Stunning Fall Jackets for the Ladies

Make your coat a statement piece with these great looks for fall.

It’s time to put away those swimsuits and throw on some jackets!  I can’t promise that a cute jacket will make your day better, but it will cover up a bad outfit and help out when your alarm fails you.

Parka

Last winter’s weather was cold all over the country and the parka was seen almost everywhere.  This year, designers saw the need for warm clothes and made the parka chic.  This H&M version of the parka has insulation for warmth and embraces the utilitarian trend.

Tuxedo

The tuxedo jacket is the single most coveted jacket this fall.  It may not be the warmest of jackets, but it will spruce up any outfit and is perfect thrown on over a dress and tights.  This white tuxedo jacket is from Rachel Zoe’s new line, which has received nothing but praise, so hurry and buy it before it sells out!

Faux Fur

As the textile industry improves, so does faux fur.  Well-made faux furs, seen above, have similar appearance to real fur without the upkeep and guilt.  Vibrant faux furs are in this season, but if you’re not comfortable wearing a lime green stole, this Vince Camuto jacket is a practical way to wear the trend.
