As an outerwear hoarder, there are few things as satisfying as buying a new jacket for fall. I grew up in Alberta and have spent much of my adulthood flitting between Ontario, Germany and the U.K., so I am very familiar with dressing for warm, rainy, brisk and freezing autumn weather.
More than anything else in my wardrobe, I find myself willing to splurge on a good coat. Not only will it (hopefully) keep you warm, but an aesthetically pleasing jacket will win you more compliments from strangers than anything else.
Below, I've gathered 14 jackets I am style-crushing on for fall 2023. Included in my list are royal-approved styles from Barbour, a Canada Goose x Reformation vest I'm debating selling a kidney for, and several outerwear styles from Mango that are already on my wish list. Keep scrolling to shop my edit.
