Quilted jackets, no barn required - une femme d'un certain âge

Quilted jackets, no barn required

J.Crew quilted field jacket in bright blue. Details at une femme d'un certain age

Quilted jackets are a micro-trend I’ve been noticing this fall. But not just the perennial classic “the horse blankets are in the back of the Range Rover” style. I’m seeing some fun colors and more refined styles, practical and perfect for a casual-but-put-together look.

And many are on sale…

Above, this quilted field jacket with Primaloft filling is available in sizes XX-Small to XX-Large in 3 colors. And it’s 30% off with code FALLISHERE.

If you live in a cooler climate, these light to mid-weight jackets can be a perfect transitional season piece, and many are fitted enough to wear as a warm mid-layer underneath a rain jacket or overcoat when it’s colder. For those of us who live in milder climates, they’re a perfect winter weight over a sweater.

I had to include at least one Barbour style, a nod to classic. Sure, it would be at home in the barn, but isn’t too rugged for errands in town.

A bit of print adds a more feminine element. I like this paisley print which doesn’t skew too twee. In Misses and Petite sizes, and 30% off.

    The collarless Everlane jacket is nice, and comes in white too.
    It’s getting dark earlier and I like a white jacket for walks.
    It’s important to me that the coat be washable. When I was commuting I picked up grease and dirt from the subway turnstiles. Now that I’m at home I pick up dirt dealing with the dog or it’s blown into me as I”m walking on the beach.

    Love my 15 year old quilted Benetton jacket. As someone who worked in a rural area, I never saw a farmer wearing a quilted jacket. But, the Queen wears a Barbour when out in the countryside.

    I bought one of the Uniqlo jackets in Paris last fall on your recommendation. I wore it almost every day and still love it!

    I have never ordered from a blogger’s site/recommendations Susan, but the Everlane jacket has “me” written all over it [well, not literally, I hope!!]. Really looking forward to wearing it. And thank you for sharing your lovely self, especially in these challenging times.

    I like and do wear the Uniqlo jackets as they are so light, soft and yet warm enough for our temperate winters, but not white (although I was seriously tempted).

    I have the Uniqlo jacket in black and I wore it last winter quite frequently, usually when going out in the evening. I have two other quilted jackets in white which I’m looking forward to wearing this winter since I’ve let my hair go silver. I too live in Southern California so I usually wear a quilted vest most days when I go out. I have 5 or 6 in different colors. When I travel to colder climes I can wear a vest under a lightweight jacket for extra warmth.

    I’ve been hanging on to a quilted Burberry jacket that I haven’t worn for years. It was gifted to me and if I had had a choice, would have chosen camel rather than dark brown. It’s a bit boxy but probably a classic so maybe it comes out again.
    On the topic of expensive clothing items, I like that your price points seem reasonable, Susan. Although I could afford to buy designer, to me it seems almost criminal to spend thousands of dollars on one handbag (for example).
    I told you recently about how my on-line shopping wasn’t very successful but one item that is a keeper is the pair of Chelsea boots from Madewell. They made the cut but I returned 3 other pairs so thanks for sharing that boot.

    I have four lightweight quilted jackets in heavy rotation throughout the year. They layer well, due to not being too fitted or having much in the way of detail and ornamentation. Mine are neutrals, so they all mix and match. This has worked to keep me warm right into winter. One is showing signs of wear. And here I thought I was being frivolous when I bought them for a spring trip with fluctuating weather in the forecast.

    I love the field jacket style but wish they offered hoods. Its so nice to pop up a hood when there is intermittent rain in the forecast! Thank you for the wonderful selection!!!!

    I love love love quilted jackets! A couple of years ago I found a lovely quilted jacket in olive on a clearance rack. It had been marked down to almost nothing. Believe it or not I got it from Target. I get a lot of use out of it. And I often get compliments on it.

    I love both chore jackets and barn jackets for the pockets.

    Very fond of the quilted jacket in deep moss (one of my colours). I don’t wear anything white or pastel (black cat, but also my taste) and letting my hair go salt and pepper means more cool grey for me, not white.

    By the way, hoods on these jackets can be welcome in a shower, but are a bit unwieldy under another hooded layer.

    I have an olive coloured quilted jacket with a faux shearling collar that I absolutely love. It’s perfect for spring and fall here in Canada.

    Wonderful jacket choices! At the risk of sounding aucune idée, what is the definition of “twee”?

    • Susan Blakey

      Thanks, Sharon. “Twee” to me means “juvenile” or overly sweet or “cutesy.”

    Great jacket selections, Susan! I love my Barbour jackets (regular Beadnell and a quilted jacket (a bit more dressy)). I have a question: Why do women (anyone really) love vests? They keep my chest warm but arms are freezing! What am I doing wrong?

      I think it just depends on your climate and your own personal thermostat. I sometimes wear them over a sweater or long-sleeved tee when I need another layer but a jacket is just too warm.

        Thank you, Susan.

    Love quilted jackets. I have several from Lands End and recently bought a Barbour jacket from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
