It’s chilly outside but not cold enough to break out your wool winter coat – so what are we to do?! Well, denim jackets aren’t just for summer, they’re also perfect for fall. You can layer them over a sweater or wear them with a tank top, and they go so well with a variety of bottoms, from high waisted pants to skinny jeans and boots! Check out my favorite denim jackets below for some fall fashion inspiration.
This is a chic and simple jean jacket from St Laurent that has a great slim fit and timeless feel to it. I love the four pockets and slightly Western vibe to the stitching. Pair it with a great pair of skinny jeans, like these Hudson ones. Add a pop of color with some brown booties, like these Diane von Furstenburg beauties, to finish off your look!
This Burberry Brit piece is not the most conventional jean jacket, and that’s why I love it – it’s so warm, cozy and beautiful. The peplum at the bottom is extra flattering. Talk about a jacket you’ll wear forever! A pair of well tailored black paints would finish off the outfit perfectly, like this amazing pair from Narciso Rodriguez. Or, pair it with a long elegant skirt, like this fabulous Ellery one.
Bonus – a great orange Tom Ford lipstick would go so well with this look!
STEVE J AND YONI P
I love this deconstructed, casual Steve J and Yoni P jacket. It has a touch of 80’s vibe to it and is perfect for a weekend brunch! Pair it with these awesome Frame jeans and a trendy Rag and Bone fedora.
Why not try a denim cape jacket, like this exquisite Vanessa Seward piece? It’s got a flattering shape and is perfect to layer over a long sleeved black shirt for extra warmth. Wear it over her pair of high-rise, slim leg jeans!
Yes, I’m a sucker for shearling – it’s not only on trend but it’s so cozy! I love this indigo quilted coat from Sea, which would look so great paired over an elegant dress, like this stunning black Red Valentino one, or this gorgeous white Dolce and Gabbana mini lace dress:
Or toss this jacket on over a great pair of Balenciaga stretch leggings, and add in a pair of black rocker booties (like these amazing Balenciaga’s) and a pop of colorful lipstick (like this beautiful matte one from Charlotte Tilbury) for an unforgettable look!
Kim was absolutely a dream to work with. I had to find a dress for a New York red carpet film premiere, and she came to my home with amazing options to get the look perfect. She nailed it, and was so kind and supportive! She really made me feel super confident for such an important event, and took the stress off of me for getting the look together!
It was so great to work with her, and I look forward to the next time :)
