Calling all 2023 fall and winter brides: Your big day is right around the corner. And whether you live in a warm or cold climate, you may be looking to style your wedding dress with a sleek bridal jacket to add an extra layer for outdoor photos or just because you like the look. From perfectly tailored, cropped long-sleeved jackets like this one from Banana Republic to a faux fur option like this pick from Anthropologie, there are plenty of styles available. “There is something so special and classic about a white fur and delicate lace detailing. For a silk, satin or lace dress, I'd opt for a fur coat option,” says stylist Rachel Newman.

How to Choose the Right Bridal Jacket for Your Dress

The right bridal jacket for your wedding dress comes down to a few things. First, and most importantly, consider your personal style and the dress silhouette you’re wearing. Additionally, you’re going to want to pay attention to the forecast (do you need something a bit warmer than a jean jacket?) and the materials of your wedding dress. If you’re having a black tie wedding, you can’t go wrong with faux fur. “I love the idea of a cropped or oversized white fur coat over a wedding dress for a black tie or cocktail attire wedding,” advises Newman.

20 Gorgeous Fall Wedding Shoes Whether You’re the Bride, Bridesmaid or a Guest

Best Cropped Tweed Jacket

1. Banana Republic Mara Tweed Blazer

Banana Republic

  • What We Like: arm fringe, single button front
  • What We Don’t Like: only available in an off-white shade
  • Material: tweed
  • Size Range: 0 to 20, regular, tall and petite

If your empire waist gown needs a bit more personality, this tweed jacket with fringe sleeves will do just the trick. It has a tailored, sleek fit and the fringe gives it a business in the front, party in the back effect. Plus, the off-white shade will complement your dress and give it some additional texture, too.

Best Non-White Faux Fur Jacket

2. Nookie Tatiana Faux Fur Jacket


  • What We Like: fluffy silhouette, cropped
  • What We Don’t Like: polyester isn’t very warm
  • Material: faux fur, polyester
  • Size Range: XS to L

Even though this jacket isn’t made with the warmest material, it sure does look the part. The brown and cream blend of faux fur gives an old Hollywood effect that would look extra glamorous over your wedding dress. The cropped waist fit will complement most gown silhouettes, while the hook and eye closure in the front is easily adjustable.

Best White Jean Jacket

3. TheMisstoMrsShop Bridal Denim Jacket


  • What We Like: personalized text, pearl detailing
  • What We Don’t Like: thread color isn’t customizable
  • Material: denim
  • Size Range: S to 3XL

Grab this for your bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower and wedding day. This white jacket will add a personalized touch to every outfit as you get ready to change your last name. The pearl details and stitching are cute and feminine, while the denim lends a more casual effect.

4. PartOfMeDesign Wedding Jacket


  • What We Like: faux fur collar, wool and cashmere blend
  • What We Don’t Like: sleeves may fit cropped if you have long arms
  • Material: wool, cashmere
  • Size Range: 2 to 14

Classic glam is a popular wedding day look and this faux fur lined collar adds just the right amount of charm. The pearly buttons run all the way down the jacket and the shortened length is perfect for a ball gown. If you’re worried about being cold, don’t be, because the wool-cashmere blend is extremely soft and cozy.

Best Pearl Detailed Blazer

5. Generation Love Nadia Pearl Blazer

Generation Love

  • What We Like: pearl detailing, padded shoulders
  • What We Don’t Like: scrunched sleeves
  • Material: polyester-spandex blend
  • Size Range: XS to XL

A pearl-embellished blazer is a great option for the minimalist bride who still wants a little sparkle. The sleeves are scrunched on this one, so if you’re looking for something long sleeved, this may not be for you. It has a longer fit with a one-button front if you decide to close it.

Best Open-Front Cropped Jacket

6. DB Studio Faux Fur Jacket

David's Bridal

  • What We Like: three-quarter sleeves, high collar
  • What We Don’t Like: polyester isn’t very warm
  • Material: polyester
  • Size Range: S to XL

This simple faux fur coat will keep your chest and back covered while showing off the rest of your wedding dress. It’s very cropped, making it ideal for most gown silhouettes. It also has a hidden button in the front in case you want to close it, which makes the collar really pop, in our opinion.

Best Teddy Coat

7. Camila Coelho Francisca Coat

Camila Coelho

  • What We Like: longline, extremely plush
  • What We Don’t Like: won’t fit well over ball gowns
  • Material: polyester
  • Size Range: XXS to XL

Even though we don’t have an upcoming wedding, we may get this coat anyway because it’s incredibly chic (and on sale). The long, fluffy coat is giving us Cruella de Ville and Kris Jenner vibes for that extra glam, HBIC look. It has wide lapels and front buttons if you want to keep it closed. If you wear this on your wedding day, odds are you’ll be flaunting it in the winter months long after.

Best for Winter Weddings

8. Canada Goose Marlow Parka

Canada Goose

  • What We Like: belted, very warm
  • What We Don’t Like: not very formal
  • Material: ventera, duck down
  • Size Range: XXS to 3XL

If warmth is your goal, you can’t go wrong with a Canada Goose parka. This one skims the shins in length and is made to withstand up to -22-degrees and below temps because of the duck down filling and durable ventera outer layer. Whether you’re saying your nuptials atop a mountain in Telluride, Colorado or you live in an area with brutal winters, this coat will be a worthy investment long after you say “I do.”

