LOOK 1: DENIM AND BLAZER

A wardrobe staple like a blazer will instantly add polish to your denim. Opt for a neutral blazer in a classic silhouette to give you even more versatility. For an added layer of warmth and style that still allows your blazer to show through, try a cape on top!

LOOK 2: DENIM AND SWEATER

There’s nothing like a cozy sweater in the fall, so why not updated your denim with the season’s oversized cardigan trend? A thick cardigan is not only a warm layering piece, but it’s also very versatile since it can pull double duty in the earlier fall months as a jacket. Consider a neutral shade so that you can easily wear it with everything in your wardrobe.

LOOK 3: DENIM AND BLOUSE

A white blouse paired with denim always looks good, but if you want to put a fresh spin on the classic pairing this season, try a blouse with a ruffle detail or a puff sleeve. These are subtle trend elements that will instantly update your look.

LOOK 4: DENIM AND LEATHER JACKET

A leather jacket is another wardrobe staple that pairs so well with denim, but if you want to update your look, it’s all in how you style it. Instead of popping it over a simple t-shirt, try layering it on top of a dress instead. Just make sure that the dress has a significant slit so that you can still see your jeans.
