Fall Jacket Trends for 2013

Let’s face it, fall fashion is the best. All the layering options make for versatility and more interesting outfits…not to mention of number of different textures to mix and match. A fall jacket is the perfect way to top off an outfit, so we say let your jacket be part of your outfit instead of just a way to keep warm. Here are the top five styles in fall jacket trends for 2013.

What are the hottest fall jackets this season?

1. Bomber

The bomber jacket has been in style for a couple seasons now, so it’s a safe bet that if you invest in this style, you’ll be able to wear it for a while.

Wear it with: Bombers look great with dresses, skirts, and slim-fitting pants.

2. Moto

We love the moto jacket because 1) it always looks cool (as you can see in this picture) and 2) it’s warm enough to wear right up to winter.

Wear it with: Almost anything. You can feminize the moto jacket with a light-colored maxi skirt or dress, or go full-out rocker with some distressed denim and boots.

3. Blazer

The fall blazer is great because it can be worn both outdoors and in. It always looks professional, and is a good way bump up an otherwise casual outfit to something put-together and office appropriate. Blazers will never go out of style, but this season the trend is a blazer with only one or two buttons, with a low stance fastening well below the bust.

Wear it with: A slim pant, skinny jean, pencil skirt, or structured trouser.

4. Tuxedo

This menswear trend is a great way to add some drama to your night out. Because of that, it’s easier to have a little more fun with bold colors or patterns. Of course, you can never go wrong with classic black.

Wear it with: Because the tuxedo jacket is more loose-fitting, you’ll want to balance your outfit with a slim pant, skinny jean, or mini skirt on the bottom.

5. Military

A military jacket is super structured, and has embellishments like big shiny buttons and epaulets. Despite that, it’s great for everyday outerwear, and looks best in military inspired colors like navy or army green. We’re so glad it’s still in style, and are excited to try out this season’s shorter, boxier versions.

Wear it with: Dresses and tights really balance out the structure of this look, and some medium-washed jeans help to keep it casual.

How To: Wear White after Labor Day

Your mother probably gave you the following advice when you were young: Never wear white after Labor Day! The truth is that this fashion rule is a little outdated. White can be a great addition to any fall and winter wardrobe…when it’s done well. Read the following tips to learn how to wear white well past September.

Look for Heavier Fabrics

Sheer fabrics look too summery (and are too chilly!) for the cooler months. However, an oversized, white cable-knit sweater or cardigan is always in style and looks incredible with some casual skinny jeans and boots. It’s also super warm and cozy, which is our favorite part of fall fashion.

Opt for Cream Instead

A lot of people shy away from bright white as their summer tans begin to fade. The solution to this is to choose a warmer shade of white, like off-white or cream.

Accessorize with White

If you’re not brave enough to go all-over white in the cooler months, keep it to the accessories. Sunglasses, scarves, or handbags in white or off-white will really pop against the more subdued, darker fall shades.

It’s All about The Layers

By adding multiple layers to your outfit, you can introduce white to an ensemble without becoming a snowman. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: layers are the best way to add depth and interest to any outfit, so have fun with them!

Faux Fur

Faux fur is back again this season, especially when it comes to jackets and accessories. Since white is a natural color for fur anyway, it’s the perfect place to introduce white to your fall look. By keeping white to the trendier pieces in your closet, you’re keeping the investment low in case you change your mind next season.