Best Faux Fur

9. Unreal Fur Tirage Faux Fur Jacket

Unreal Fur

  • What We Like: long sleeves, waist length
  • What We Don’t Like: not very formal
  • Material: acrylic faux fur
  • Size Range: XS to XL

A fully long sleeved, faux fur jacket is going to give your wedding day look that winter wonderland vibe you may be searching for. This jacket is made of acrylic faux fur, so it isn’t going to be the warmest option of the bunch, but that’s okay because it looks toasty. Adorned with four front buttons, you can button your jacket all the way up or keep it open.

Best Feather Blazer

10. Amanda Uprichard X Revolve Herald Blazer

Amanda Uprichard

  • What We Like: feather cuffs, fitted waist
  • What We Don’t Like: won’t fit over ball gowns
  • Material: polyester and ostrich feather
  • Size Range: XS to L

A crisp, white blazer is a great addition to a simple wedding look. This one has feather detailing along the cuffs for a dash of flair that a minimalist bride who wants a teensy bit of glam will appreciate because of the clean lines and subtle details. The waist is nipped in a little, so we think it will look best over A-line and fitted dress styles.

Best Moto Jacket

11. BlankNYC Faux Leather Jacket


  • What We Like: edgy, cropped fit
  • What We Don’t Like: won’t align with all wedding themes
  • Material: faux leather
  • Size Range: XS to L

The buttery soft faux leather will look lovely over a silk, lace or satin wedding dress. It has a cropped fit to go well with fit and flare, A-line, mermaid and other silhouettes with cinched in waists. If you’re an edgy bride who wants to add a bit of flair to her photos, this sleek jacket should do just that. The back bottom hem also has a bit of stretch if you decide to zip it up.

Best Jean Jacket

12. DearlyThreaded Denim Bridal Jacket


  • What We Like: oversized, floral embroidery
  • What We Don’t Like: font isn’t customizable
  • Material: denim
  • Size Range: S to 2XL

Denim jackets are continuing their reign as the most popular bridal jackets. This one can be customized to display your last name and some lovely floral embroidery along the back. (Note: You can’t customize the thread or denim color.) It has a slightly oversized, relaxed fit that you’ll enjoy wearing all night long. “The jackets are high quality, cute, and reasonably priced! If you are looking to buy a personalized jean jacket for you or somebody you know, this is the sign to do it! My sister wore it during the entire wedding reception and she even took it to Cabo San Lucas with her,” one customer raves.

Best Faux Fur Trimmed Cape

13. ASOS Jayley Cape


  • What We Like: faux fur trim, kimono sleeves
  • What We Don’t Like: one-size only
  • Material: wool blend
  • Size Range: one-size

We picture this cape being worn over a simple silk or satin dress. The faux fur trim will add a little drama and seasonal touch to your look while offering a smidge of warmth if it’s extra chilly. It’s longer lined and will look beautiful draped off the shoulders as well. The wool blend is great for keeping you warm between photos, too.

Most Affordable

14. Belle Poque Bolero

Belle Poque

  • What We Like: shows off the dress, ruffled bottom hem
  • What We Don’t Like: no button closure
  • Material: cotton-spandex blend
  • Size Range: S to 2XL

An option that’s completely open in the front to show off the bodice of your dress is great for the bride who has an eye for details. This bolero stays low profile basically just wrapping up to your back and over your arms for a little extra warmth. It’s made of a cotton-spandex blend, so it won’t stretch much, but it has enough give for you to give your partner a hug. “[It’s the] perfect shrug to cover my arms and back during our chilly, windy March wedding. The ruffled back hem and lace on the sleeve hems make this shrug so beautiful and it matches perfectly with the lace on my wedding dress,” raves one reviewer.

Best Tulle Shrug

15. Anthropologie Tiered Tulle Shrug


  • What We Like: tiered, short sleeve
  • What We Don’t Like: no warmth
  • Material: tulle
  • Size Range: one-size

Going for a more decorative piece of outerwear? We love the dimension of this tiered tulle shrug. It’s short sleeved and has a wide collar that lays to the side, so it doesn’t squish your neck. The tulle is very sheer, so this would look great over a dress with a lot of detailing or an open back.

What Other Outerwear Can A Bride Wear Over Her Dress to Keep Warm?

Bridal jackets can range from blazers to fur coats to leather jackets and even cropped, draped shawls with arm holes, which covers a lot of ground, but there are some other options you canconsider for your wedding day as well. Perhaps a long cape is more your style, especially if you’re going for a woodsy wedding theme.Or you may want a cozy wrap to drape over your shoulders for a little extra warmth. Still not quite what you're looking for? Ask your nearest bridal gown store about adding sleeves or even sewing your outerwear to your dress if you plan to wear it all night long.

What Are the Top Bridal Jacket Trends for Fall and Winter 2023?

Newman says that the best way to encapsulate the bridal jacket trend is to go with a jacket that contrasts with the material of your dress. “I love the contrast of leather and lace together,” she suggests. And even if you want less of a contrast and something more casual for photos, leather is still one of her favorite picks. “Leather and chiffon paired together also give off more of a casual look,” she says. “I think the [bridal jacket] trend is fun, and you can definitely make it your own. I also like the idea of draping any of the options over your shoulders and carrying a great clutch to style it,” she adds. Bottom line: Have fun with it—maybe you decide on an oversized white jean jacket but personalize it with some bedazzling and your new last name across the back.
