Best Bet: In the Navy


You can already feel the chill in the air, but thankfully, winter-coat season is not upon us quite yet. But Old Navy's brand new Cadet Jacket is a tailored, military-inspired piece to keep us warm in these brisk fall months before the snow kicks in. The wool-blend jacket comes in a deep, royal blue and a bright, vibrant red, complete with a chic spread collar and satin lining. The rounded, brass buttons give this double-breasted piece a sophisticated, slightly antique look that pairs perfectly with jeans and boots. The slim cut flatters figures, but is roomy enough that you to wear a thin sweater layered underneath as temperatures drop.
