A: SPORT SOME COLOUR

“This is a really refreshing and unusual shade for a fall bomber jacket. And what a great jacket for travel; it would pack really well.” Frank And Oak, 735 Queen St. W., $49.97

B: LEATHER WEATHER

“What a timeless look that’s also a bit tougher. Leather is huge this year, and with this faux shearling collar, it has a retro vibe too.” Nordstrom, 260 Yonge St., $299

C: CROPPED AND LOADED

“This is a very casual style, a very sporty style and very, very classy. It’s so nice and cropped, and the sleeves look a little fuller.” Freda’s, 45 Elm St. $139
