15 Ways to Wear a Black Denim Jacket This Fall

A blue jean jacket will forever be a staple in your wardrobe. You can wear it year-round, layer it over practically everything, and pull it out for nearly every occasion, whether it's an early morning brunch, a day of shopping, or a fall tailgate. Sometimes, however, a blue jean jacket can end up feeling a bit too casual.
