For those who believe that a black jacket is always the answer, A) know you’re not wrong, and B) know that a little texture will go a long way. Here, velvet and quilting (swoon!) create a winner that promises to look amazing whether it’s out at 9 a.m. or 9 p.m.

In Full Bloom
A lush watercolour floral print transforms the sporty bomber with heart-stopping effect. For fall 2017 jackets, we appreciate an effortless team mate to high waist straight leg jeans, obvi, wearing it over a flowing midi length hemline. Add a contrasting print to the picture for bonus points.

What’s Up, Buttercup?
Buh bye, beige! A sunny shade breathes fresh air into the wardrobe staple that is la trench. And, oui, those ruffled cuffs bring something flirty to the table, too. The cheery hue is well positioned to lift a neutral #ootd, put it to work with something like a white shirt and navy wide-leg trousers.
