No matter the occasion or the outfit, these will guarantee a strong (and practical) Fall layering game. For a full list of all these essential pieces at ALL price points, go here (I rounded-up some great options!).

THE DENIM JACKET: A denim jacket is the most versatile item you could own and the most reliable piece of clothing for transitional weather. Get the most out of it by layering it underneath your coat once the weather gets even colder. SHOP: Budget (here too) | Mid Range | Splurge

THE UTILITY JACKET: The utility or safari jacket is perfect for casual outfits. Incredibly useful and a bit tomboy-ish, you can definitely wear it with any flannel, sweater or tee in your closet. SHOP: Budget | Mid Range | Splurge

THE LEATHER JACKET: Leather jackets not only add a cool vibe to your look, but they are great for layering as they are not bulky or heavy. Do yourself a favour and get a good leather jacket, it will be something you’ll have for years to come and you’ll find yourself wearing it with absolutely everything!
