Okay, everybody, let’s talk denim jackets! If you think this may be the wrong time of the year to write about this subject, keep reading; we just may convince you otherwise.

If you had kept up with some of our earlier articles (here’s to hoping that you have), you would have noticed a theme referring to the transition into autumn as the best time to play and experiment with layers.

The denim jacket makes a solid case to be one of those layers you reach for.

With its rugged and masculine appeal, the denim jacket presents a creative way to add some texture to your outerwear collection. As an inner layer, it would pair well sitting under a long trench coat or even under a trendy moto jacket.

If you’re willing to try it, don’t be afraid to wear a blazer over your denim. The contrast in textures gives off an unexpected casual vibe with some added sophistication.

On days when you’re not fighting subzero temperatures, it looks great over a knit cardigan or a polo-neck sweater. As we move on to trousers, we can say that denim jackets combine well with anything: corduroys, chinos, dress slacks, and other denim. Yes! It all works!

Jared Leto shows us how to pull off a casual grunge look while keeping it cool. “Catching me smiling in a pic is like finding an albino jackalope. Fun@ #coachella,” Jared tweeted with a picture of him smiling.
