Fall weather can be unpredictable; one minute there’s a crisp breeze in the air, the next it’s snowing. So fall jackets for kids need to be warm (but not so warm that your child is sweating on the school bus!). They also can’t be super bulky or wrinkle easily since it’s likely your kids will be shoving their fall jacket into a backpack or carry-on bag soon into your travels. These are our favorite fall jackets for kids and teens that are lightweight, yet warm, stylish and durable.
