Since Colorado weather jumps from one day being 25 degrees and snowing to 60 degrees and sunny the next, a whole slew of jackets are needed for this climate.
Unfortunately, hoodies won’t cut it all year long.
Well, at least this fall’s trends have the jackets at stylish and chic. From long trenches to wool cropped coats to pleather bomber jackets to puffy down coats to snowboard shells — there’s an option for all.
Here are five cute styles to choose from.
1 Go casual
