work to a night out with the gals
at no extra effort. Still chilly? Add a scarf and voilà.
4. I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of Athleisure. This Power Peak Jacket is
just what a city girl needs, a little bit of gym-ness and a whole lot of style. This
jacket is the perfect travel companion too for the chili flight and nights.
