When it comes to early fall, there’s so much to love. The weather is perfect—not too hot, not too chilly—and in terms of getting dressed, it’s prime time for busting out all of our favorite transitional pieces. Personally, I’m excited to bring my denim jackets out from the back of my closet and snag a few new ones for my collection while I’m at it. They’re just so easy to wear, and I consider them one of my outerwear go-tos during the in-between seasons.
After scouring Instagram for some good fall outfit inspiration, I noticed that styling them with skirts just might be the look for fall. Jean jackets and skirts—from slinky midis and maxis to matching denim minis—are the combo fashion people are currently loving.
To help kick off jacket season with a bang, I rounded up some of the best looks I came across. Keep scrolling for the chicest ways to wear jean jackets with skirts—and, of course, shop the top pieces of the season.
We’re big fans of cropped denim jackets. They’re great layering pieces, especially when worn closed over a longer top. Pairing one with a flowing, pleated skirt like the above can really elevate a casual look.
