Denim jackets date back many decades, and, because of the recycling of trends, they are now back in style. With the recent happenings of Fashion Week, it is every Fashionista’s dream to see what will be in style for the next season. At New York Fashion Week the denim jacket trend was spotted on the runway of Amy Smilovic’s label, Tibi. Many celebrities have been photographed sporting denim jackets, so it is no wonder it has become such a ready-to-wear staple item.

How To: With fall just underway it is sometimes hard to wear something you will be the perfect temperature in. This Fashionista has dressed for fall with perfection. First, start with a sundress that was a staple in your summer wardrobe and pair it with a denim jacket. Next, look for a fun sock and shoe combination. This can be done with bootie wedges, booties or even flats. Add some extra flair to your outfit by adding a fun bow in your hair or an excessive amount of jewelry!
