As we approach the end of a socially-distanced summer that felt both hypnotically long and impossibly short (and, for most people, was almost entirely spent indoors), most of the season’s planned outfits and giddy purchases have either taken a back seat or slipped away altogether. However, fingers crossed, fall might bring both the chillier temperatures and social reemergence required for passionate, planned, capital-d Dressing. We rounded up the best jackets to polish off your triumphant post-quarantine looks, from hand-drawn truckers to iridescent trenches, all available right here on TRILL.
Ineffable Speed Tribe Work Jacket, $200
Although reaching for this zip-up means that summer is long gone, its saturated pastel hues and all-over retro print will keep you—at least mentally—firmly in a sun-soaked episode of Miami Vice.
Cub-Villain Mary Denim Jacket, $345
Cub-Villain’s cut and sew staples are essentially wearable works of art, and this remixed denim jacket is no exception. With a uniquely utilitarian cut and all-over biblical print, this retro-renaissance piece blurs the seasonal binary for a look that’s truly timeless.
Shadow-Banned Faces of Death Puffer, $190
A good puffer is non-negotiable when temperatures start to drop, but a statement puffer turns even the most basic looks into head-turning fits. Fusing Shadow Banned’s influences across various underground subcultures, this jacket is coated with enough movie scenes and pop culture winks to impress even the most dedicated horror fan.
Alien Body Skull Flame Denim Jacket, $219
Few style staples have gone through as many transformations as the denim jacket, and this Alien Body number channels the best influences of yesteryear. The New York-based brand infused this classic silhouette with its trademark paranormal persona, from the smoky acid wash to an embroidered skull beneath the brand’s slogan.
Tony Rainwater LV Angel Hands Jacket, $228
All rise for the king of the statement piece—Tony Rainwater’s psychedelic works are just begging to star in your first post-quarantine fit pics. Complete with all the designer’s signature touches—eye-popping graphics, serious logo play, and a vivid color scheme—this psychedelic trucker is nothing short of essential.
Guilty All Over Printed Tracksuit Jacket, $182
No outerwear rotation is complete without a solid track jacket in the mix, and that’s where LA-based Guilty comes in. True to the brand’s athleisure-but-not-really aesthetic, this lightweight layer boasts a head-turning flame print and workwear-inspired reflective panels.
Futura Past Dystopia Jacket, $135
Although a megawatt statement coat can be irresistible, nothing beats the timeless comfort of a well-made black layer. Futura Past’s blouson jacket is a minimalist’s dream—an insulated twill base and corduroy-trim collar form a perfect canvas for the hand-painted, cherry red Arabic graphic.
Atelier New Regime Utility Trench Coat, $400
A good trench coat is an outfit’s centerpiece, and Atelier New Regime managed to subvert the modest staple while keeping its unmatched versatility. With reverse stitching, subtle iridescent shine, and a single pixelated graphic, the Quebec-based brand transformed a workwear mainstay into an impeccably modern essential.
