Autumn's clothing transition period can be a tad awkward. You can't get away with summer's crop tops, but it isn't time to pull out your cozy wool sweaters either. My tip: layer, layer, layer. This fall I am all about jackets, ponchos and a blanket scarf. Keep your jacket light, but warm.
Here are my favorite outerwear pieces that are closet essentials this fall...
THE LEATHER JACKET: A FALL CLASSIC
Take my word for it, the leather jacket is never going to go out of style. Ever. It's cut and style may change with trends, but #leatherweather isn't going anywhere. This jacket faithfully completes everything from your most lackluster fall outfits, to that perfect holiday party dress. I have sworn my allegiance to the leather jacket and will not be looking back!! Take a cue from Nicole's jacket, which is the perfect way to complete her laid-back look.

THE DENIM JACKET: ANOTHER FAVE FOR THIS TRANSITION PERIOD
Another jacket that I can assure you will never (ever) go out of style is denim. Trust me, this staple will long outlive us all. This season wear yours with edgy skirts, blanket scarfs and colorful accessories. Jane's look is warm yet far from boring!!
THE PARKA: FOR DIFFICULT DAYS
The parka is happening this season- and not just for the arctic. This jacket has a sporty flair and promises you absolute comfort, making it hard to resist. Wear it in neutrals (hold the bright blues for your handbag please), for the perfect go-to on those "freeze warning" mornings. Jessie looks anything but drab in her parka!!

THE POP OF COLOR
Fall jackets in vibrant colors are so popular this season, and they are the perfect way to brighten up a chilly fall morning. Stick to classic silhouettes (like the peacoat, blazer or trench) for this trend, and make sure your under layers are in neutral colors to really make your coat pop!! Christina does a great job showing how fabulous this look can be.
