The Jenni Kayne fall collection has done it again, with new pieces that adroitly evolve the coastal grandma aesthetic. (Plus, Meghan Markle loves the brand.) Also, while still keeping within the brand’s everything-goes-with-everything-else capsule collection vibe, JK has come out with new colors of its favorite designs, such as the cashmere cocoon cardigan (score). “When designing our fall collection, I focused on creating pieces that felt minimalist but also incredibly special and elevated," the designer told us. "We have a lot of relaxed silhouettes in both neutrals and earthy tones, which I think speak to current trends but also have a timeless touch. I was inspired by classic menswear this season, and our new trousers, blazers and coats help bring this vision to life."

How We Chose the Best Jenni Kayne Fall Items

We reviewed social media for what’s resonating with the international crowd that wears Jenni Kayne, as well as solicited our staff’s opinions on what was on their wish list. Additionally, we leaned into styles and silhouettes that our readers love, from ballet flats and moc clogs to separates that skew toward the dark academia trend. PureWow fashion editor Abby Hepworth cites rich neutrals like brown, cream, dark green, gray, butter yellow and caramel as being this fall’s color story, so we went with that. “The absolute chicest way to wear them is in a monochrome outfit (you don’t need everything to match exactly),” she says. “But however you mix them up, they’re sure to give off a quiet luxury vibe.” Finally, we read reviews of Jenni Kayne’s super-opinionated buyers and only kept the best of the best. Here are 15 layer-worthy Jenni Kayne hits to snatch up now.

What Sweater Is Best for Your Body Type? We Asked a Stylist

  • Size Range: XS to XXL

“I do love this cashmere overcoat,” says fashion editor Abby Hepworth. “It’s so timeless and looks incredibly cozy, plus the olive color is a great departure from more expected black or beige.” Hepworth wrote about how we’re all living for this hue for Fall ’23 (Shrek Era, anyone?) and we couldn’t be more charmed. The double-face wool-poly-cashmere fabric means there’s no need for lining, and that the coat looks as elegant hanging open as it does smartly tied with the belt.  

  • Size Range: XS to XXL

Butterscotch brown and dark olive are two of the moody colors this luxe classic is offered in, and it’s a core layering piece. “I really want this cashmere polo knit. I tend to run hot—especially when I wear cashmere—so I appreciate that this has a relaxed V-neck and billowy sleeves that can let a breeze or two slip through,” says associate fashion commerce editor Stephanie Meraz. “It looks so comfy and soft to wear while lounging around the house, and I’d also feel confident styling this for work or dinner.” 

  • Size Range: XXS to XXL

“I'm an oversize sweater fanatic when autumn rolls in, so this is 100 percent going in my cart,” says commerce editor Olivia Dubyak. “I love that it's cashmere so it looks and feels luxe and I can pop a cute button-down underneath for a preppy look.” In all-cashmere, this pullover is going to rival Dubyak’s love for the Jenni Kayne cashmere cardigan that she already lives in. 

  • Size Range: XXS to 3X

“I’ve lately become obsessed by the light weight and warmth of alpaca, and since seeing the elegant drape of this alpaca/polyamide/wool sweater on a Canadian influencer, I can’t wait to rotate it into my regular winter wardrobe,” says senior editor Dana Dickey. These sweaters are cut oversized with a drop shoulder and boxy shape, so they have a flattering drape. Last year, this sweater sold out in every colorway, so act fast. 

  • Size Range: One size

In rich hues like rust and charcoal, these socks are going to be as cozy peeling out of the top of your short boots as they are when you’re padding around the house wearing them all weekend. They are 75 percent cashmere, 15 percent nylon and 10 percent Tencel, a fabric blend milled to keep maximum cashmere warmth while upping the durability factor. 

  • Size Range: XS to XXL

Meraz called out the classic oversize blazer as a linchpin of a French Girl Fall wardrobe. This gorgeous new style from Jenni Kayne fits the bill, in a just-heft-enough wool-poly blend that’s woven in a herringbone pattern. It comes in of-the-moment yet classic shades of camel and dark green, and we see it as the extra layer we need heading out the door this fall. 

