Summer isn’t technically over for another week, but fall is officially here as far as we’re concerned. This means a lot of things (Halloween decorations are in stores! You’re probably out of vacation days!), but more than anything, it means that it’s time to find the delicate balance between summer and fall dressing for the in-between days of September.

In reality, though, much of the transitional confusion can be settled (for the most part) by your outerwear. Something light, like denim or a quilted jacket, can still hold its own as proper outerwear on those humid, high 70-degree days. More substantial options, like a trench coat or classic leather, will be your best bet when the real autumn chill kicks in.

Here, we’ve pulled together over a dozen jackets that will have you covered this season regardless of what kind of weather is thrown at you.
