Fall 2021 must-have piece: How to wear the new denim jacket A classic.

Jeans jackets have always been around, deemed cool and edgy by some or just frumpy and unstylish by others. In fact, everyone’s had a jeans jacket at some point in their lives. And in 2021, luxury fashion designers have brought back the typical workers jacket for fall, but this time around, the denim outwear comes revamped. Fashion enthusiasts have jumped on the new jeans jacket trend and are showing on Instagram how to wear the versatile outwear that’s already become a must-have piece for fall 2021.

How is the new denim jacket different?

Forget your old ripped denim jacket because the new versions for fall 2021 look smart and have details that make them look more expensive and high-end. The French brands Christian Dior, Sézanne, Saint Laurent, and Claude Pierlot, for example, added a waist-cinching belt on theirs. Additionally, embellishments like contrasting stitch colours, chic hardware, detachable lace collars, and panels elevate the indigo outwear.

And you’ll also find white, cream, and coloured denim jackets like Emilia Wickstead and Ganni’s fall 2021 must-have pieces. To sum up, the new indigo can come cropped, oversized or fitted, with long or short sleeves, as long as the casual American material feels luxurious.

How to wear the fall must-have jacket

The key to style the new denim jacket in fall 2021 is to mix it with refined pieces to achieve the Y2K high-low style trend. For example, wear it with a chic A-line skirt as we saw at Christian Dior, or with tailored trousers and high-heeled shoes, a big A/W 2021 trend. Additionally, you can throw a cool trucker jacket over silk dresses or tops for chic office outfits.
