Whether you call it a military jacket, a lightweight parka, or an anorak, the truth is that this is one of the biggest workhorses of your fall wardrobe. Look for one that has drawstrings at the waist to help define your waist—this will especially come in handy when you’re layering bulky sweaters underneath. It’s a casual piece that immediately conjures up jeans, tees, and boots, but also try mixing it up and wearing it to work. Zipped up over a pencil skirt, it’s a stylish replacement for a blouse; you can also layer it with neutral colored maxi dresses to get a little more life out of your summer clothes.
