Traveling This Fall? Here Are 7 Effortless Outfit Sets to Pack

etoile isabel marant plaid coat

Isabel Marant Etoile Plaid Wool Blend Coat

“If you, like me, are looking to make coziness your #1 priority this fall, consider this brilliant plaid number. It's practically a fuzzy blanket that's socially acceptable to wear in public (and look how cool it looks when cinched with a belt!).” -Dena, Fashion Editor

the north face hooded jacket

The North Face Repellent Hooded Jacket

“I know it's smart to have a warm, waterproof jacket handy once temperatures start to drop, but so many rain jackets have that same cinched-at-the-waist look that I just don't love. This one, however, is fun, punchy and reminds me of the sort of thing an explorer would wear on a mountain, just a little more fashion-forward.” - Abby, Associate Editor

apiece apart coat

Apiece Apart Oversize Coat

"I might be getting ahead of myself by wishing for chilly weather but this ankle-grazing coat looks just as chic buttoned as it does open and I want to wear it this instant. Plus, as someone who is always cold yet still loves wearing miniskirts and sweaters, the extra length will come in handy for brisk walks to and from the office—and in my eternally-cold office." -Brianna, Commerce Editor

blanknyc moto jacket

Blanknyc Suede Moto Jacket

"I've been on the hunt for the perfect suede jacket, and this one checks all of the necessary boxes. It has that classic moto cut which makes any outfit instantly cooler and is made from super-soft suede to keep you ultra-cozy. Plus, I love the zipper detail on the sleeves." -Kara, Editorial Assistant

kappa puffer jacket

Kappa Metallic Puffer Jacket

“I’ve never met a statement jacket I didn’t like, and this cropped metallic one has my heart this fall. I love that it will spice up my otherwise simple, all-black wardrobe.” -Sarah, Editor

Ralph Lauren Fringed Leather Jacket

“This jacket from Ralph Lauren is everything I've been dreaming about for fall. Fringe, white leather and a Western aesthetic, so I can be the cowgirl of my dreams.” -Corley, Manager, People and Operations

tularosa plaid coat

Tularosa Plaid Coat

“British tweed is my M.O. this fall, mainly because I want to evoke both an artsy London socialite and Oliver Twist. Also, name a better pattern that's easy to pull off with black, brown, navy or white. I'll wait.” -Roberta, News Editor
