While we (thankfully) don’t need a sub-zero insulated coat, we do need a little help keeping warm and dry once the temp drops below 55 degrees and there are downpours for seven days straight. Plus, with puffer coats and thrift-store-inspired looks making a major comeback, layering is going to be lots of fun. Rock these nine types of toppers—no matter what Mother Nature has in store—all season long.
