Let’s Talk Casual
The Best of Fall 2017’s Casual Jackets
Guess what, everyone? There is only two months left of 2017, which means a number of things:
- It’s almost 2018 (duh)! We can put 2017 to rest (finally), and thus you have to conjure up a New Year’s Resolution.
- It’s time to start thinking about Christmas shopping.
- It’s no longer summer, and the weather is getting chilly.
I’m not going to help you with #1 & #2, but fortunately I can offer some assistance for #3. With the seasons of fall and winter upon us, I hate to say it, but you have to put your jorts and Birks away in exchange for some warmer gear. And lucky for you, the House has just unboxed the finest casual jackets to ensure that the wind, rain, and potential snow do not keep you from finishing 2017 on a high note. Below I’ve listed some of my top picks for Casual Jackets that I think y’all are going to obsess over. Read on, you chilly dogs, and find your perfect warmer-upper.
32 – Thirty Two Myder Hooded Jacket- Men’s
Doesn’t get much more casual than this. And I mean that in the very best way. The Thirty Two Myder Hooded Jacket is the coolest essential you’ll need this season to usher you through brisk fall days on campus or windy hours on the trails. The Myder jacket comes equipped with quilted nylon construction which prevents any precipitation from ruining your vibe. As you’re staying warm, you also won’t have to worry about places to place your hands or phone. This jacket has so many pockets. What more can I say? It’s a sick casual look.
Burton Berkley Rain Jacket – Women’s
Nothing can rain on your parade in this super slick Burton Berkley Rain Jacket. The innovative designs used in this zip-up provides complete protection against wind and rain, so it is absolutely perfect for a day on trails, campus, and everyday travels. The color blocking on this jacket is fashion-forward and easily matchable, creating a look that will definitely make the fall air feel fresh. Grab it and have no regrets.
2117 of Sweden Skulltorp Jacket- Men’s
Nothing cooler than being labeled “hybrid” in 2017. The 2117 Sweden Skulltorp Jacket is just that! Including knitted softshell sleeves and quilted padding in the chest and back, the Skulltorp will absolutely keep you warm and cozy in the next coming months. Even more, this jacket has quick-dry technology and waterproof material to assure you that you’ll be staying clean & comfortable no matter what your body or weather does to you. It’s a steal for active kids like us.
Columbia Voodoo Falls 590 Turbodown Mid Jacket – Women’s
Need a jacket for days when the cold has the potential to keep you inside? I’ve got you. The Columbia Voodoo Mid Jacket is ideal for freezing fall days or chilly winter afternoons as it is constructed with 590 TurboDown insulation that provides lightweight warmth and heat retention. You’ll stay dry, fashionable, and comfortable with this sleek Columbia. What more do you need?
Arc’teryx Squamish Hoody Jacket- Men’s
One of the top trends of 2017 has been a minimalist aesthetic. This Arc-teryx Squamish Hoody fits perfectly under that category. With slick designs and water resistant coating, this windshell is everything you’ll need for a simple fall jacket. It works great alone or as a midlayer piece. The Arc-teryx gives you the freedom to move and enjoy the season without feeling bulky. So, go ahead, unleash the minimalist in you this fall.
The North Face Apex Elevation Softshell – Women’s
The minimalist trend continues for the ladies. The North Face’s Face Apex Elevation Softshell is a fashion staple this season- not only for its looks but for its technology as well. This jacket promises to keep you warm, dry, and active for every outdoor excursion that may encompass you in the next coming months. I personally have this jacket and I am thoroughly obsessed with it. Trust me, it’s a great buy.
And, that, my fellow outdoor enthusiasts, is my take on the best casual jackets that the House has this season. That’s not to say that there are not hundreds of more jackets to peruse through on our site; there are plenty. I’m just saying that my selection is a good selection. Embrace the chilliness that is approaching, and focus on the beauty of change.
