1. The Boyfriend Blazer

Longer, boxier and more oversized than your classic blazer, the boyfriend blazer is an effortlessly chic way to elevate any ensemble. The boyfriend blazer is one of the most versatile jackets you’ll ever have in your wardrobe, because it can be worn so many different ways. Pair it with ripped jeans for a more casual look, bike shorts if it’s still sweltering outside or match it to trousers for an extremely cool suit vibe.

This oversized check blazer was practically made for fall—but can totally work for just about any season. Try pairing it with black bike shorts or even a plain white tee and leggings.

2. Belted Jackets

Cinch that waist, baby. Belted jackets are so in for fall and winter, and you’ll be amazed at how many easy ways you can style them. When it’s still too hot outside to wear a million layers, you can add a thin cami underneath one of these jackets and then belt it at the waist. No one will even know you aren’t wearing much underneath. Alternatively, you can pair a belted jacket with your favorite lightweight turtleneck and leave it open for a different look. The versatility, though!

3. Leather Lewks

Whether it’s a simple leather moto jacket or a bold statement leather look, consider leather jackets a go-to for all seasons in 2020. For fall, you can pair a leather jacket with just about anything—from a cool midi dress and sneakers to high-waisted black jeans and heels. Don’t be afraid to go a little bold and test new waters with this trend, too. You might be surprised just how versatile a maximalist leather jacket can be.

4. Puffers

Puff, puff, but don’t pass on this fall and winter trend. Puffer coats have become a warm and trendy staple in past few years, and in 2020, they’re cuter than ever. Try making a statement with your puffer coat this year and opt for a fun pattern or bright color. You’ll stay both on-trend and cozy AF all season long. Start with a shorter puffer, then move on to something longer as the temperatures drop!

This trend is perfect for keep things both cute and casual all season long. You can go with a cropped corduroy jacket, turtleneck and high-waisted jeans or an oversized corduroy jacket with your favorite graphic tee and midi skirt. There’s no wrong way to wear this trend, so don’t be afraid to go for it.
