Cold weather means you finally have an excuse to break out all the cozy coats, jackets and vests that are in your closet. This year it’s all about pieces that will elevate your basics items to make a new look. Plus, many of the jackets and vests below have prices under $150. Revamp your cold weather accessories this year and stay stylish all season long.

Have you ever been getting ready for an event in transitional weather and not know what to wear? The awkward months of the year where it could be hot or cold. The perfect answer is to layer your clothing. Vests are nice to have on-hand in case you need a little extra warmth but not a full on jacket. Another great option is a denim or cotton jacket due to it being lightweight and breathable. If you’re needing to dress your look up a trench or quilted coat is a perfect choice.

From suede designs to leather accents we have it covered with the top jacket and vest styles this year. Keep scrolling to find what you should add to your closet today.

J. Crew has an abundance of trendy options for men and women. The Sussex Quilted Vest is perfect for layering over almost any long-sleeve shirt or sweater in your wardrobe. Denim jackets are a huge trend for men this year and J.Crew’s Walden Wash features a warn and stylish look. The Barbour Tinford Jacket is a classic piece that you can wear year after year.

The women’s Downtown Field Jacket is versatile to dress up or down. Its gold detailing is military-inspired and very on-trend. Another great option for cooler weather is the Faux Fur Vest. It’s available in three different colors and even a cheetah print. Lastly, the Camo Utility Jacket will be a go-to in your closet. It’s perfect for layering over denim shirts, jeans or t-shirts.

Sporty jackets and vests are essential for casual weekends and can be dressed up or down. The Patagonia Better Sweater Zip Fleece Jacket is an excellent option for layering.

Adding suede into your wardrobe for fall is a must-have and I love the BLANKNYC Morning Jacket. It features edgy details and is versatile to wear with jeans or dresses. The Ralph Lauren Trench Coat is an impeccable option for cooler weather events where you need to have a more dress up look. It has a belt waist to slim your body and a chic high neck. A must-have everyday jacket is the Patagonia Los Gatos Fleece. This would be a great base layer for cooler weather or on its own.
