One of the reasons I love the chilly weather is to pull out my favorite outerwear pieces and add on the layers. Now that I’ve started to grow a wardrobe that’s both classic and comfortable my outerwear has started to shift from trend-based, Old Navy styles to a bit more high-quality, trendless styles.
I wanted to do a roundup of my four favorite outerwear styles that will never go out of vogue and is perfect for purchasing this time of year.
Perfect for wet climates and fall weather, these utilitarian coats were made popular by Barbour and adapted by everyone from J.Crew to L.L. Bean.
Known for their length anorak jackets are super easy to throw on over leggings and a sweatshirt and is my favorite chilly weather accessory to travel with. Hint: they turn into excellent blankets in a pinch!
Even if you live in the Deep South a denim jacket is still going to be a jacket of choice in the winter. Now that the 80s are back, denim jackets in all shapes and sizes are popular again. You can find them cropped, oversized, pink, black, blue, bedazzled, and everything in between.
I’ve talked about having a trench as a permanent addition to my wardrobe before and I truly believe it’s the most versatile outerwear piece you can buy. Of course there are luxe versions like a Burberry but you can find versions under $100 at J.Crew or Banana Republic that are still classic and cool.
