Collage by Tilden Bissell for W Magazin

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that it’s impossible to predict what’s to come. One thing that does remain consistent: The arrival of cooler weather. Rather than tossing on your old winter coat at the first sign of a crisp breeze, transition into the chillier days of fall with the perfect lightweight jacket. Plus, given that most of our social lives take place outside these days, it’ll be the most important part of your look. From classic khaki trench coats to wool blazers, cool leather jackets and funky faux furs, we’ve selected 13 of our favorite fall pieces to shop as we enter the new season.
