Its popularity skyrocketed when the Queen of England wore it hunting with a trimmed brown corduroy collar. Over the course of decades, the jacket’s traditional navy and blue colors multiplied into an infinite amount of options.

Light weight and durable, quilted jackets can be layered under your favorite blazer, denim jacket, or trench coat, making them wearable into the winter months. Brands like Ralph Lauren, A.P.C., and Burberry have perfected this iconic staple piece.
