Fall Fashion: The Soft Knit Jacket

With fall fashion on my mind, my thoughts turn to jackets and blazers. They’re a great way to dress up a pair of jeans or simple pants and add a bit of warmth before it’s coat season. I love the polished look of a jacket but many traditional, woven ones are stiffer than I like. A soft knit jacket is a better fit for my lifestyle and my body. They drape nicely, move with me and are just plain comfy.

Here are a few I found online.

Soft knit jacket by Nic+Zoe from Nordstrom on A Well Styled Life

This knit blazer is a great alternative to traditional woven versions. This could be worn to the office but for my lifestyle, I would toss it on with a pair of jeans and some fun jewelry. I also love that it’s machine washable. Who wants to bother with the expense of dry cleaning and expose yourself to all those chemicals? Not me.

soft knit jacket City Chic from Nordstrom on A Well Styled Life

This plus size knit blazer has a more feminine shape with its peplum and faux leather piping. I love how the insets define the waist and make this curvy jacket look fitted. It’s also in one of the great jewel tones for fall.

soft knit Animal Print Jacket from Chico's on A Well Styled Life

This Leopard-Print Jacket is anything but traditional. Its ponte knit fabric stretches for comfort and retains its shape with spandex. I’d style it just like this with a denim shirt or jeans. It would also be great over a simple black dress or skirt and top.

CHASER soft knit moto jacket from Bloomingdales on A Well Styled Life

This Knit Moto Jacket gets its edgy comfort from cotton. It would be a great way to ease into fall when the temps aren’t being cooperative and it gives a softer look than the traditional leather jackets.

soft knit Sullivan Jacket from Soft Surroundings on A Well Styled Life

This Sullivan Coat is made from a soft jersey knit and is as comfy as a pair of PJ’s. This would be a great piece to toss over your workout clothes to get you to and from the gym!

Shop Knit Jackets

Knits are all over the shops these days as people gear up for the cooler weather. Do you wear traditional blazers or are you a fan of knits?
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!


  1. It’s 90 degrees in Florida so hard to think about jackets and blazers. These are lovely though.

    1. I hope it cools off for you soon. When we are all freezing and complaining of the rain, you will be having lovely weather.

    I like all these knit jackets. I think knit fabric is soooo much more comfortable than any other, plus it does not wrinkle during long hours of travel. Thank you for bringing these to your readers’ attention.

  3. I just love that knit MOTO jacket!

  4. I find traditional coats & jackets to be too stiff & confining so am always on the lookout for a softer & more comfortable alternative. These are all great choices! My favourite is the Sullivan Coat although I’m with Janet in that I would like it even better in a plum shade for fall.

    1. Plum, Merlot and Burgundy colors are on my radar too this fall. I’ll be sharing what I find

  5. All good choices! I love denim with leopard and wear it paired this way. I would love a warm fall coat in a rich shade like plum or burgundy. Do you ever see that? I’m so tired of drab outerwear.

    1. There are some gorgeous rich colors this fall! I’ll have a peek around for you

      1. Thanks!
