With fall weather hopefully on our heels, it’s time to stock up on light jackets and coats – we all know that it really doesn’t get chilly in Texas until November (and by chilly, I mean 50’s-60’s), so as we transition into these cooler months, we really only need light layers to keep us comfortable. A few styles I look for this time of year include a featherweight trench, a sweater coat (this one is also pretty great), and a cape style coat (love this printed one too!). It also doesn’t hurt if a jacket or coat is reversible – so many styling options! Love this belted camel one and this leather-trim reversible coat. The open style of all these options (shorter sleeves, belted vs buttoned) make them perfect for transitional wear. Neoprene is also a wonderful, light fabric that’s ideal for these next few months!

From December-February, it really starts to cool down here in Dallas – a heavier coat is then needed, and I have plenty of those on my list as well. I’m obsessed with this twill cargo coat by Alexander Wang – utilitarian chic at its best, don’t you think? Shearling is a big trend this season (this Tory Burch tote is at the top of my “Most Wanted” list!), and this Akris parka is hitting all the high notes. Leather cuffs makes this other Akris coat another winning choice – classic and cool. Stock up on these fabulous pieces and more designer duds at Nordstrom!
