created at: 09/24/2013

If you only think of a denim jacket as something to throw over a t-shirt, we hope this post will change your mind. Just as blue jeans can be dressed up and down, denim jackets are actually quite versatile. Paired with basic black pants and trench coat, a denim jacket can feel casually sophisticated. Throw a denim jacket over a camo blazer to give a peek of on-trend pattern. And since they work perfectly for fall, here are five ways to pull it off during this most amazing of seasons. Check out these tips from Jason of Captain Dapper.
