Fall weather has us stocking our closets with seasonal favorites: jackets, booties, sweaters, and scarfs. Perhaps the most important of these is the jacket. This key wardrobe staple can transition wardrobes from season to season, and it can elevate an everyday outfit to something special. As co-owner of Brentwood’s Copper Penny, Kristen Tedder says, “Adding a jacket is one of the easiest ways to elevate an otherwise casual outfit. Plus, no one will know how little effort went into pulling together your look!”
The fashion maven styled and modeled five fall outfits you can pull together in a pinch. Each look proves the importance — and effectiveness — of the jacket, a classic staple that can be worn with every trend of the season. Plus get styling tips for each. Take a look!
Animal print jacket
Styling tip: The animal print trend is proving its staying power this season by showing up on everything from shoes and shirts to jackets. Here, Kristen shows how approachable the print can be by pairing it with a white t-shirt and black jeans. When in doubt, keep things simple.
Red and oh-so-soft jacket
Styling tip: Lightweight and soft, this jacket is one you will never want to take off. You can’t go wrong wearing it with a playful pattern (as Kristen does here) or something more basic. Try it with denim, or dress it up with an LBD.
Styling tip: Wrap yourself in this loose-fitting jacket that doubles as a sweater. When things really cool down, it can be worn over a chunky knit for a super cozy look. Until then, it looks great with a white long-sleeve tee.
Styling tip: Lovers of winter white, this one is for you. A delicious cream color and super-soft, sweater-like fabric make this simple jacket the most versatile on the list. With this piece in your arsenal, you can look put-together for any occasion.
Faux leather jacket
Styling tip: Ditch your typical black leather jacket and choose something more modern. This faux leather jacket is the neutral number you’ve been looking for. Kristen was smart to pair it with an all-black outfit and funky necklace.
