The item of clothing I'm willing to splurge on year after year isn't a new pair of shoes or a designer handbag, it's a nice jacket. Sometimes I'll go with a trendy option, like a teddy bear jacket. Other times, I prioritize practicality and opt for a long down coat, which more or less means I'm traipsing the streets of Manhattan in a black sleeping bag. (It's definitely not trendy, but oh-so-very warm.) I'm a firm believer that your coat should last you through multiple seasons, but with so many new styles coming out annually, I can't resist buying a new one...or two. If you're in the market for a fresh jacket for fall, too, keep clicking; we've hand-picked some goodies. Whether you plan to swaddle yourself in cozy faux-shearling or bury your hands in some wool pockets, the outerwear choices ahead won't disappoint.
