20 Style Tips On How To Wear A Denim Jacket This Fall

It’s official: fall is biggest outerwear trends are bomber jackets and denim jackets. You can’t escape them – walk into any store, and you’ll see options for both all over the place, in every color/pattern you could imagine. And honestly, why would you want to? They’re comfortable, they’re perfect for transitional weather, and they look like such a statement piece that sometimes they can be considered part of your outfit and not just outerwear. While bomber jackets might be a trend that disappears eventually, denim jackets will be around forever, because they’re a true classic. If you want to get the most of yours, then learn how to wear a denim jacket and keep it looking fresh and updated.

Despite being such a classic, denim jackets can still look dated when worn a certain way. There are some styles and fits that point to a past decade. In the ’80s, jean jackets were baggy and bulky. The ’90s featured a similar shape in light washes. In the ’70s, they were a little more fitted and full of embellishments. The denim jacket trends of today mix all of those. A medium wash is generally the most popular, but there are still plenty of shade options to pick from. While our denim jackets are definitely more fitted today than they were in the ’80s, the newer versions are getting almost as baggy. We’ve gone back to embellishments, and right now it’s hard to find someone who isn’t covering their jean jacket in pins and patches.
