For decades, the denim jacket has been a tried and trusted cooler-weather essential. Much like the bomber jacket, they’re an easy-to-style transitional piece that’ll get you through the early months of fall, before more extreme temperatures (and snow) take the reins.
This season, our old friend got a bit of an update. The latest offerings are anything but basic, from oversized vintage fits to cropped cuts and a whole lot of distressing. However, the biggest trend we’re seeing is all about embellishment—and a lot of it. Styles that are decked out in paint, pins, patches, and studs are as common as more familiar, cleaner styles. It’s time to put away the statement necklace, and reach for the statement jacket.
