    1. A classic faux-leather jacket to elevate your autumn style and up your cool-girl charm in the most effortless way. With this in your closet, you really won't need anything else.


    Get it from H&M for $49.99 (available in sizes 0-14).

    2. A faux shearling coat that I'm convinced is the embodiment of the word "cozy."


    Reviewers note to order a size up if you want the comfy, oversized feel. Ordering a size up also makes it easier to layer underneath.

    Promising review: "First off, this jacket is adorable and so soft. It is a little big, I wanted it oversized, but this was just a bit too much. Like other people said, the zipper is a little tricky, but if you go slow and make sure not to get the fabric caught, it’s perfect. For a fraction of the price, you get the perfect dupe for Urban or even Emma Chamberlain’s overpriced coat. It really looks exactly like what I wanted. Get one, you won’t be disappointed." —Nikki

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in 15 colors and sizes S-3XL).

    3. An oversized jean jacket for adding a breezy and timeless flair to any top or dress you layer it with. If this doesn't become a staple in your closet, I'll change my name.


    Promising review: "I have fallen in love with this jacket. I bought the medium. It doesn't fit tight but it's not too over-sized either. It's just right to wear with a shirt and roomy enough to wear with a sweater or hoodie. Sleeves are a little long but can be rolled up. It has two deep pockets inside on either side that are convenient and perfect place for me to keep my phone. It washes easy too!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in sizes S-L).

    4. A versatile blanket scarf you'll wear in different ways to suit your outfit. You can layer it as a shawl for parties, on a night out for a chic look, or cozy up in it for those sudden drops in temperature (because we all know how crazy fall weather gets). What else do you need from a scarf?


    Reviewers note how soft this scarf feels!

    Promising review: "I love love love this scarf. I ordered the camel colored one. It's soft, warm, and lightweight. It's like the best of a blanket scarf but without the weight." —MC

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in 18 designs).

    5. A utility jacket to grab when autumn is being annoying again and you don't know whether to button up or or strip down — this one's light enough for both situations!


    Get it from Walmart for $17.50 (available in sizes S-XL).

    6. A perfect bomber jacket that'll glam up literally everything in your closet. You never have to worry about complicated layering or drab outfits ever again. Behold, the ultimate masterpiece of all your future ~kewl~ looks.

    PrettyLittleThing, Boohoo

    Get the black one from PrettyLittleThing for $45 (available in sizes XS-L) and the green one from Boohoo for $20 (available in three colors and sizes XS-L).

    7. An embroidered bomber jacket (on the other hand) to take your casual 'fit to a night-out 'fit in seconds! You'll be warm *and* rockin'.


    Reviewers note that the jacket runs small so order one or two sizes up!

    Promising review: "This is a really nice jacket and quality made. It's great in that it's reversable and the embroidery is beautiful. The material is thick so it makes for a nice spring or early fall jacket." —Kat

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99 (available in sizes 4-18).

    8. A cute pullover hoodie you can throw on with anything to combat that biting fall chill.


    Get it from Uniqlo for $19.99 (available in sizes XXS-XXL).

    9. A long duster cardigan – it'll be assertive and change up even the most basic outfit. Pair with ankle booties and sweep the halls with this one!

    Forever 21

    Get them from Forever 21: the dusty pink one for $28 (available in sizes S-M) and the knit brown one for $34.99 (available in two colors and sizes S-L).

    10. A mustard denim jacket that's fall-appropriate, fashion-forward, and bold enough to pull your outfit together.


    Get it from ModCloth for $64.99 (available in two colors and sizes XXS-4X).

    11. A woolen lattice overcoat to fight that bitter autumn wind and look totally classy while doing it.


    Promising review: "This is exactly what I was looking for in terms of a longline coat for the fall/winter season. This coat fit exactly the way I wanted it too. The bottom came to the top of my thighs and had ample room for layering in the torso area. Super great jacket and an essential wardrobe staple for the colder months." —Molly

    Get it from Amazon for $52.99 (available in sizes S-XL).

    12. A trench coat for taking your fall OOTD from dull and forgettable to ~memorable.~ It's especially great for those fall days that veer on *extremely* cold and bitter! Let everyone envy your amazing fashion sense.

    13. A quilted jacket that'll be 100% functional and 200% stylish.

    American Eagle

    Get it from American Eagle for $79.95 (available in two colors and sizes XXS-XXL).

    Get it from Tillys for $24.99 (available in sizes XS-XL).

    15. A simple but fashionable double-breasted coat that's great for nights out and also for everyday.


    Promising review: "I was very surprised with quality. Fabric is wonderful — it adds an additional chic and 'expensive look.' Might be a little short for tall people, so give length the best judgement. Mine fits well, perfectly sized and length is perfect for 5'4''. I ended up buying other colors. My friend loved the coat on me and ended up purchasing several colors for herself. Now, we just need to make sure we wear different coats going out :)" —Maria N.

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in six colors and sizes 2-16).

    16. Or, if you want a coat that looks more like a dress and flares out for a very elegant look, strap up with some cute boots and go all out!


    The pockets are inside the seams!

    Promising review: "Phenomenal. I purchased this coat for a costume, but once I got it I couldn't help but wear it all the time! It's adorable, it hits just right at the waist and it's got great deep pockets (fits my huge Galaxy Note9 with room to spare) and it's so soft. It's such a great coat, I'm thinking about getting it in other colors!" —M. Jafarbay

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99+ (available in 11 colors and sizes S-XXL).

    17. A super chic faux fur jacket that'll make everyone want to cuddle with you.

    Nasty Gal

    20. A reversible poncho for when you want to be warm but don't feel like being cooped up in coats.


    Promising review: "I love it! It's lightweight, easy to carry around, and super warm. It's easy to wash and dry, doesn't hold water or make the machine heavy. It does let off a good amount of lint so be careful with what you wash it with. Plus it's the perfect size, big but not overwhelming. I'm 5'6" so it comes just under my bottom which is nice. It wraps around my front totally, no gaps for cool air to get in. The color is a beautiful and rich mix of what I think are cocoa colors. I have gotten lots of compliments on it. I will be getting another one soon enough." —TT

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in four styles).

    21. A zip-up hoodie because everyone should have at least one (or seven) in their closet.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I was pretty happy with this purchase. It's light enough to still wear on warmer days but still thick enough to keep me warm on cooler days. It's a perfect fall and spring jacket." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in 41 styles and colors, sizes XS-4XL).

    22. A zip-up vest to layer over your sweaters and shirts that's overall perfect for daily use.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "This vest is everything. Warm. Cute. And inexpensive. Perfect combo! Lightweight and warm, I initially bought this to go under a few coats I own that are roomy enough. The vest adds extra warmth for the cold New York winter weather. The material is nice enough to wear with dressy casual attire yet simple enough for jeans. And I love the length! Sits right on my hips (I'm 5'1— got the extra small). I ordered the black one first and loved it so much that I ordered the green one too. This will also look nice over a jean jacket or a sweater for the spring. Highly recommended." —Monica S.

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in ten colors and sizes XS-XL).

    23. A lightweight raincoat for those aesthetic (but super cold) rainy fall days.


    Promising review: "This jacket uses high-quality material, it's waterproof, and effectively keep the wind out. It feels very comfortable, and I love this style, it makes me look awesome." —Krasus

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in nine colors, and sizes S-XXL).
