Yes, I heard you, and you love discussing the 2022 fall fashion trends, so today I wanted to talk about the top fall 2022 jacket trends.
All of the layering possibilities is what makes fall fashion so much fun, and having a few good jackets is essential to creating a variety of fall outfits. Of course, that begs the question, what jackets should I have in my closet this season???
A lot of the jackets coming out this fall are relaxed and even oversized, but they don’t have to be. When shopping for jackets, it’s important to understand your body type and what looks best on you. I prefer structured styles, and I usually look best in shorter jackets, so this year’s trends aren’t getting me terribly excited. I’m working on figuring out how to interpret them in a way that aligns with my style, and some I will just sit out.
It’s also important to remember your lifestyle when shopping for jackets; make sure to pick styles that work for your real life. Aside from the occasional date night, my life is pretty casual, so I don’t need a lot of tailored pieces. I try to stick to the more casual, comfortable styles that I can throw on with jeans and sneakers to run errands or meet a friend for coffee.
Top 5 Jacket Trends for Fall 2022
With all that said, let’s talk about the jacket styles that are trending this season! Once again, I’ve included shopping widgets for each category with some styles that caught my eye. I hope that’s helpful.

Blazers are a classic wardrobe piece, and they don’t have to be reserved for the work place. You can also throw one on over a t-shirt and jeans for the weekend. We’re seeing everything from bold hues to classic patterns like checks and houndstooth, and the silhouettes tend to be longer and more relaxed than they have been over the past few years. Also, leather blazers are a big trend this season.
I’ve never been a big fan of blazers, as they always feel too masculine or too corporate, depending on the silhouette. But it’s a good way to add variety to a casual wardrobe like mine, so I’m going to try to find one I like this season.

A bomber jacket tends fit loosely through the arms and shoulders, and it has a cropped fit with a ribbed collar, waistband, and cuffs. They were originally made of leather, but now we’re seeing them in all different fabrics.
This is one of my favorite fall 2022 jacket trends. The cropped length works well for me, and a bomber jacket adds an element of toughness to an outfit, which I always enjoy. I like to juxtapose that with something more luxe and sophisticated, such as a cashmere sweater.

Fuzzy fabrics are in style across all wardrobe categories this fall, even shoes and handbags. Faux fur and shearling jackets are going to be huge again this year… updated every so slightly, of course, to keep us all shopping!
And you guessed it… This year, they tend to be longer and oversized. We’re also seeing a lot of shearling and sherpa accents on jackets, especially collars. Some of these jackets are meant to be worn as outerwear, rather than an outfit component, but I included them because it will be cold soon enough!

Leather (and faux leather, for those who prefer) is a huge trend across all wardrobe categories, and jackets are no different. We’re seeing leather blazers, leather bombers, leather moto jackets, and even leather shackets.
I love a leather jacket; it’s long been my go-to outfit topper in the colder months. I typically go for the moto style, but I also like the bomber style, and I might be willing to try a leather blazer… maybe that’s my answer to finding a blazer I like!

I’m seeing all styles of jackets in knit fabrics this fall. These make a nice alternative to cardigans because they have the warmth and comfort of a sweater with the style of a jacket.
Which of these jacket styles is your favorite?
