Transitional Jackets to See You Through Autumn


The rituals of getting dressed in the first chilly mornings of autumn truly are a guessing game: will today be sunny? Warm? Or will rain break through those mysterious clouds? Is it already tights weather? And most importantly, how does one cover up (and stay stylish) in that limbo between summer heat and the first snow? The answer is, as it often is, outerwear. The right jacket will keep you from shivering when that sunny morning rather deceivingly conceals freezing temperatures, but it will also be light enough to adapt to those gloriously warm September Sundays.

Runway trends indicated bombers are still going strong – as is a hint of velvet. We’re also very fond of our biker jackets and love wrapping up in a relaxed duster coat, meaning choice is endless this season. Enjoy.
