We get it —  you want to squeeze every last drop of summer you can, but it’s never too soon to think of the all the adorable jackets you need when the temps start to drop. Check out our Top 5 that actually get you excited, not bummed, for fall.

The Classic:

Of course, you can never go wrong with a signature trench, and Banana Republic’s Classic Trench ($198) is the best there is. A customer favorite, this double-breasted coat has a removable belt and is fully lined so you can wear it into the winter.

The Slicker:

The Hooded Cotton Slicker ($128) from J. Crew is a perfect, poncho-style topper for a cool day that doesn’t quite warrant a full-blown jacket. Belt it or roll the sleeves for a more styled look.

The Unexpected:

Get it while it lasts is all we have to say about the Ali Ro Completer Anorak ($114.90, from $275). While everyone else has switched to drab earthtones, we’ll spot you a mile away in this bright tunic-style anorak.

The Trendsetter:

For a cropped style that’s up-to-the-nanosecond trendy, try the Old Navy Lightweight Moto jacket ($30.99, from $34.50), a total natural with skinny jeans and your favorite boots, but just at natural with a weekend, sneaker look.

The Wildcard:

Every girl needs one “wow” piece in her wardrobe, and we love the idea of making that piece a chic, colorful jacket. J. Crew’s  Watercolor Potpourri Swing Coat ($450) is a perfect choice and is sure to brighten your closet, your commute, your workday and anything else it touches.
