I don't know about you, but I live for the blissful stage between summer and the harsh cold of winter that we currently find ourselves in. The days when knitwear and a chic jacket will suffice to keep the chill at bay. And right now, my mind is firmly fixed upon the latter. I can't explain why, but I just have this thing for jackets. I firmly believe they have the power to make any outfit look cooler—that, or they can totally let the side down if you don't have the right options at your disposal.

Right on cue, there are plenty of jackets to shop at the moment which, for layering obsessives like me, is such a treat. However, I'm aware that spending hours scrolling through every jacket section online isn't other people's idea of time well spent.
As such, I decided to put my shopping prowess to good use and bring you an edit of the very best high-street jackets. I trawled through the new-in sections of each and every high-street store to bring you the top three styles from each—all of which you'll find below.
Common themes include luxe leather, coloured suede and cosy faux shearling. Throw in some heritage checks and berry tones and I guarantee you're sure to find a jacket to suit you, whatever your sartorial preferences.
Keep scrolling to see and shop the best high-street jackets currently on offer, neatly categorised by brand. I challenge you not to buy one (or three).
