there is something inherently american about blue jeans and denim jackets. i really do love a denim jacket with nearly everything (same as a perfect-on-you black moto leather or pleather jacket). pair it with jeans, a white dress, all black, boots….wear it any season of the year. it really is a wardrobe staple and i definitely encourage all of you to invest in one that fits you perfectly for how you want to wear it (i.e., if you want to wear it with a light hoodie at a tailgate be sure to try one on with a hoodie on underneath).
here are some ideas of how to wear your denim jacket this fall:
pair with a cluster of brooches. etsy is great for this (vintage finds!) or even H&M or a place like claire’s or xsre. wherever you find some you like. if you want to incorporate some color into an all-white brooch, check out emily’s (cupcake and cashmere, emily) tutorial for a quick and easy DIY – just remember, this is SO not the time for family heirlooms.
this is definitely one of my favorite looks for fall. pair your jean jacket with an extra dark wash jean and brown booties or wood soled platforms. obviously you can wear chambray with this, but paired with a crisp white shirt under a buttoned up jean jacket gives a little extra interest for the season. i also love this look with nice navy blue dress or work pants – perfect for that weeknight drinks with the girls straight from the office.
for a great weekend look that is totally effortless, pair your favorite black denim and boots with a neutral t and your denim jacket. very grab and go! or throw (on) and go!
denim jackets go a little extra sexy with cigarette jeans in a dark navy or black, a low cut t and those black pumps that make you feel like a million bucks.
my office is pretty casual so i love this look with my dark wash flare jeans on a friday (or really any day that isn’t client facing). pair a pinstripe button down with a sequin tank or vest and add some layered necklaces for extra sparkle. rock a top knot and relatively understated makeup.
so, ladies, will you be rocking your denim jacket into the fall?
