* Fall is here, which means it’s time to invest in a new jacket
* These five options are lightweight and affordable
* From classic styles to modern staples
As the weather starts to cool and days get shorter, it’s time to break out those jackets and coats. But you don’t have to go out and spend a ton of money on a whole new wardrobe. Start by picking up one of these stylish yet affordable jackets, that are light enough to layer but warm enough to keep you cozy through fall.
1. Dickies Men’s Snap-Front Nylon Jacket
Made of lightweight nylon, this jacket is great for when nights begin to get cooler, but winter has yet to arrive. It’s machine washable, and buttons in front so it’s easy to throw over any outfit. Wind-proof and water-resistant, we like this style because it falls somewhere in between a classic windbreaker and the always trendy coach’s jacket.
2. Wantdo Men’s Cotton Stand Collar Windbreaker Jacket
This casual, straightforward jacket has a plaid interior for a classic fall look. The army green color goes with everything, and the turn-up collar keeps your neck warm. Great if you carry a lot of stuff with you, the jacket features one inner pocket, one breast pocket and two slant pockets.
3. Wrangler Men’s Classic Denim Jacket
The classics never go out of style. Diverse, warm and timeless, every man needs a denim jacket in his wardrobe, and this one from Wrangler delivers those All-American looks at a solid price. The more you beat it up, the better it’ll look.
4. H&M Jacket With Stand Up Collar
Made of durable woven nylon, this simple navy blue number has a ribbed stand-up collar for maximum protection (and style). The jersey lining also means it’s so comfortable you won’t want to take it off. This is a great piece that you can wear to the game, or to dinner, without looking like you tried too hard.
5. Jacket with Raglan Sleeves
This anorak-style jacket is slightly warmer than some of the other models, as it’s got a warm, padded interior, as well as raglan sleeves and a drawstring hood. Wear this when you’re out with friends, or pack it for your fall camping trip. It’s well-made and well-priced to take you through the fall season and beyond.
