8 Perfect Early Fall Jackets

Deciding what to wear this time of year is tough, but deciding which jacket to bring (or not to bring) is pretty much impossible. Do you bring a lighter coat and throw a scarf and hat in your bag, or a heavier coat and pray the cool weather lasts?

Nowhere is this greater felt than in London, where the weather can (literally) change in the amount of time it takes you to walk down the stairs from your flat to the street.

Regardless, one way or another those shoulders need warmin'. And if there's anything I've learned this year after becoming (somewhat) minimalist and rethinking my views on shopping, it's worth it to invest a large portion of your wardrobe budget on a quality coat. 

I did some research, and found 8 perfect early fall jackets that will make an A+ addition to that wardrobe of yours. These coats and jackets are all high quality, good looking, and made by independent manufacturers.
