Okay, everybody, let’s talk denim jackets! If you’re thinking that this may be the wrong time of the year to be writing about this subject, we say keep reading as 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 period into autumn as being the best time to play and experiment with layers. The denim jacket makes a strong 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 give it a go, don’t be afraid to throw a blazer over your denim. The contrast in textures gives off an unexpected casual vibe with some added sophistication. On days 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 comfortably say that denim jackets combine well with just about anything. Corduroys, chinos, dress slacks, other denim. Yes! It all works!

Jared Leto shows us how to pull off a casual grunge look while keeping it cool.
