This $60 old navy jacket makes dressing for rainy weather chic

Now that it’s fall, I’ve been obsessed with putting together the perfect collection of cold weather basics: high quality denim, cozy flannelsand my latest find: a lightweight nylon jacket, especially that one Old Navy water-resistant zip-up hooded jacket ($60). I personally have one tons coats suitable for really cold temperatures, but significantly less easy to wear when the weather is temperamental. (My cotton Lululemon Define jacket definitely won’t take a fall rain.) Ahead, I’ll break down everything you need to know about autumn wardrobe silhouette.

What I like about this old navy jacket

I ordered the navy blue option dubbed “In the Navy” in size medium and was really happy with its quality and ultra-functional details. It has it all: a built-in snorkel hood with a stand-up collar, adjustable drawstring, zipped pockets and mesh hood lining. There is a storm flap in the waist at the front and back, which keeps the water out of the jacket and at the same time gives it some character. I styled it over a white ribbed tank and high-waisted jeans, which evoked the vibe I wanted: low-key but smart. It’s exactly what I was looking for because it reminded me of a retro gem I’d find (and steal) from my dad’s closet – and for that reason I’m obsessed.

What is worth noting

Over 100 shoppers have rated this jacket and the overwhelming majority gave it five star reviews. There’s a consistent complaint among those who gave it less than four stars: it runs big—and I agree, though I prefer the oversized fit. If you want the jacket to fit more in terms of size, you can reduce it by at least one full size.

Who is this old navy jacket best for?

This jacket is best for those looking for a lightweight jacket that is ideal for the transition from summer to fall. Those who prefer a relaxed, oversized fit will appreciate this style as well as those looking for protection from seasonal elements like rain or wind.
