Top 5 Men’s Lightweight Jackets For Fall 2022

Last updated: February 13, 2022

As the weather starts to get a little bit cooler and the temperature drops, there’s probably no more important piece in your wardrobe during the fall than a jacket.

Fall is all about layering and there’s no better way to show off your style and inject some new life and warmth into your wardrobe than by picking up some jackets. Versatility is key during this transitional time of year.

So, if you are looking for a lightweight versatile jacket that you can easily style with the rest of your clothes, here’s a list of the best jackets for this season.

From casual, laid-back looks to formal and dressy appearances, you will find the top picks for when you need that added element of style on a chilly fall day.

Trucker Jacket

Commonly known as the denim jacket because it’s usually made out of denim it but the actual style of this jacket with the button closures and the stitching across the chest is a trucker jacket.

It’s cropped at the waist and has buttons on the sleeves and pockets. If you’re not a fan of denim then, you can go with other materials such as suede, canvas, nylon, and corduroy that are great alternatives.

This jacket goes well with everything: Wear it over a t-shirt or if you want to get a little bit more dressy you can wear it over a button-up with some chino pants and Derby shoes.

Leather Jacket

One of the most versatile pieces of a man’s wardrobe – a classic, leather jacket. Not only it’s functional but also makes you look extremely sexy and cool. This is what you grab when the blazer feels just a little bit too dressy and when you’re trying to be a little edgier for a date night.

Style it with some boots, a pair of black jeans, a plain t-shirt, or a button-up to add a little texture. If you already own a classic black leather jacket, enlarge your collection with one in brown or burgundy color to add some interest to your looks.

Rain Jacket

Oftentimes, fall brings a lot of rain so it’s important to invest in a proper raincoat. Opt for base layering, in other words, style everything underneath your outer layer in a similar shade and add color to the jacket.

In that way, the outfit acts as a nice little canvas for the colorful rain jacket to stand out. Throw on a pair of wool pants and some Chelsea or lace-up boots for a casual rainy day.

Sports Jacket/ Blazer

Suits, in general, are having a major comeback, especially slightly oversized kind of boxier ones. Style a sweater or a button-up shirt underneath a sports jacket and complete with a pair of plaid or bold colored pants.

Prefer a sports jacket of a heavy fabric like wool, tweed, or herringbone to add some class and formality to an otherwise casual outfit.

Chore Jacket

If you’re interested in separating yourself from everybody else this is the jacket you should definitely look into. A chore jacket is a little bit looser and longer than a denim jacket.

Style one with jeans, over a t-shirt, or a button-up for a very simple outdoorsy activity. It’s a versatile jacket that you would throw on when you just needed to go do your chores.

Layer it with a henley and a button-up shirt with some boots kind of leaning into an outdoor-inspired vibe. Alternatively, you could wear it with a shirt and tie or just a shirt and chino pants and dress shoes for a date night.
