Practically every major runway had jackets and blazers worn with a belt cinched at the waist. (An easy styling trick you can achieve with items you already own). The look will make any pair of jeans instantly more polished and add definition to your boxy jackets.

Knit Sweater Vests
From Dior to Prada and Gucci, the runways exclaimed that the preppy knit is back for fall 2020. Whether you go for a neutral hue or graphic print, expect to see a sweater vest on an Instagram near you.
There were several hues that were particularly prominent on the fall runways including chocolate brown, striking blue, all shades of gray, and black. But what really caught our eye is the bright and bold cardinal red hue we spotted everywhere—a match made in heaven with blue denim.

Blankets, Capes, and Ponchos
We are 100% here for hibernating into a cool cape or draping a cozy oversize blanket over our jeans and boots this season—a trend seen in full force on the runway.
From check to tweed and plaid, heritage prints always makes its way into the fall collections. When it comes to pairing the prints with your jeans you can't go wrong with opting for an oversize blazer.
