Top 5 Jackets for Autumn

Now that the Summer is gone and the cold weather is coming, you slowly need to bring out your warmer clothes.

This is that time of the year when you need a jacket in the morning but in some days not in the afternoon. So finding the perfect jacket is difficult, because you need one that's warm enough to be worn outside but not too warm so you'll start to sweat and feel uncomfortable (especially if you are out for a long period of time).

The perfect jacket for this weather should also look great with all (or most of) your outfits and wardrobe, whether you're going to work or for dinners, parties and a night out in town. This is why the Autumn and Spring jacket is the hardest one to find. But when you find the perfect one you know it has been worth the hunt.

Here are my top five jackets (in no specific order) and a few tips regarding trends on what you should be looking for.

1#: Leather Sleeve Jacket


The first big trend is the on-going trend that started this Spring: jackets with a bit of leather. It looks like this trend is here to stay, so a jacket like that would be a great investment for your wardrobe. The black leather sleeve jacket is raw and cool, it's the style that you will see on jackets, sweatshirts and tops, so it's definitely a trend to go for.

2#: Multicolour Jackets


A 2 coloured jacket is a great way to get more colours to your outdoor look. You can use jackets and coats for it and it will give your classic jacket a young and cool look to a classic shape. In this case this is a monochrome jacket, but there are several other jackets with other colours that you can choose from.

3#: Bomber Jacket


The bomber jacket or what some would call the baseball jacket is a very hot trend this fall. The cool and comfortable cut makes these jackets a great buy and almost "must have" . You can get them in different colours and cuts so it would fit your body shape.

4#: Military Style Coat


The military style coat has been very popular this year and it still is. Now in a loose and cool way, this jacket has a bit of that shape and also comes in khaki colour. It's loose shape style gives it a more casual look. This jacket will fit all body shapes and ages.

5#: Trench Coat


The trench coat is the on-going trend for every season, you get it for Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring, and it's the most classic jacket (in terms of shape) you can get. It comes back in trendy colours and is the one jacket in your wardrobe that will always be trendy and stylish - a truly "must have".
