Cooler weather presents a challenge for many of us. Gone are the days when we can comfortably leave the house sleeveless, but it’s not quite cold enough to break out our winter gear yet. Sure, there are sport coats and suit jackets but, especially given today’s anything-goes office dress codes, what’s a more relaxed alternative?

Whatever you want to call them, just know that they’re exactly what your wardrobe needs this fall. Wear them buttoned or unbuttoned to tie together a smart casual outfit, or layer them on as outerwear for the shoulder seasons. Below, we’ve rounded up 15 of the best shirt jackets to add to your wardrobe.
