It’s cooling off out here in Southern California – at least in the mornings and evenings which means it’s great running weather 🙂 but also means we get to pull on a lightweight jacket, sweater or sweatshirt! It’s that time of year when dressing in layers is key because typically by mid-afternoon at least out in So Cal we are usually in the mid 70’s for a couple of hours and I am quickly shedding that extra layer.
After a hot summer, it is fun to add that extra layer . . . so today I am rounding up my favorite lightweight outerwear for the fall.
Utility jackets are so great because they match everything! You can wear them with jeans, leather, leopard, stripes, chambray, florals, etc etc etc. I love the look of the drawstrings and the fact that the sleeves are elastic so you can push them up and they don’t fall back down. I also love the variety of colors, it’s no longer just camouflage or the army green (though those are classic colors) but you can find these twill jackets in navy, pink, maroon, black and more.
My top Utility Jackets picks:
Few things have the versatility and staying power of a denim jacket! A good denim jacket works all year long but is especially perfect for fall when you still might be wearing a summer tank or dress and can easily add a denim jacket to make it work for the season. This is the time of year I am constantly grabbing my jean jacket to put on with jeans, sweats, leggings, dresses and even on certain days my workout clothes.
Fall is a great season to try a darker wash jacket, a black denim one or how about a fleece/sherpa lined denim jacket that will keep you warmer as the temperatures drop.
My top Denim Jacket picks for the fall:
Moto Jackets are the ultimate in cool! I love them in leather, suede, denim, sherpa, anything…they are flattering and comfortable. You can look relaxed and easy, yet polished. You can most certainly spend a lot on a leather moto jacket but you don’t need to, to look and feel just as chic. 🙂

Find anything you like? I just bought a new utility jacket in navy that I am loving wearing over tees and leggings. Have fun with layering with tees, sweaters and lightweight jackets over the next few months! Fall is fun, happy season and use a jacket as a way of popping some color into your wardrobe. 🙂
