The best thing about fall is that you can wear a jacket (and only the jacket, without a coat over it!). I have collected quite a few and this Isabel Marant cargo jacket from ten years back has proven itself to be timeless. The sleeves zip out to make it into a vest, too. Leave it to the French! Her pieces are very collectible. The muted rose color is not so great right against my skin, so when I wear it I break it up with color, and in this case, a black scarf and top.
