FALL JACKETS TO GO
When your phone tells you that the temperature is 92 with 100 percent humidity, it's hard to even think about jackets. We at True Fashionistas consignment store, Naples, Florida, put our game face on beneath our Dior sunglasses. Then we get to work knowing full well the rest of the world (and us soon enough. No, really.) is looking for the perfect fall jacket to complement your killer seasonal outfits.
JACKETS TO GO - DENIM
Denim is a True Fashionista wardrobe staple, y'all. We love our jeans as well as the array of options in said jackets. Leave it to Gucci to come up with a jacket made from certified organic denim. It's a piece of clothing that's always relevant, with year-round wearability, so there's no wrong time to invest in one. Plus, designers offer updated versions almost every season.
The fall fashion weeks featured a handful of chic, pared-back looks. This year, the denim offerings to look for (with pumpkin latte in hand) are stylings from Victoria Beckham, Erdem, Hermès, Dries Van Noten, and Dior. Frame puts a nice twist on the standard style with a series of stressed touches. Were you looking for colored denim? Khate the Richard jacket comes in a beautiful stark white, while Zara also offers a delightful green in several shades. Green denim? YES. You also don't want to miss the True Fashionista offering from McQueen featuring crazy oversized cocoon sleeves.
JACKETS TO GO – LEATHER
It's the perfect fabric to transition from fall to winter, and like denim, it just works. Leather's got so much to offer; it's well worth the investment this season. When chosen wisely, leather is a perennial outerwear option that will serve you well for years. Never mind that every True Fashionista It girl, from celebrities to Instagram influencers, or an off-duty model, looks to this staple piece to anchor all the looks in her wardrobe. The leather jacket has both timeless appeal and style credibility for eons, from vibrant statement pieces to street-smart black moto jackets.
We'll go first and foremost with the classic moto leather jacket. Betcha didn't know that its asymmetrical zipper was initially designed in 1928 by NYC-based designer Irving Schott to prevent it from digging into motorcyclists' bodies. We can thank The Editorialist for that nugget of knowledge.
Luxury brands continue to update this look. This year we've got Versace's version offering gold-tone hardware and signature Versace emblems like Medusa coins and (Punk rockers unite!) a safety pin zipper. Gucci's smooth leather jacket incorporates both if you can't decide between gold and traditional silver hardware! If you're looking to stray beyond tradition, check out Virgil Abloh's Off-White logo-emblazoned version or Blank NYC's gold, yes gold leather jacket. Find a varied selection of designer leather jackets at Naples' best consignment store, True Fashionistas.
JACKETS TO GO – BLAZERS
Look sharp this fall with this season's range of designer blazers, including the varied collection at True Fashionistas, the best designer consignment store. Whether you choose to wear them on the go or to a meeting, they're sure to dress up any True Fashionista outfit that lies beneath.
Making their spin on the traditional blazer with a tailored buckle option is how Off-White is rolling this fall. Complete with flattering ruching and a waist belt, this jacket oozes power and confidence. You'll enjoy the lightweight wool blend that makes it an irresistible piece for breezy autumn evenings.
Versace's rollout for fall features a mix of bright colors and gorgeous prints. From pleated, double-breasted looks to a charm-embellished satin version or Barocco print silk, these blazers are a must!
For a slightly more traditional look, try Ganni's oversized camel cotton-linen blend wrap blazer. Its sleek lines and harness button waist placed to the side amp up the classy look in a snap.
Go for simply traditional tailoring and classic lines with the latest from Karl Lagerfeld. Did we mention it's screaming fuchsia pink? You will NOT be overlooked!
JACKETS TO GO – SHACKETS
No, that's not a typo, it's a thing, and shackets are a hot trend this fall. To catch you up, shackets are jackets made from fabric that look like an oversized shirt. They're heavier than your typical shirt but lighter still than a pullover. You could go sustainable with a wool shacket by Scandinavian company Fjällräven with a high collar and full zip front covered by a layer of snap buttons. The wool is 20% recycled, so it's guilt-free.
You can also jump on the nineties resurgence and rock your plaid shacket. BB Dakota's version sports an exaggerated round collar, oversized silhouette, and classic plaid pattern. It's also made from cozy flannel, so in case you get caught outdoors on one of those end-of-season warm days, tie it around your waist, and done!