  • Size Range: 36 to 41

The boot that will make you reconsider zippers and laces forever, these pull-ons are a re-launch from Jenni Kayne in the newsy hues of walnut, forest and black. The uppers are oiled leather, which means durability and good looks even as they look “lived-in” and the lug sole keeps you up over the puddles. “I bought the walnut color in my usual size and they fit perfectly,” says one reviewer. “These beautiful boots were comfortable from the moment I put them on. I wore them out when the rain was supposedly over, but it wasn’t. I was so worried that they would have wet stains, but they looked perfect the next day! On top of that, I received compliments the first night I wore them.” 

  • Size Range: 0 to 14

“So flattering! Pics do not give them justice,” says one reviewer. “These are incredible, just get them. Loose and flowy but fitted at the high waist. Looks so good with crop tops.” We’re sold after seeing these in person on a woman who paired the white pants with a white sweater…on a plane. It was a seriously chic commuter look and we’ll be busting these all-silk pants—a new style that’s already a bestseller—out for cocktail parties and holiday dinners all winter. 

9. Jenni Kayne Hyde Coat

  • Size Range: XS to XXL

“It’s gorgeous, beautifully lined and just the right weight for fall,” says one reviewer about this new-for-fall-2023 coat. We’d just sum it up by saying it’s perfection, made of Italian fabric that balances the nubbiness of wool with the smoothness and light weight of acrylic. The taupe hue is equally in-between, promising to pair with warm browns, cool greys and even inky blacks. Finally, the three-button closure with long lapels is flattering on pretty much all figures.  

  • Size Range: XXS to XXL

New Jenni Kayne color alert: Amber is the warm deep light brown that’s going to change your mind about wearing beige or brown forever. The oversize, dolman-sleeve style is a JK bestseller. Once you layer this ultralight cashmere over everything (it’s so sexy over a slip dress for evening, btw) you’ll be a collector. “I was very hesitant about ordering this because I have a petite frame and was worried it would swallow me up,” says one reviewer. “It is absolutely the most flattering ‘oversized’ but feminine fitting sweater! Size down and you’ll have a perfect fit! 

  • Size Range: XS to XXL

This classic JK shape, the flowing yet figure-accenting slip dress, is out for fall in charcoal and moss colorways. In a 58 percent cupro/42 percent viscose blend, this ankle-length dress is the Jenni Kayne customer’s go-to for everything from layering over tights for the school drop-off to worn under a shirt and blazer for a profesh look. As one reviewer puts it, “This dress is the best. The fabric is thick enough to not need a slip with the slip dress and drapey enough to not hold wrinkles. It is the perfect start to a great outfit. Just throw on a jumper, a shirt, a necklace or a shawl.” 

  • Size Range: One size

Michigan winter snowy night or NorCal spring marine layer morning, this is the lightweight topper that will keep you warm without making you feel constricted. “Soft beanie for winter,” writes a fan. “Fits perfectly and folds nicely into my bag so I can bring with me on the go. The cashmere is high quality.” The only sticking point—buy rust colorway only or also olive? 

  • Size Range: XS to 3X

Now in a deep green hue called Valley, this viscose and wool button-front top is an easy choice when you want the comfort of a T-shirt but the style of a blouse, all without having to tuck anything in. We like that the gathered rounded neckline can be worn open to show off a neck stack. 

  • Size Range: XS to 3X

Now available in extended sizes, the secret of this cuddly half-robe, half-cardi item is…yak. That’s right, the 54 percent merino wool is blended with lightweight super soft yak to layer beautifully over T-shirts, blouses and even other sweaters. “I was looking for a comfortable, versatile ‘coatigan’ which would add an extra layer of warmth, look good and could be dressed up or down,” writes one reviewer. “I LOVE this sweater! It's warm, light and has just enough weight to drape well. I have tried so many cashmere, merino and blended cardigans and they're either huge and bulky or thin and clingy.” 

  • Size Range: XXS to 3X

Offered in this season’s trending hue of gorgeous bronze (as well as eight other soothing neutrals), this cardigan has wooed PureWow staffers of all sizes with its Linus blanket-like versatility. We’re all in, from the faux horn buttons to the ribbed knit’s weightless warmth. It’s not cheap, but in the words of reviewer Dubyak, “The adage is true in this case: You get what you pay for.”
