The change of seasons is a time for reevaluation. Last year's jacket a little too snug? Your outerwear fallen out of style? Just not feeling anything you've got hanging in your closet? That's okay — now is the perfect time to invest in (and save on) a new one. Just make sure to take action before winter's chill kicks in!

We've got just the place to look. Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack are a treasure trove of jackets, "shackets" and more, all perfect for the season. You don't have to spend a fortune, either: Many of these are either marked down or already priced just right.

Here are our favorites you need in your closet STAT.

This fuzzy sherpa-style jacket comes in three colors — red, cream and black — and boasts a cozy oversized fit. Drop shoulders and a mid-thigh hem are super flattering, too, plus the contrasting gold hardware adds a stylish touch. Oh, and it's machine washable!

If you're a fan of blazers but are looking for something a little less structured, this style is perfect. It has a draped collar and an asymmetric hem, and it's made with a soft knit, as opposed to the rigid feel of a traditional blazer. Pair with a T-shirt or a thin sweater underneath. It's also available in a navy stripe colorway, as well as camo and terracotta shades.

"I absolutely LOVE this blazer," a shopper noted. "It is stunning on! It is a simple cotton fabric, but looks expensive and wears really well. I've already received a lot of compliments and I've only worn it once. It drapes nicely and I only wished I'd purchased other colors."

Move aside, leather moto jackets! This season is all about softer textures and silhouettes — just like this plush faux suede. The gentle drape silhouette pairs well with tees, tanks and dresses, plus the contrasting silver hardware gives the otherwise demure piece just a touch of edge.

"OMG! I love this jacket so much," shared a shopper. "I had to buy two. Put this jacket over any outfit and you look like you are dressed up."

It comes in a versatile ivory and tan colorway, and has oversized front pockets and coordinating buttons. Pair with denim or layer it on over a sweater — it's perfect for trips to the farmer's market, apple picking and beyond.

It has two oversized pockets and a drawstring hood, plus the channel quilting throughout makes it feel even more plush than it looks. Available in black, gray and olive.

Chilly days call for cozy puffers — and this one more than fits the bill. It comes in black, white, navy, green and blush, all with classic black trim and hardware. It cinches in at the smallest part of your waist and flares out at your hips, so it creates a flattering silhouette. It's lightweight but warm, so it can carry you well through winter, too.
