19 Transitional Jackets That’ll Make You Stop Missing Summer

It’s time to embrace autumn’s chill

We know you’ve been scrolling through your Instagram feed, looking back at all of your summer memories with fondness—maybe a little bit of sadness—as you begrudgingly carry on with your gloomy, dark-out-by-6pm day.

However wonderful the warm weather and freedom of summer may be, though, we mustn’t forget all the good things that come with fall: Halloween, pumpkin pie, and the fact that you finally get to wear actual clothes without melting. (Don’t act like you don’t get excited when layering season hits full swing).

For many of us, we’ve barely gotten a taste of fall until recently (it’s been a late start for us New Yorkers, that’s for sure). It’s finally starting to get chilly, and it’s only going to get colder from here. But what to wear during this in-between time? We rounded up 19 transitional jackets, perfect for that hard-to-dress-for fall weather. From velvet bombers and painted denim to classic leather biker jackets, how could you not be excited?

Finally, we have a reason to let go of summer for good—at least until next May. Check out our picks of the season, below.
