The colder months are slowly creeping in and that means an extra layer is in order. We’ve rounded up the must-have autumnal jackets to put on your wish-list

For this season, we’re ditching the long trench coats of the past and looking towards a shorter, more cropped style – a nod to a classic french look. We’re embracing a simple, boxy silhouette and donning jackets embellished with standout, big buttons for extra flair.


Here’s how to style it

This jacket is the perfect addition to your everyday t-shirt and blue jean staples that so many of us throw on on the daily. Looking for the full Parisian power? Then just add your favourite ballet flats, simple. And the elegance that this structured jacket brings to any ensemble will ensure that you always look put together, no matter the event.

If you’re searching for more of an evening look, then simply pair it with your favourite slip dress and favourite heels.

What to buy



Ba&sh black jacket

If you can’t quite make it to Paris, then go fully French with this jacket instead. The simplicity of which is what makes many of us fall head-over-heels for it. In fact, this particular jacket is much-loved by our very own fashion assistant Amelie Langensköld, who has sported this number on many occasions now.


Rose Murdoch

Rose Murdoch black jacket

The oversized fabric buttons of this piece help to give it a military-style feel, while Rose Murdoch plays some kind of magic on the wool that ensures a subtle sheen. Plus, the additional panelling help to add intrigue and a subtle dimension to this enviable piece of outerwear.



Totême black wool jacket

Swedish brand Totême is supreme when it comes to elevated staples and this wool jacket is no exception. It will keep you at the perfect temperature thanks to the warm material and open front design, which allows a little breeze and helps to give a flash of your chic ensemble beneath.


Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant cream jacket

The cream marled jacket, with its tailored fit, high round neck and leather button fastenings, will undoubtedly keep you cosy in the upcoming months. Use it to easily dress up a simple, casual everyday look as its structured nature, in combination with a looser fitting trouser, will help ensure even your jeans feel elevated.


Saint Laurent

Saint Laurent black and white jacket

This option, with its black and white colour scheme, will help to bring a little more drama into your routine. The dual colour tweed is an ode to the classic Chanel suit jackets and we can’t get enough of it – the perfect addition to your wardrobe. And plus, the simple colour scheme will ensure it can be easily paired with a mix of pieces. Easy.
