Having the perfect fall jacket can pull together any outfit. While walking across campus this week, I noticed a variety of motorcycle, denim and leather jackets. For me, fall fashion is about finding staple items to incorporate into your wardrobe, and statement outerwear pieces are the perfect place to begin. Not only do jackets like these help you stay warm, but they also help distinguish individual style.

How To: Ready to look trendy for class like this Fashionista? Start with the perfect fall jacket. I’m loving simple denim jackets with a touch of leather. Layering is key for chilly weather so try wearing a tank top and a cozy thermal under your jacket. Finish off your look with a pair of tailored oxfords.
