KEEP IT COUNTRY: 3 Ways to Wear a Classic Denim Jacket This Fall
There are only a few things I can’t live without—and the denim jacket is definitely one of them. This piece is crazy versatile, going from straight country to after-hours perfection effortlessly. Here are a couple of my favorite ways to rock this outerwear all-star.
1. Layer like a pro.
For the guys, pile on tees, plaids and hoodies—but it’s the denim jacket that brings it all together. It adds structure to what can otherwise be a messier look. And for the ladies, the denim jacket can provide a cool indigo contrast to Fall knits and shirts. It’s like adding a little bonus texture.
2. Canadian Tuxedo like a boss.
Yes, I know it’s not a verb but I’m making it one. The Canadian Tuxedo is making quite the comeback, so get on board. A classic denim jacket is the easiest way to rock the trend—the key is to vary your denim on the top and bottom enough so you’re not all matchy-matchy. Or if you’re gonna go that route, deep indigo works best. To brush up on the CanTux approach, re-read my original blog about it here.
3. Dress up like a badass.
For after-hours ensems, think about using the denim jacket as a statement piece—aka the only blue denim you’re wearing. Pair it with black or grey denim, or non-denim, for a rock-inspired look that puts all the focus on that killer jacket. And don’t forget your favorite boots—those are non-negotiable.
So how do you wear yours? Bonus points if I haven’t tried it yet.
