It's got just the right amount of wear and tear.

While I enjoy living in my leather moto jacket once fall arrives, sometimes you have to switch it up — and that's where this denim jacket comes in. The oversized silhouette has the same relaxed fit as my leather jacket (and my other fall staple, the parka), which makes for easy layering over lightweight knits and oversized sweatshirts. Plus, this jacket's denim is lighter than most versions, so it doesn't feel stiff and bulky; instead, it feels comfortably worn-in. The distressed details (rips, tears and frays) can be a hit or miss for most, but I find it adds the same rebel feeling that comes with throwing on a leather jacket.

Currently, I pair it with nearly everything in my closet, from a vintage T-shirt and trousers to a sweater dress and tights. Once winter gets here, I know I'll be hanging this outerwear item up for a while, but at least I know I can always bring it back for the spring and summer.
