My Favorite Piece for Autumn is a Lightweight jacket, in a variety of styles. These vary from your traditional autumn and winter favorites in length however keeping cuts the same as traditional coats, but they hit slightly above the waist and often tie or button under the chest. The beauty of these new pieces is that they provide coverage in colder months without sacrificing sexiness or femininity.
The perfect jacket is one of the most important elements of your wardrobe, and with so many shapes and fabrics available this fall, it would be a crime to choose just one. The ever-present denim jacket is back with a new vengeance. Instead of the washes of last season or bulkiness of years before, this season’s denim jacket is soft, body-conscious and far more feminine than the traditional denim jacket. Corduroy and leather are back again, cropped and ready to be worn over anything from your favorite dress to distressed jeans.
Other Trends to Watch For
Getting short isn’t the only new addition to a cold weather favorite. Sleeves are getting revamped this season, retro-style. Bell sleeves (think bellbottom sleeves, cut below the elbow) mix cropped length with a traditional fabric and throwback to 70s style. I also Can’t fail to mention the mini version of the military jacket, a cropped, girlie take on the long, heavy style, adorned with brass buttons and zippers
The beauty of these jackets is the versatility they bring to your own style: mix them with denim, dresses, skirts and trousers. Since there isn’t one specific style or fabric that will reign this fall, all styles and sizes can take advantage of a new take on an old favorite.
