Keeping a few lightweight jackets in your wardrobe has endless appeal. For starters, the outerwear option is the ideal throw-on-and-go item for those brisk mornings when the fall chill breaks through. But lightweight jackets are also great for layering, as they work well with long-sleeve shirts and can even function later in the season as a base. And of course, you can toss one in a bag and bring it with you just about anywhere.

Whether you're in the market for an oversized varsity bomber, a refreshed take on a denim classic, or a wallet-friendly faux-shearling number, you'll find it for less than $50 in Amazon's fall jackets section. Below, we rounded up 10 customer-loved jackets on Amazon, starting at $15.

It's hard to resist the appeal of reaching for an ultra-cozy faux-shearling zip-up once temperatures start to dip, and this one from Amazon Essentials delivers.

Not to mention, it's on sale for just $15.

It's no secret that InStyle editors love windbreakers. This one from SweatyRocks is an attention-grabber, with a boxy fit, full-length zipper, and '80s-inspired color-blocking. It's a piece that's going to get double taps. One shopper called it a "great-looking, quality jacket," adding that they get "compliments everywhere from friends [and] strangers."

A preppy varsity jacket is a definite statement piece, as its rugged, oversized shoulders and brooding athleticism earn major street style points. It comes in five patterns and sizes run XS through XXXL, though this $45 find is actually a unisex jacket with a larger fit, so definitely size down when ordering. Try wearing it over an oh-so-pretty feminine dress to merge the two styles.

If you're searching for a lightweight military-inspired jacket that you can roll up and stash in a tote bag or carry-on luggage, this Daily Ritual style is it. It has a bit of stretch to it (it's made with two percent elastane), so it'll fit comfortably, and it has a chest pocket, which is great for sunglasses and small wallets. The jacket comes in seven earthy shades, features a waist-flattering drawstring, and is available in sizes 2 through 16. One shopper spent time searching for their perfect cargo jacket before landing on this one, since it's "super soft, long enough in the arms, and the waist-cinching cord hits exactly at [their] waistline."

If you haven't been able to take your mind off the slouchy-shouldered quilted jacket trend since Katie Holmes wore it last year, you're not alone.

According to one shopper, it's "perfect for spring and fall and has enough room for a sweatshirt underneath." Size up if you want to go for an oversize fit.
