Think what you will about adults wearing Urban Outfitters post-college. But I feel morally obligated to let everyone know that the ubiquitous #cool retailer has some serious gems in its outerwear section right now. And as with some of the brand’s other universally praised finds (see: BDG denim forever), you’re getting some pretty great quality at wallet-friendly prices.
There’s a huge mix of stuff from in-house lines Silence + Noise, Kimchi Blue, and BDG, plus names like UNIF, Levi's, Alpha Industries, and BlankNYC that will take you through each part of the season and into the winter months. Lighter options — from jean jackets to oversized blazers — are all accounted for, along with plenty of faux fur, leather, and classic puffer jackets for when the temperatures really start to drop.
The best part, though, is the price point. About half of the selection rings in under $100, with most of the remaining options still under $200. (Sounds good, right?) Check out our favorite picks below, and shop the full collection here, whether you need something for now or later.
