    1. A trench duster cape that will reveal to the world your true self: Superwoman, of course.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE this cape! It's perfect for fall. I got tons of compliments on it, and I wore it with a little black dress under with thigh-high boots. I read reviews before, and they said to order a size down from your normal size. I am so glad I did!" —Raemia Higgins

    Get it from Amazon for $36+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in six colors).

    2. A mid-length plaid shirt jacket made with a soft thin filling that has the look of a plaid shirt with the feel of a warm jacket. (a.k.a. the best of both worlds)

    Model wearing the knee-length jacket that looks like a plaid shirt with buttons down the front, big pockets on both sides of the chest and rolled cuffs.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this coat! Usually, I would wear a size S-M, but the only one left at the store was an XS. I tried it on, and it surprisingly fit! Even with a sweater underneath, it was still a good fit. I don’t know if I’d recommend sizing down though, it just happened to work out for me. I love the length of the coat, and the material on the inside. It's so warm!" —Kels

    Get it from Target for $50 (available in sizes XS-4X).

    3. A Levi's oversized sherpa trucker jacket you can drape over your shoulders when you jump the gun a bit and realize it's not quite cold enough for a jacket yet. We'll get there, don't worry.

    Model wearing the oversized black fuzzy jacket with pockets on both side of the chest draped over their shoulder

    Promising review: "It's June. That's ok. I have something to look forward to when fall arrives... THIS COAT. I've been looking for a 'denim jacket cut' fleece for a while. This is pricey, but it's so worth it. I ordered a small, and it fits baggy, but not huge. The length is long, but not too long. The sleeves are the perfect length. Also, it seems incredibly warm. Way to go Levi's!" —Suburbanstylista

    Get it from Amazon for $52.19 (available in sizes XS-XL and in six colors and patterns).

    4. A vegan leather studded jacket that'll make you stand out from the crowd — in the best possible way. Because you're different and your jacket choices need to reflect that.

    Promising review: "I have never been more pleased with an Amazon purchase. I ordered a size small, and it fit perfectly. It's light enough to layer a hoodie under or just a tee. It's perfect for summer nights and fall and insanely cute. I can't wait to buy more!!!" —Claire M

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S-2X and in eight colors).

    6. A patterned anorak with a removable fleece lining, meaning you basically get two jackets for the price of one because when it gets even colder, you can add the fleece for an extra dose of warmth.

    Model wearing the anorak  jacket with front zip, hood, and drawstring around the bottom in blue with a brush-like pattern in white on it

    Promising review: "I love this jacket. It has large pockets and quality zippers. The shell should be hand-washed in cold, line dry. It will need low-set ironing since it tends to wrinkle. I washed the fleece lining in cold, using household white vinegar, as with my other fleece garments. No fleece pilling that way. It's a great fall and spring jacket!" —Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $33.82 (available in sizes M-6X and in 14 colors and patterns).

    7. A hybrid jacket designed with a section of insulation on the chest to keep you warm but not too warm if there's a chill in the air in the morning.

    Model wearing the zip-up jacket in a light blue with a darker blue insulated section on the chest and vertical zip pockets on each side

    Promising review: "I love this jacket! It's breathable but thicker than a rain shell. It kept me warm mountain biking and just during everyday wear. The fabric is sort of stretchy too, super comfortable. It's a really good piece for fall or spring activities." —Shannon Suehr

    Get it from Backcountry for $76.97 (originally $139.95; available in sizes XS-XL and in mint and black).

    Reviewer wearing the oversized coat made of a fuzzy material with big front pockets and a collar

    Promising review: "I'm very happy with this jacket. I also get tons of compliments on it. It's defiantly a jacket that needs a sweater or sweatshirt under it if its cold out. There's not much of a liner to it, but great jacket for the fall." —Connie

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in 16 colors and styles).

    Promising review: "This is a great and stylish jacket for cooler climates.

It fit as expected, I ordered a medium, 5'4, 150lbs." —Allison Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $67.15 (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors).

    Get it from Walmart for $23.99 (originally $54.95; available in sizes XS-XXXL and in black and blue).

    13. A longline overcoat you can already see yourself wearing as you stroll down the street sipping a cup of hot chocolate.,

    Reviewer wearing the denim jacket with buttons down the front and button-front pockets on the top of each chest in light blue

    Promising review: "This was a really nice carry over for me from summer to fall. I wear all-cotton everything! I have a thicker blue jean jacket I wear later on, but this one is light. The price was right. There is no lining, but the pockets are big enough on both sides for my keys, phone, bus fare. It was a good buy." —Scarlett

I don't wear leather, but if you do, it looks like real leather. It doesn't smell funny or feel plastic like some. It's very well made. Plus, it's a great price. It fits as expected. They said this was in US sizes, and I confirm that to be true. I ordered a medium, and it fits perfectly. I highly recommend it!" —zhaowei998
