I have to admit something: I have a slight obsession with coats and jackets. My collection grows every year, which really causes a problem considering my studio apartment does not have a coat closet. But when I see a cute new style, I simply need to have it. A lot of jacket and coat silhouettes are truly timeless, so I see no harm in adding to the collection.

Each classic style is so different and gives off a unique vibe. For example, the classic trench? Makes all your “I’m-weekending-in-Paris” dreams come true—suddenly you want to eat a croissant and wear a beret. The insanely on-trend shacket? Now you’re both chic and cozy, especially paired with your favorite faux leather leggings (see below).

However, given that many of us have to wear coats for more than half the year, it’s all too easy to get tired of wearing the same ones and to run out of ideas on how exactly to style them. But (you already know) we’ve got you covered.

Here are our favorite mom-approved jackets and coats for fall, plus five ways to style them:
