    9 of the Best Autumn Jackets

    Over the last few days, the weather has been colder than usual, made me pull out all my Best Autumn Jackets. I have a collection of various jackets from all over that I often rely on when the weather changes. For those who are short on best outerwear during this time of year, here are some of our suggestions.


    The Jacket was created with warmth and comfort in mind suitable for any mountain-loving adventurer or cold-weather hiker. It is stretchy, moves with the wearer, perfect for a more active day out and it very warm. 


    The coat is made from high quality down insulation ensures you remain snug and warm regardless of the weather. Hikers would love this coat as it’s from the Jack Wolfskin collection with internal cuffs and faux-fur hood block out the wind.

I wore it over the weekend when the weather was horrid, it kept me warm and dry. The hoodie is detachable which is perfect if I don’t wish to have it on.

    Things to do in Autumn

    When you have dressed appropriately, it feels like you can do anything you want. The weather is no longer a limiting factor but a reason to go out, therefore, go explore your neighbourhood.

    • Go apple or pumpkin picking – we are hoping to head out pumpkin picking before Thanksgiving. Most importantly, have fun out there whilst the weather is still bearable. 
    • Take a walk in the fields – with all the National Trust properties close to home, we are spoilt for choice. Besides that, we have other fields that we can explore.
    • Play in the rain – with my new jacket, which is water repellent, dancing in the rain is back on. 
    • Bake some goodies – I am hoping to make some pumpkin cookies and apple pieces. 
    • Make some apple cider – because who doesn’t like apple cider in autumn?

    One of my favourite things to do in autumn is spending time with my family. We don’t often visit pumpkin patches but enjoy going apple picking.

      In Babushka’s opinion, fall starts the best time of the year. Here in Florida we don’t have much call for really heavy jackets, but those are lovely.

      Those jackets would be nice when we go up to Colorado this winter. I like the blue one.

      Having an autumn jacket is a must. If you fell warm and comfortable in a jacket, fall can be a beautiful season!

      These all look so cozy and warm. I love the first one that has the copper color! We have some really long winters and it is nice to have warm weather clothing.

      These look so warm and cozy. I am one of those people who get hot easily, so usually a thick sweater works for me.

      I love that pink jacket. I want one, nah, I need one!

      This is just a week too late for me having finally bought a similar looking down jacket last week. It is plum and I love it. It gives me something that looks a little nicer for those times I’m heading out in the Swedish weather but do not need to look like a total skier! A little more stylish!

    17. October 9, 2018 / 6:28 pm

      What some lovely jackets for autumn I have to admit I am awful for making sure I am warm. I should think about getting one of these for myself!

      Autum is my favourite season! And as much as I love oversized sweaters there are days when I do need to wear a jacket! I dont have one yet this season so thank you for your recommendations! Definitely will check them out as you gave some great options!

      Lovely autumn jacket picks! I completely agree that when you’re wearing the right thing in cold weather, you feel like you can do anything 🙂

    23. October 9, 2018 / 3:50 pm

      You have selected some really nice autumn jackets to wear during fall activities. The weather here is hit or miss, one day it is in the 80 ‘s and the next it is in the 50 ‘s! These would all be great options for the Midwest weather.

    24. October 9, 2018 / 2:51 pm
