Approaching mid-September, there's a shift in the air. The temperature has not yet dropped, but we're starting to reach for our best knitted sweaters. There's no frost on the windows in the morning, but we've already swapped out our usual iced coffee for a more hearty morning brew. The top tell-tale sign that we're transitioning into autumn, however, is the return of the lightweight quilted jacket.
This versatile garment offers a multitude of layering possibilities. Whether worn on its own, layered over a knit sweater, or nestled beneath a woollen overcoat for those frosty days ahead, it stands as the most indispensable item in our outerwear arsenal. After all, this garment is truly a part of Scandinavian utilitarianism. That said, there's no need to sacrifice style for functionality. Our selection of Vogue-approved lightweight quilted jackets comes in an array of silhouettes and materials spanning classic padded nylon to artfully embellished cotton and sumptuously soft velvets.
There's no better way to warm up than with these 12 lighter layers come autumn.
