With the amount of outerwear choices on the rails, we’re here to simplify things. We’re doing away with talking different fits, purposes, attachments, and the like, for a selection based on color. The right black jacket overrides all other categories, in our opinion. Not only does this sophisticated essential go with pretty much any outfit, it actually emphasizes the pieces around it through sheer simplicity.

From bomber jackets to insulated puffer jackets, we’re exploring and celebrating all sides of the black jacket of which there are many. While not all of these will alone be the perfect jacket for fall and winter, all of them will upgrade your outerwear thanks to their versatility. Scroll through our favorite black jackets below.

Real Down Jacket


Stone Island

Buy at Highsnobiety

Stone Island’s most popular pieces are usually colorful and in-your-face, due to the Italian brand’s knack for experimenting with dyeing methods. But Stoney also has a lot of nice, subtle pieces, such as this charcoal gray down jacket.

Lourdes Backless Jacket

Backless Jacket


Lourdes NYC

Buy at Highsnobiety

Maybe don’t wear Lourdes’ backless jacket in the dead of winter, unless you’ve got something warm on underneath. If you only need a light covering and want to play with colors and textures, this is definitely the best jacket to do it with.

Jacquemus La Doudoune Flocon

La Doudoune Flocon



Buy at Highsnobiety

In classic Jacquemus style, this jacket is all-black and sans big logos, making it the perfect subtle flex. We’re big fans of the cropped cut in particular, as it allows you to play with silhouettes and different layering options.

Doubleface Coat


Acne Studios

Where ACRONYM is extra functional and packed with hidden details, zippers, and pockets, Acne Studios likes to keep things characteristically simple. That doesn’t mean the brand’s black jackets aren’t worth the price tag, though. Looking this good carries a price, too.

The North Face Retro Mountain Light Jacket
