Jacket weather has kicked into gear here in Sydney and I’ve been making great use of my outerwear specially made for these transitional seasons.  Wherever you are in the world, and whether you’ve just started Spring or Autumn, you may be finding the weather teetering between warm and cool which can make it a little confusing getting dressed for the day.  Autumn is by far my favourite season as the weather is still mild and I like that I can still enjoy wearing most of the pieces in my wardrobe.  

And while I love getting rugged up in all my layers during the dead of winter, there is a sense of freedom that comes with ‘lightweight jacket’ weather and not having to drape yourself in a million layers before stepping foot out the door.  

With the recent cool change (including some rainy days), I’ve been road-testing some Everlane jackets for the transitional seasons and I thought I’d round up my picks to help you navigate these next couple of months with ease. 

The Drape Trench

Let’s kick things off with a classic outerwear staple: a trench coat.  Practical and stylish, these are always worth the investment.  I’m sporting Everlane’s new Drape Trench Coat is cut to an oversized silhouette and has a real “borrowed from the boys” vibe.  It’s longer and looser than the trench coats in my wardrobe with an exaggerated collar, but I love the relaxed vibe.  And while I have my fair share of trench coats cut to a more tailored fit in my wardrobe, I’ve still enjoyed wearing this over my workwear ensembles to the office as well as my casual gear when running errands.  

The mid-weight fabric is soft to the touch and perfect for keeping you warm on those windy transitional days. For reference I’m in a size XS and I’ve cuffed up the sleeves.  I’m wearing the Green Balsam version and it also comes in Sandstone and Black.

The Anorak

Water-resistant, lightweight and uber practical – this is an essential piece of outerwear that you always want on hand when the weather isn’t so great.  This light-weight Anorak features a spacious hood, double-zip front, snap closures and a high-low hem with a hidden drawcord so you can cinch the jacket in if you want to create a more fitted silhouette.  And the best part? Save for the zippers and trim, this jacket is derived from 100% recycled materials derived from 14 recycled plastic bottles. 

The anorak cut to an oversized silhouette making this a great piece to layer over your outfit and protect it from wet weather and wind whilst at the same time being light and packable in your bag. For reference, I’m in a size XXS in the Bay Leaf colour. It also comes in Black, Taupe and Seaglass.

The Mac Coat

A modern take on the classic macintosh coat.  This beauty is made of 100% cotton but has been treated with a water-resistant coating to make it an all-weather option.  Staying true to the single-breasted origins of its design, this mac coat is complete with timeless details including a classic point collar, clean button front and comes partially lined.  While original mackintosh coats were made of rubberised fabric, this cotton version is a much softer and lightweight finish. That said, its water-resistant coating makes this a quintessential transitional outerwear piece and one of the hero staples from Everlane’s range of jackets.

For reference I’m wearing the size 0 in Cocoa Brown. It also comes in a classic khaki hue.
