For those of you heading out on autumn trips, I’ve put together some of the best fall jackets of the season plus how to choose the right ones for your next adventure!
Fabulous Fall Jackets
Jackets are a must for fall, but in many regions, a heavy coat isn’t necessary – yet. Remember, the key with traveling in mild to cold temperatures is to layer.
Instead of packing thick knits and chunky sweaters, layer thin-mid weight long sleeve pullovers and tops in warm fabrics like cashmere, merino wool, and polyester blends.

How to Pick the Perfect Fall Jacket to Pack
When you’re traveling you want to choose outerwear with these key elements:
- Not too thick
- Not too heavy
- Made of practical material
- Packs light is a bonus!
Style is super important when you choose outerwear for travel because you’ll be wearing the same one or two fall jackets throughout your trip, which also means that the outerwear you choose will be in most if not all your pictures.
How Many to Pack
Ideally you’ll pack one (no more than two) jackets, and if you can wear them together that’s even better! Now, let’s jump into our fashion tips.
Here are the top fall jacket trends and our favorite picks!
Keep your look effortlessly cool this season with a sleek moto jacket. This classic can easily be worked into any fall wardrobe!
BLANKNYC has some fantastic styles to choose from, with one of our favorites being this cool and edgy leather jacket This will naturally complement both fall and winter outfits and is a necessity for the style-conscious traveler.
Military-Inspired Utility Jacket
Utility jackets took the season by storm last year and there appears to be no slowing down in 2018 either.
And understandably so! We love a timeless parka jacket for autumn and then layering it to the max for the chillier winter months.
They’re the perfect fall jacket that can easily take you through the seasons in style. Choose a military green or a navy blue and you’ve got yourself an instant classic.
Yes, there’s more to blazers than just job interviews and networking banquets. These fancy pieces are being reinvented this season to be modern, style conscious and easily wearable.
Blazers are especially popular in Europe, making these updated pieces perfect for your next trip over there.
We love the trendy tie closure sleeves on the Olivia Moon blazer. The final result is a sophisticated jacket that is more chic than it is corporate. Use them to take your look from day to night in an instant!
Elegant Draped Jacket
Cascading drapes add an elegant touch to an otherwise simple jacket. This style is great for layering underneath heavier outerwear or rocking on its own with some boots and skinny jeans! We particularly love the style above because it can also work as a leather jacket.
A blazer with a twist. You can go for the classic style above or you can rock one with a more menswear feel, like this piece here.
These often have a more oversized look and go perfectly in line with the French girl trend currently taking over the style scene. Pair with classic ankle jeans and some d’orsay flats for a wonderfully chic getup.
