Early fall is the perfect time to scout out the jacket that will cary you through the coming months of cold weather. And while we know outerwear can be expensive, we also firmly believe that a good jacket is a worthy investment. Models Olivia Ponton and Ellie Thumann have declared this to be true on their recent tasteful fall adventures.

Ponton shared a TikTok on Oct. 11 from her recent trip to upstate New York, sporting a fabulous tan fur-lined jacket, experiencing the changing leaves for the first time in her fall best.

Thumann, likewise, took to her Instagram to share a carousel of her fall attire on a recent trip to the mountains, showing off a lovely black-and-brown checkered fur coat.

A stylish garment to layer on top of your other pieces can be a great way to make a fall and winter outfit pop. With dozens of versatile styles to choose from, finding a piece that is flexible enough for consistent wear in the coming months can be overwhelming. Inspired by Ponton and Thumann, we’ve taken the liberty of combing through many of the styles ourselves and have curated a list of our favorite jackets fit for the season.
