Fall Must Haves: 10 Marvelous Motorcycle Jackets

Newflash: you don’t have to ride a motorcycle to wear a motorcycle jacket! Hell, you don’t have to go anywhere near a motorcycle. Regardless of your ideal form of recreation, motorcycle jackets add a suggestion of down-for-anything edge to even your most virtuous fall look. It’s just as hip when worn as a contrasting touch to a girly dress as it is when paired with skinny jeans and a white T. The shape’s most well-known iteration is in black leather (or pleather, if you please), but we’re really feeling the equally cool, if slightly less obvious, fabric versions, in a bevy of fall-ready textures and colors. Click through for our ten picks from the softer side of the spectrum (half are under $100!), and see if you can resist picking up just one…

Shopping Guide: Lightweight Transitional Jackets

Okay, so it seems like spring is actually coming. We’ve had a few false starts (i.e. the entire winter), but now March is upon us and it’s only a matter of time before we’re breaking out those bathing suits. Just kidding, I won’t be because I hate swimming. I will be breaking out my … cutoffs.

Anyway, we’ve come to that sort of in-between stage where it isn’t truly warm yet you’re still sweating in your peacoat after a few blocks. This is where lightweight outerwear comes in. You can add hefty layers beneath it for warmth on cooler days or boil it down to just a T-shirt on warmer ones. Airy jackets were made for this purpose: the piece should casually wink at early springtime, but it shouldn’t make things traumatic should you get caught in serendipitous downpour (no silk!). Without further ado, here’s my roundup of seven buoyant layers perfectly suited for this transitional time.

Shopping Guide: 7 Coats That Are Actually Waterproof For Reals

Waterproof Coats
Even though I grew up in Oregon, where the unofficial state motto is, “We’re always wet!” I’m not sure I have ever bought a truly waterproof jacket. I gravitate toward coats that look like they should be waterproof (my Gap anorak, for example), only to have them soak through and disintegrate in the lightest drizzle, like so many papier-mache art projects on the way to the school bus. A recent downpour in London made me realize that it’s time to get serious. I’m over being wet and cold and miserable, so I’ve rounded up some seriously waterproof jacket options. Not water-resistant. Not water-repellent. Waterproof. They may not be the cutest coats you’ve ever seen, but they will do their job diligently. Read on if you’d like to stay dry this fall…
