If there’s one thing every girl needs to survive fall in style (and every guy for that matter), it’s a Barbour jacket. Lightweight enough for a cool breeze but easy to add layers underneath on cold winter days, it’s an outerwear investment that you’ll wear dozens of times each season. Because the silhouette is less slimming than a dress coat or trench, I like to pair mine with skinny jeans (these equestrian leggings would be perfect too) and tall boots. P.S. I’m on the lookout for a new pair of leather riding boots if anyone has any recs!

A few notes on sizing… For the jacket, I wear the US size 2 / UK size 6. And if you order this sweater one size up from your usual size (e.g. a small instead of the extra small), it will no joke be the comfiest item of clothing you own. And in case you were on the fence about a Barbour jacket, here’s another genius part of adding one to your outerwear collection: if you live somewhere with extra chilly winters, you can also order a zip-in liner for added warmth!

  1. Thank you so much for saying that the Barbour jackets are not slim fitting. I love my Barbour for function and color but honestly, I have noticed that they are a little boxy!! Great outfit and I love those boots!

  2. I have been wanting to invest in a Barbour jacket for awhile now! The quality and workmanship just seem incredible and I know it will be a piece I have for a very long time. Just not in the cards (read: my budget) right now. Sigh.
    Also note on riding boots, I just purchased the Sam Edelman Penny boots from Nordstrom and I LOVE them. Very classic and super comfortable. I got them in black but I think I need them in brown too!
