Saying goodbye to summer is never fun, but — if you love jackets as much as we do — there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. With outerwear season comes a variety of gorgeous, chic, and, not to mention, ultra-snuggly jackets. In theory, one jacket may get you through an entire season, but there’s really no fun in that!
Like your own personal shopper, we’ve gathered eight must-have jackets that will flatter your body at any age. See what’s in our cart, ahead.
1. A faux leather flyaway jacket
Everyone needs a leather jacket in their closet — faux, or not — and this flyaway one from Bar III is the perfect one. The whimsical, flyaway detail in the front adds a flattering appeal to the chest and waist, while the shoulders and asymmetrical detail gives a slimming yet structured look.
2. A wool coatigan
If you love lightweight cardigans, then you’ll love this jacket-like “coatigan” from Ann Taylor. Made with snuggly cashmere and wool fabric, this cozy jacket is perfect for a fall or spring day. Featuring a shawl collar and doubleface detail, this everyday jacket will flatter any body at any age.
3. A classic jean jacket
Jean jackets are a classic and look great on everyone, no matter your age or your body type. We love this denim jacket from Madewell for its high-end quality, brass detail, and slimming fit. This is one jacket you’ll have in your closet for years to come.
4. A kimono
Whether you need something lightweight for a warm fall or spring day or are looking to toss something over a sundress, kimonos are a closet must-have. We love this one from Ascot + Hart for its baggy, yet flattering cut. What’s more? Thanks to its taupe color, this kimono will pair well with virtually anything in your closet.
5. A tweed open jacket
Another classic — read: flattering — jacket to always keep in your closet? A tweed open jacket. With their structured and sophisticated appeal, it’s no wonder Jackie O loved them so much. We love this one from Ann Taylor for its ultra mod detail and flattering cut. Not to mention: Both color options can go with anything.
6. A kiss-front blazer
Looking for a blazer, but want something a little more feminine? Try a flattering kiss-front blazer. We love this one from Nine West for its flattering waistline, structured yet flowy detail, and fun colorway. The teal is a great way to add some spice to your work wardrobe.
7. A long trench coat
Contrary to what you may think, trench coats can actually be super flattering. Thanks to their belted waistlines and flattering neckline, trench coats — such as this baby pink one from Badgley Mischka — can cinch your waist and show off your curves with little-to-no effort.
8. A collarless, open-front jacket
Another flattering jacket every woman needs in her closet? A collarless, open front jacket. Although they’re missing a collar, these jackets are both structured and flattering on the neck, collarbone, and shoulders. We love this textured one from Cupcakes and Cashmere for its cool geometric motif pattern and funky fringed edges.
