Fall is perhaps the most enjoyable time of year to get dressed. It’s not so cold that it warrants a puffy down jacket, and but it’s cool enough that you can layer creatively. Rather than settling for a nondescript military parka to get you through the next few months, why not have some fun with your outerwear? A sleek wool blazer, like the two-tone version by J.Crew, is perfect thrown over a simple sheath for the workday or paired with a tee and jeans. If a tough motorcycle jacket is more your speed, Christopher Kane’s leopard version is a definite statement piece, while Oak’s black leather is ideal for traditionalists. Opening Ceremony’s varsity jacket has been a favorite with the street-style crew this season, and although that’s now sold out, similar styles from the likes of Mango and Madewell offer a sporty counterpoint to dresses.
