Jackets. The word can positively send (metaphorical) shivers down the spine during the heat of late summer. Nonetheless, fall’s arrival is imminent, and to prepare accordingly now is the ideal time to begin a seasonal jacket search. The early shopper gets the best pickings of all the new arrivals that have hit the stores, and New York City currently has a bevy of on-trend and divine coats. Whether you identify as a minimalist or a maximalist, there’s a coat for you. Read on for our guide to shopping the fall jackets to buy now and love later.

Century 21

1.) The leather moto is a piece that is quite literally timeless. And no one does a more stylish or fluid version than Rick Owens, whose asymmetrical lambskin piece looks lustrous when rendered in a deep rust hue. Century 21, 22 Cortlandt St.,

 Kirna Zabete

2.) Believe it or not, the tried-and-true puffer was a designer favorite for fall, strutting down runways from New York to Paris. Sacai’s colorblock style is both chic and useful with unique details like side fastenings and a hot pink trimmed collar. Kirna Zabete, 477 Broome St.,



3.) Capes are among the coziest silhouettes come fall and winter, and complete a look whether you pair it with pants or tights. This wool knit jacquard piece by Burberry is a showstopper and will be a keepsake for seasons—and years—to come. Burberry, 444 Madison Ave.,

 Dave's New York

4.) Ideal for the tricky transitional weeks as the temperatures begin to cool off, the utility jacket by Carhartt is a must. Luckily, the style is wildly on trend, and is an easy piece to throw over any fall ensemble. Dave’s New York, 581 Sixth Ave.,


5.) There is no going wrong with a bomber jacket, simultaneously simple and sporty. Maje has created a gorgeous version, made with lustrous duchesse-satin and featuring a bird appliqué and ribbed varsity stripes. Maje, 417 Bleecker St.,


6.) Rain in the fall? Inevitable. Make cloudy days less gloomy with a Hunter waterproof jacket. The Scottish brand has been making rain gear since the 19th century, and their modern prints (we love the botanical motif) are perfect for the 21st. Bloomingdale’s, 1000 Third Ave.,
