“Is it worth it / Let me work it / I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it.”
Missy Elliott was totally talking about reversible jackets, right?
A coat with two wearable sides can be a novelty, but at its best the reversible layer offers two distinct experiences and styles (often with completely different colors or patterns).
We can’t really predict what weather we’ll get any day this fall, but with the following two-in-one jackets, we stand twice the chance of making a better wardrobe choice.
Faherty Bondi Reversible Jacket
Shirt jackets are already a two-in-one, so is this a “four in one”? This multi-layer is a flannel on one side and a technical wind shell on the other.
Todd Snyder Reversible Donegal Wool Quilted Vest
When it’s nice, rock the “tweedy side” (a wool Donegal fabric with two patch pockets). When it rains, switch over to the water-repellent nylon. You’ll stay warm either way thanks to the Primaloft filling.
Gap Reversible Fleece Jacket
The modest contrasting here matches the modest pricing (under $100)— it’s an everyday wear times two.
Parajumpers Super Lightweight Reversible Jacket
Available in three (well, six) colors, we’re partial to the “carrot / nine iron” combo — it’s quite a striking style for this light down vented jacket, which has a drawstring hood and two zippered front pockets (and a chest pocket with vertical zip) on both sides.
IgniteLite Stretch Reversible Jacket
Dad wants his technical layer. Insulated, warm, breathable, moisture-shedding and purposely stretchy, this Eddie Bauer jacket was meant for fall hikes and outdoor adventures.
Knickerbocker Reversible Zip Pile Jacket
Keep the cozy, high-pile cotton fleece close to your body for extra warmth while the weather-resistant cotton-nylon takes on the elements, or flip the jacket inside out on more milder days to offer a little bit more style.
Brooks Brothers Reversible Bomber Jacket
Brooks Brothers’ Reversible Bomber Jacket offers two colors: classic navy or a less understated, but equally classic, merlot shade.
Uniqlo Reversible Parka
Opt for a sporty or casual look with Uniqlo’s Reversible Parka, which features a nylon outer and ultra-soft jersey lining that can easily be made into the jacket’s exterior.
Rag & Bone Austin Reversible Liner
This Rag & Bone liner jacket can quickly go from basic, unassuming navy bomber to – BAM! – an onion quilted jacket in a hard-to-miss hunting orange. Switch it up depending on the amount of attention you want to attract on any given day.
