21 Best Autumn Jackets & Autumn Coats For 2023

We’re so ready to slip into the best autumn jackets. Apart from the fact that this summer has been less than glorious, we’re definitely feeling a chill in the air. It’s too early for a winter coat but too cool to rely on a cardigan but these autumn jackets are exactly what your wardrobe needs during the tricky trans-seasonal period.

Remember, though, just because you’re wearing them in an in-between season, doesn’t mean they need to relegated when the cold does properly set in. With a few clever styling tricks you can layer these women’s autumn jackets and coats well into winter, meaning you’ve made a clever purchase — and a more sustainable one, too.

What are the best new-in autumn jackets that will stand the test of time?

Shirt styles are super versatile — we’re talking that modern classic: the shacket. You can throw them on over a t-shirt, tie them round your waist then layer them under a thicker wool coat when it’s properly winter. Arket’s denim shirt jacket is a particular favourite for its utility-styled pockets.

2023 has seen bomber jackets have a major moment, thanks to the viral charcoal grey one from Zara earlier this year. If you managed to nab one we’re jealous — it would make the perfect autumn jacket too, otherwise we’re into AllSaints’ leather bomber. Imagine it with baggy jeans and loafers… *chef’s kiss*

Biker jackets are a fashion perennial — they’ll always add an edge to your outfits — and H&M has a brilliant faux leather biker jacket with a price tag under £45. Team them with smart cigarette pants for an iconic look. We’re also blazer stans. Whether you choose an oversized blazer for a high fashion edge, Anine Bing’s double-breasted tweed style or a leather blazer with Y2k vibes (we’re here for Remain Birger Christensen’s retro chocolate style) they’ll all become your year-round go to.

Don’t forget patchwork-detailed quilted jackets either. Yes, they are cosy and quilted, but they often come in a mix of paler colours, meaning they don’t feel too heavy this early into the new season. Cara Cara’s Velvet-Trimmed Quilted Silk Jacket is a fall jacket dream.

Whichever style of autumn coat you choose, keep wearing it through the winter with clever layers (Uniqlo HEATTECH is our fashion team’s secret weapon when you want to keep warm) and the addition of a scarf, hat and gloves obvs.
