Six fall must-have jackets

By Sydney Nelson

As the fall season begins, we put summer apparel to rest, and new trends start to take form. Shorts and dresses are swapped for jeans and sweaters. However, the jeans and sweater look often gets super boring, so why not mix it up with a cute fall jacket. It’s not time to pull out your huge parka and your scarf, instead, it’s time to pull out some stylish, lightweight jackets to spice up your fall ensemble. Here are six jacket trends that are essential this season:

Animal Print

Whether it be cheetah print or snakeskin or any other kind of animal, be sure to follow this trend.

Denim Jackets (With a Twist)

Plain denim jackets are still on trend, however, it is much more fun to wear a denim jacket that diverges from the norm. Jackets like these will force people to inquire questions like “where did you get that from?”

Puffers or Bombers

Puffers are essential for those chillier fall days. It’s not time to call in the parka, but it’s just cold enough that you want some extra warmth and you’ll want to look stylish while doing so.
