As sad as it is to admit it, summer is definitely over. Labor Day has come and gone, the sun is setting sooner, and the temperatures are cooling down. It's time to swap your halter tops for long sleeves and trade out your cute shorts for pants. It's not all bad though. If you have a chic statement jacket or two in your closet, you won't mind braving the breezy days and chilly nights that autumn brings. Before fall gets officially underway, stock up on these must-have jackets from Shop Splash.
Capes are so popular because of the effortless yet professional silhouette that they create. If you've coveted a cape but haven't made the jump yet, invest in the Lenore navy cape. Made of luxurious suede, it features a back slit as well as two armhole slits for you to comfortably slip it on when the winds become too strong. Its open front without any buttons also lets you show off whatever nice shirt or dress that you're wearing underneath.
Another big trend is boho clothing, and why not? Giving off a 60s vibe will always be fashionable. Nostalgia lovers should pick up the Florin fringe jacket in pretty off-white. The entire garment is covered in plush fringes. The front placket is totally open, again, giving you a great chance to show off what you're wearing while still staying nice and toasty this autumn. You may want to dust off your old bell bottom jeans to pair them with this jacket.
A more modern take on fringe, the Mika fringe jacket is black and made of rich suede. Long fringes dangle from the end of the jacket as well as from the three-quarter length sleeves. It's totally in with its high-low hem. There's a metal zipper down the front so that you can protect yourself from the fall elements. With its close fit, this fringe outerwear could also double as a shirt, and you may feel tempted to wear it as one.
Of course, the return of fall means no more summer vacation. If you're going to spend a lot more time at the office, at least look good doing in it in the IRO Paris Hurley jacket. This white knit garment is nice and light for those in-between days when it still gets a bit warm. Your skin can breathe with the small perforations on the shoulders. While there is a front zipper, the pockets on either side can zip up too. Prepare to be the envy of the office when you wear this beauty.
Similar in function is the IRO Doan jacket, but this one is undoubtedly sportier yet still ideal for work or home. With a bomber design, elastic banding trim keeps it contoured to your body while a lace panel in the center adds a nice visual touch. You could also wear this as a shirt in and of itself or you can display what you're wearing underneath. Try color blocking with this black zipped jacket for some fun visual combinations.
Those that want a touch of drama with their outerwear will love the IRO Otavia jacket. White with colorful geometric print throughout in hues like black, red, and blue, this zips at an angle and not straight down the center. The result is a structured, appealing piece that's just unique enough to become your favorite jacket. You can shop this, all the looks above, and much more today at Shop Splash.
