The scene is set… It’s a crisp Fall day, your windows are open, and a delightful breeze is wafting through your home as you consider what you’ll wear today. It’s chilly but not exactly cold, beckoning an additional layer to keep you cozy while also providing that “one-and-done” style you appreciate. The good news? We have a wide variety of jackets, vests and light coats to choose from—in proportions from cute and cropped to long and flowing—all ready to wrap you in luxurious style!

Across the spectrum of autumn’s key silhouettes, you’ll find rich bouclés—the season’s top texture trend—cloud-like quilting, must-have menswear patterns with feminine edge, and every possible color-way from necessary neutrals to bold brights. There is truly something for everyone—in a range of sizes to fit both Missy and Plus, beautifully.

The Alembika Team has favorites and we decided to share them here. Sometimes it is chilly in the showroom and it’s interesting to see which jackets everyone chooses from the sample racks to cozy up in…

Yael’s Pick: Must-Have Bouclé Long Open Jacket
Carla’s Pick: Cozy Crop Bouclé Jacket
Claire’s Pick: Urban Lava Cloud Jacket

YAEL’S PICK: MUST-HAVE BOUCLE LONG JACKET, an absolutely fabulous, open-front style with big patch pockets, in a patchwork of rich, colorful hues with neutral stripes for fun contrast. It’s a statement piece for sure, and one your wardrobe will appreciate for its cozy nature as well as its versatility—toss it over jeans and a tee or rock it at a formal event! Yael is our wonderful, fearless leader @alembika.com_USA + your gracious Zoom Café host.

CARLA’S PICK: COZY CROP BOUCLE JACKET, a cute cropped silhouette that layers like a pro to show off chic tunic-length tops and so much more. In this gorgeous shade, your friends will be green with envy, but it comes in a slew of other amazing colors, too. Carla is our sassy social media guru and super-creative styling goddess. Make sure to follow her trending Alembika posts on Instagram.

CLAIRE’S PICK: URBAN LAVA CLOUD JACKET, an ultra-soft knit with diamond quilting for a deliciously comfy style that’s light and breathable. Be sure to check out the URBAN LAVA CLOUD VEST, too. Both are layer-loving pieces you’ll wear well into the season and beyond. Claire is our multi-talented merchandising assistant, who helps virtually everyone on the team with a smile. Her edgy personal style is totally rockin’.

Alin’s Pick: Ozai N Ku 2-Way Bouclé Crop Jacket
Fatima’s Pick: Ozai N Ku Happiness Coat
Jocelyn’s Pick: Chalk Stripe Shirt Jacket

ALIN’S PICK: OZAI N KU 2-WAY BOUCLE JACKET, another texture-rich bouclé beauty in a vibrant golden hue that looks great with Alin’s beautiful red hair. This perky, pure cotton piece in a slightly cropped silhouette drapes to perfection and is perfect for ensuring a sunny Autumn glow wherever you go. Alin is our head of marketing, chief scheduler, passionate “ideas person” and bourbon aficionado—with seemingly endless energy.

FATIMA’S PICK: OZAI N KU HAPPINESS COAT. It’s a head-turner, for sure, in deep red with a bold black graphic, and great on Fatima with her supermodel stature. That said, I love this happy piece, too, and had to try it on. It works just as well on my 5’3″ frame—the hem just hits at mid-calf instead of the knee. Fatima is Alembika’s national sales director, savvy merchandiser, multitasker extraordinaire and much needed in-house stand-up comic (doesn’t every office need one?!).

JOCELYN’S PICK (that’s me): CHALK STRIPE SHIRT JACKET. I like to “borrow from the boys” and never met a pinstripe I didn’t like. This versatile topper serves as a lightweight jacket or cozy shirt and, like all Alembika, is destined for luxe layering. I also appreciate its universal appeal—my 20-something nieces love it, too. I write and edit copy and content + curate the images you see throughout the collections. After working from home for over a decade, I love meeting my small but mighty team in the Alembika showroom, where we not only work hard, but have fun trying on samples—and sharing life, love, vino and impressive charcuterie boards.
