After years of public school education the association between September and that back-to-school anticipation has been burnt onto our synapses. This antsy feeling often results in a strong compulsion to get prepared for the changes autumn brings, in other words, binge-shopping. The women on the Denim Therapy team always turn first to ASOS to satisfy this urge. The UK online retailer started in 2000 and launched ASOS Marketplace in 2010. This new expansion to their site serves as a platform for independent boutiques to sell their goods. We try to support our fellow small businesses whenever we can and ASOS Marketplace is a pretty good place to start if you like the styles the online giant sells. Check out our favorite denim pieces for fall sold on the Marketplace below.
Be still our hearts… it’s the Alexander McQueen Harrington Leather-Trimmed Waxed Denim Jacket. “Denim jackets became synonymous with rebel cool throughout the 20th Century and this aligns with Alexander McQueen‘s distinctive aesthetic. This tactile waxed black piece is bolstered with a leather collar and detailed with slanted zip pockets, imbuing it with an element of hard-edged masculinity. It’s the kind of piece that will wear impeccably with age, adding to its appeal.” (Mr. Porter)

We’ve got a serious thing for the Public School Washed-Denim and Leather Jacket. It features a cool, color blocked construction and has gone through a washing process for a soft, comfortable feel when worn. Pairing well with chinos or dark wash jeans, this is a great transition piece to carry you from summer to fall. Denim and leather jackets were a big trend last fall, and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere.

We’ll take one of each.

As the ice melts away and we greet spring (with huge, huge smiles, obviously), we’re all facing our closets with similar questions. It’s no easy task dressing for the in-between seasons, when it’s not warm enough to go bare legs, but not cold enough to wrap up in layers. Here’s one tip on pairing your favorites from both season into one great look, care of style blog Swellmayde, featured below.
This look includes a great medium wash denim jacket draped over a black floral dress (the color of the dress, or lack there of, makes it perfect for early spring), with a black leather bag and booties. Both of the accessories have a nice touch of metallic hardware, making this the ideal ensemble for between seasons. See more photos here.

We love a good throw-back, especially when it provides us with amazing style inspiration. eat, sleep denim totally gets it, and they recently hailed Blondie’s Debbie Harry as a vintage denim style icon. One look at these high waisted pink jeans and classic denim jacket, and you’ll surely agree. There are a host of good pics to gawk at, in case you need a reminder that denim will always be the coolest textile ever. P.S., can we have these pink frames too?

Alessandra Ambrosio was recently seeing strolling through LA wearing a gorgeous front-slit floral skirt and a Bella Dahl Denim Bomber Jacket in “River” wash. We love the combination of a chambray jacket and a flowing, summery skirt. Some metallic arm candy and simple flat sandals round out the casual daytime look. You could also layer a swimsuit beneath rather than a tank, for a transitional daytime to beach look. What can we say? We’ve got summer fun on the brain.
Grab a Bella Dahl Denim Bomber Jacket and get the look!
