The Best Quilted Jackets, Field Coats, and Barn Jackets for Cooler Temps

I know some of you are going to be mad about this post. You are waiting for more summer fashion posts, I get it, but it’s been so chilly and grey in NYC and according to my West Coast friends, Los Angeles. My double faced wool coats and even my Toteme Trench are too heavy for 60-65 degrees so I’ve been trying to find some lighter jacket options. I’m also headed to Nantucket soon where it will be even colder so I need something for that trip too.

I saw a photo of Dakota Johnson, who’s in town filming a new movie, wearing a quilted jacket and white jeans. The perfect chilly spring day outfit. Funny enough, Gwyneth Paltrow who used to be married to Chris Martin who Dakota is now dating, wore a similar quilted jacket in the film Possession. I figured out Dakota’s quilted jacket was vintage Hermès from the Margiela years in the 90s and was lucky to find one in my size on a men’s resale site in the UK. It arrived today and it fits perfectly so I think it was mistakenly assumed to be a men’s jacket when it was really for women. I posted a few others I found on Vestiaire in my Instagram stories but I think they’ve sold out so I found some new options. If you are also in need of a jacket for cold mornings or a trip to the beach for Memorial Day weekend where it hasn’t warmed up yet, these are the best choices.

This L.L.Bean Quilted Riding Jacket is a similar style to my new Hermès jacket but it’s lined so it will be for colder mornings and days. It comes in six colors.

Toteme really leaned into all the different jacket types this spring and this Quilted Single-breasted Cotton Jacket is a chic update on the classic quilted coat.

Also from Toteme is this chic Oversized Quilted Jacket. They are all great to style with white jeans to lighten them up for spring.

Another classic style is this Diamond Quilted Jacket.

This Toteme Leather-trimmed Cotton Jacket is a very chic version of the classic barn jacket.

You can also go classic with this Barbour Corduroy-trimmed Coated-cotton Jacket

If you want a more fashion forward option, try this Cropped Barn Jacket.

The all-time classic is the original J.Crew Barn Jacket from 1983 that has been reissued. It’s for men but you can steal the style by sizing down.

You know this look is how when The Row has designed their own Corduroy Collar Jacket.

This Quilted Corduroy Collar Coat is a slight update on the classic barn jacket.

This Barn Jacket also comes in black but I think the neutral colors work best for these jackets.

For you fancy types, there is the Prada Technical Canvas Blouson Jacket

Also this Prada Light Re-Nylon Jacket.

This green Barn Jacket is currently on sale.

This arm green Flex Utility Jacket is a great deal right now.

I bought this army green Cotton Linen Jacket which has a drawstring so you can cinch your waist and create more definition.

This G Label Field Jacket is marked down very far right now.

I was about to say that I think waxed cotton jackets are better for the country than the city when I read that this one is named the Country Jacket.

This Mackintosh Waxed Cotton Field Coat will fit over your most oversized sweaters for the country.

You can also go navy with this Quilted Jacket for a weekend away.

Bon week-end !

XOXO,
