Best Fall Coats
by Chantelle Mallin
With autumn just around the corner we’re beginning to see Autumn/Winter season collections hitting the stores. Personally, this is an exciting time for me as I’m in love with this years A/W trends. From punk/grunge to sober blooms, the cooler weather is a perfect excuse to splash out on the latest fall coats to keep you toasty on your travels.
Find out what we’ve ranked as the best fall jackets for travel!
You’re sure to stand out in this bright yellow raincoat from Joules. With a beautifully flirty and sporty look, it’s the perfect travel jacket to make a color popping statement in.
Even better? It’s packable, water-resistant and equipped with an interior drawstring for a proper fit. Gloomy days are no match in this instant stunner!
On Trend with Faux Fur
Cute without the cruelty. Whether it be printed, bright hued or as a trim, faux fur always seems to make a comeback in the fall and winter seasons. This timeless style is a promising pick for the coming months.
Perfect for wearing over your favorite shirt or sweater to protect you from the chill.
Function and Fashion
The clothing brand Anatomie is behind one of our FAVORITE jackets for travel that we simply can’t stop raving about – the Kenya! Anatomie creates designer travel clothes from high performance fiber to create garments that are lightweight, protective, resistant, quick-drying and insanely comfortable.
Therefore it’s no surprise that their Kenya jacket is one of our top picks for the fall season. Available in a variety of colors and perfectly packable for when temperatures start to rise. Click here to read my full review on the Kenya jacket!
Topshop is one of the best high street retailers in providing on trend catwalk worthy fashions at affordable prices – think ‘luxe pieces with a big hit of street savvy style’.
It is the only high street brand to show at London Fashion Week (Topshop Unique). This textured biker jacket is such a classic addition to any travel wardrobe and is guaranteed to add a hint of edginess to any outfit! Featuring quilted shoulders and cool zippered embellishments, you’re sure to stay cool all season long in this stunner.
Ideal Layering Piece
This beautifully draped jacket from BLANKNYC is made for layering, perfect to throw over an outfit when heading out at night for a meal or drinks. And if you’re looking for even more coverage, you can easily layer a leather jacket over it as well.
It also ticks off another favorite fall trend – suede! There are plenty of color options to choose from as well, however you can never go wrong with a classic camel. It’s definitely a piece you can take from outerwear to evening wear – pair with black ponte pants, loafers and a white tee for a look you can rock all day and night.
Down To Business
Polish up your look this season with a classy blazer. This is a timeless piece that will always be in style and most certainly isn’t limited to just corporate, formal events! Throw one over skinny jeans, a tee and flats for a casual yet classy ensemble.
Another bonafide TFG favorite, the Laney Trench by North Face will keep your wardrobe dry and your outfit options open. In addition to its impressive functionality (plenty of pockets, HyVent® performance, etc.) it has a back sealed snap that creates a fitted, flattering silhouette.
An adjustable hood provides protection and comfort and multiple color options let you pick the perfect one for you. We love the Laney!
Seriously influenced by the ever popular military trend, this utility jacket is the perfect blend of grungy and style forward. Utility jackets were all the rage last fall and they don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
They’re a great casual piece that’ll pair perfectly with sunnies, dark wash jeans and ankle boots. And their lightweight design – taking up little space – means the jacket is a perfect addition to your autumn travel wardrobe.
Continuing on with the lightweight trend (as we’re all about here at TFG!, Cole Haan’s Back Bow Packable Hooded Raincoat is another serious reader favorite. And understandably so – this piece comes available in multiple colors and packs up like a dream. Its water resistant silhouette resembles a classic trench and its hood is also removable.
The list goes on when it comes to why we love this practical piece. Pair with ponte pants, a striped quarter sleeve top and black loafers the next time your travels take you to Paris.
Like the Right As Rain jacket from Joules above but looking for some more excitement? No worries, they’ve got plenty of prints available as well.
We adore this feminine floral and could see it working well in England or Japan. And just like the original one above, it’s packable and an overall fantastic option for travel.
Ticking the Trends
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – leopard is officially back! Throw this over a simple LBD and ankle booties to jazz up your look in an instant.
We’re especially loving how this jacket is water repellant, meaning random downpours won’t dampen your travels. A pleated back perfects its fit while large glossy buttons complement the print.
Looking for “oversized” that’s actually just the right size? Look no further than this blogger-approved midi coat from Treasure and Bond. Sleek, sophisticated and stylish – you really can’t go wrong with this versatile stunner.
And if you’re concerned about how to pack this on your fall and winter travels, we suggest wearing it as part of your plane outfit so that you avoid excess bulk in your carryon. That way, you’ll have a pretty adorable flight outfit as well!
Can’t go wrong with a classic! This trench from London Fog is an easy and promising pick for the fall – we’re getting major Audrey Hepburn vibes circa Breakfast at Tiffany’s (which everyone knows will ALWAYS be in fashion).
Looks aside, this durable coat also comes equipped with a detachable liner. Meaning this piece will take you through both fall and winter in style, elegance and most of all, warmth. A clear winner in our book.
Mad About Plaid
Madewell, founded in the 30’s, had a respectable tradition of producing high quality clothing; it is a prime brand for women seeking both fashion and function.
This classic plaid coat falls directly into this season’s current French girl trend. Add this to your autumn wardrobe and be fiercely on trend whilst remaining comfortable and covered, double threat!
