This season, some of our favorite outerwear styles seem to have something in common—they don’t have sleeves! Yes, you can find sleeveless jacket silhouettes in a handful of timeless fall styles, from trench coats to puffers, padded, and tailored wool jackets.
Perfect for that in-between fall weather, you can layer these gilets over turtlenecks and knits for a cozy yet chic autumn outfit. Like shackets, you don’t have to remove your sleeveless coat when you go from outside to in; it’s like an elongated vest and can be a stylish but permanent part of your ensemble.
Need a few ideas on how to style it? Consider wearing a sleeveless trench as a dress with a white long-sleeved top and pair of loafers. Or layer up in a down vest jacket with a hoodie, leggings, and lug sole boots. Shorter silhouettes are just the right proportion with midi skirts and knee-high boots, while a longer shearling or wool double-breasted option goes well with jeans and ankle booties.
The sleeveless jacket makes just the right kind of statement and will surely come in handy for all of the season’s occasions. It’s casual, practical, yet elegant enough to wear to both the office and all of fall’s festivities. Find the best sleeveless jackets and coats for women, below.
