     The army green jacket is so trendy right now and is so cute paired with more feminine pieces like dresses and lace. A perfect summer layering piece that you will also wear all Autumn long. 

    Find it at Chicwish for $59.90.

    I love this faux leather jacket. Wear it over a dress or with printed pants for summer, and then just add a scarf as the weather cools!

    Find it at Choies for $69.99.

    Trench coats are a Fall staple. Wear this one on summer nights, unbuttoned and with wedge sandals. Belt it up and wear with boots for a perfect Fall look! (this also comes in a ton of other fun colors!)

    Find it at Target for $39.99.

    The two toned jackets are big this year, and this one from Forever 21 is so fun with the faux leather sleeves and the olive jacket. 

    Find it at Forever 21 for $42.80.

  • Pink Leather 7 of 10

    This brightly colored faux leather jacket is so fun for summer. But pair it with darker, richer tones (like burgandy and navy) and it is instantly Fall appropriate. 

    Find it at Windsor for $24.00.

  • Canvas 8 of 10

    Canvas jackets are a classic. Unbutton it and bunch or roll up the sleeves for summer. Then button it up and wear the collar high during the fall. 

    Find it at H&M for $49.95.

  • Blazer 9 of 10

    If you're not much of a jacket person, try a blazer. They're fabulous for summer with breezy dresses or jean cut-offs, and gorgeous during the winter with boots and a scarf. This printed one from Gap is stunning.

    Find it at Gap for $98.00.

  • Denim Vest 10 of 10

    Again, if you're not into a full jacket, try a denim vest. They're so popular right now and are lovely over a dress or flowy blouse. Layer a cardigan underneath during the cooler months. 

    Find it at JCPenney for $35.00.
