As the first weeks of school settle in and the time once spent relaxing on a lounge chair poolside becomes a distant memory, we are faced with yet another season. If it weren’t for the allure of cozy sweaters, fresh foliage and all things pumpkin spiced, most of us would dread the thought of having to put away the string bikinis and beachy fedoras to get ready for fall. However, the accessories that come along with autumn are hard not to love. In a city like Boston where the weather is quite always unpredictable, having the perfect fall jacket is a must-have. Though usually considered more of a spring accent, denim jackets are making their way into the fall wardrobes of many Fashionistas and we’re loving it.

This Fashionista’s addition of a denim jacket from Joie is just one way to easily make that transition from summer to fall. Paired with leather shorts from Club Monaco and a white button-down blouse from Vince, the draped jean jacket gives the look that extra detail and texture. Since it was warmer than expected, she decided to slip on chic sandals from Nordstrom to finish it off. The simplicity of wearing black and white makes her green vintage bag pop and brings out the blue wash of her denim jacket.This Fashionista shows us how to achieve the relaxed, layered look everyone strives for in the autumn months. Jean jackets are great additions to any outfit because they come in a variety of washes.

How To: Take any denim jacket you own and simply throw it over your blouse, T-shirt or sweater. On a cooler day, wear a pair of boots with black jeans or leggings. If you’re feeling super daring, try the denim on denim look by sporting a pair of blue jeans.
