Fall is arguably the best time of year: leaves changing, football season, and pumpkin spice everything. The cool mornings and warm afternoons are lovely, but can really complicate choosing what to dress your child (and yourself) in for the day, as you have to be ready for just about any kind of weather and any extreme. It often seems like you need different clothes even for school drop-offs and pickups. That's why layering is a great approach this time of year. Here are a few well-rated coats that are the perfect fall outer layer – versatile, affordable, cozy, and attractive.
ACESTAR Waterproof Rain Jacket
A classic raincoat is the perfect fall jacket: warm and water- and windproof, with the extra length and hood coverage, a good one will keep your kiddo cozy and dry in fall's often wet and blowy weather. This ACESTAR jacket works for the transition from winter to spring as well, so you might get a few seasons of wear out of it. The yellow color is classic, but it's also available in white or hunter green.
Columbia Glennaker Rain Jacket
Columbia is a tried-and-true brand, and this classic style is versatile for fall's cool mornings. The waterproof nylon shell is durable enough to withstand anything from a drizzle to a downpour, too. The coat features zippered pockets, elastic cuffs, a hood, and reflective detailing to help keep kids safe when it starts to get dark outside earlier. This jacket comes in 17 different colors, but I prefer black because black hides all the dirt.
Mallimoda Hooded Fleece Coat
What stylish kid wouldn't love this classic navy (or red, if they prefer) jacket with brown leather elbow patches? Perfect for late fall and early winter days, the fleecy cotton lining in the body and hood will be sure to keep them cozy. This coat runs large, so be sure to check the sizing chart; the manufacturer and customer reviews recommend ordering 1 or 2 sizes down.
Hiheart Rainbow Hooded Windproof Jacket
My two girls are currently obsessed with all things rainbow, so this jacket is perfect, especially for our cool San Diego mornings. The kicky stripes top off great design, including waterproof outer layer, polar fleece lining, hood with chin guard, and zipper closures. I love the attention to detail on this coat, like Velcro on the sleeve openings to tighten when needed and an extra inch of fabric that extends the hood to keep rain off their faces. The bright colors and reflective strips help keep them safe in the darker mornings and evenings, too.
BINPAW Hooded Trench Coat
This adorable button-up trench coat is available in two thicknesses: one for spring and early autumn and one with a quilted liner for late fall and early winter. It comes in an array of fun colors and patterns, is machine-washable, and has a classic plaid liner and detachable hood. The tailored waistline and gathered peplum give this coat a darling silhouette and vintage appeal.
