4 Favorite Coats for Fall Travel

Thank you, fall weather, for making it so easy to know which jacket to wear! Just kidding, you’re impossible.

It’s either still summer during the day at your destination, so you need to layer it up and disrobe while you are walking around. Or, it’s chilly, windy, and/or damp, but not quite cool enough for a winter coat. Hmm…
Here in San Francisco, it’s sunny and in the 70s and 80s during the day. By 5 p.m., though, it’s chilly. So frustrating! So what’s a gal to do? I say bring at least two coats this time of year but stick to options like blazers, trenches and light wool blends that fold up easily in your luggage. That way, you’ll have options!
Here are a few I’m crushing on right now.

Tweed Blazer


I love a great tweed blazer for fall. It makes you look so pulled together, even if you’re just wearing skinnies and a T-shirt. A blazer is also a great choice for travel—you can wear it on the plane, accessorize with scarves and some fun earrings, and you’re good to go.

Sporty Puffer


Doesn’t this time of year just make you want to get outdoors and hike? If you’re planning an active getaway, make sure you have a sporty jacket that’s going to keep you snug and cozy while you crunch around in the leaves. PS: This one packs down into a pocket and will take up zero space in your bag. It’s been a lifesaver for me on many chilly flights and cool mornings.

Faux Leather Moto

The leather moto is one fall trend that seems to make its way back ’round year after year. And for good reason. We could call this jacket a classic, I’d say. It will help you fit right in, whether you’re in New York City or Milan. Consider it an investment, because you’ll be wearing it a lot.

Wool Blend Coat


A lighter peacoat functions amazingly well for fall. They can still be bulky, though. So think of a straight wool blend jacket like this one as a longer blazer. It will help you look sharp, you can layer it up, and it will keep you warm, too! Plus, it still can pack easily (try placing it on top of your other clothes in your suitcase) and you can wear it pretty much anywhere. Don’t forget to pick out a fun color that pops.
