While we’re always bummed when summer starts coming to a close, the silver lining is that fall clothes are finally on the horizon. With cozy cardigans, thick socks, flannel button-downs and all the rest, layered autumn looks are objectively amazing.
Of course, lightweight fall jackets are one of the other major highlights. Celebrate the start of a new season (or mourn the end of the last one) by picking up some new jackets for transitional weather. Keep scrolling for truckers, bombers, fleeces and more, all available from Amazon for less than $50.
With the cut of a sophisticated coat and the feel of a cozy knit cardigan, this long jacket is the absolute best of both worlds. The fit is slightly oversized for a stylish, drapey look. You’ll also love the huge pockets, which are big enough to fit everything you’d usually put in your purse — including this heather gray jacket available in 21 shades.
A good denim jacket is a fall-weather necessity, and nobody knows truckers like Levi’s. Their classic Ex-Boyfriend features a roomy fit that has space for a thick sweater underneath but still looks polished and put-together. At more than 50% off the normal price, this deal is far too good to pass up. You’ll still be using the staple piece for years to come.
Moto jackets are everywhere this fall, and we’re all about this faux-suede option. It has cool notched and studded lapels, with an asymmetrical zipper that looks just as good worn open as it does closed. The slim, slightly cropped silhouette will give you a little bit of shape. If you’re really feeling the Western vibes, try the version with long fringe detail in front and back. Both options come in a few shades.
This relaxed jacket has the look and feel of an elevated flannel shirt. Drop shoulders, button cuffs and pleating in back make it easy to dress up or down. The thick wool blend fabric is warm and cozy without the same stiffness as a more traditional coat. Get it in your choice of 12 colors and neutrals.
This statement bomber jacket is a fun twist on the classic piece. Throw it on to instantly dress up a basic jeans and tee outfit. Once the weather gets even cooler, it’ll also work as an indoor layering piece. Tons of different colorful animal, floral and camouflage prints are available besides this one.
Nothing quite screams fall like corduroy. The thick, durable fabric will keep you cozy even as the temperature drops. This versatile jacket has the silhouette of an oversized trucker, with lots of room for extra layers underneath. Subtle frayed hemming at the bottom adds a hint of edge. It also comes in black, brown, khaki, blue and two shades of green.
Wearing this jacket sort of feels like going outside in a thick bathrobe, and honestly, that’s our favorite thing about it. It’s made of trendy teddy-bear fleece, with lapels and extra length to dress up the more common shorter version. And don’t worry — the look is elevated enough that nobody will actually think you left the house wearing a blanket. Choose from 10 colors.
They're among hundreds of military and civilian offenders who've been pressed into Russian penal units known as "Storm-Z" squads and sent to the frontlines in Ukraine this year, according to 13 people with knowledge of the matter, including five fighters in the units. "Storm fighters, they're just meat," said one regular soldier from army unit no. 40318 who was deployed near the fiercely contested city of Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine in May and June. The soldier, who requested anonymity because he feared prosecution in Russia for publicly discussing the war, said he had sympathy for the men's plight: "If the commandants catch anyone with the smell of alcohol on their breath, then they immediately send them to the Storm squads."
