This year we witnessed the comeback of the jean jacket, which is awesome because being able to look fashion forward while wearing classic pieces you probably already own is huge a plus. But, what happens when you go fishing your denim duds out from the back of the closet, only to find there was a mouse attack? Or worse, a scissor attack you perpetrated yourself a few years back when super-destroyed denim was the hot new trend? Answer: Bring it to Denim Therapy! Witness this rockin’ repair and become a DT believer.
Colored denim, destroyed cut-off shorts, leather patches, and pairings that carry outfits from summer to fall… our favorite style points are all here in these five super-cute street style snaps from some of our favorite bloggers. Check them out for some early fall styling tips, such as long neutral cardigans over pop-color bottoms, animal print scarves over denim workshirts, and layered sheers with shredded jeans.

As the pre-frost October air gets a bit more audacious, late-fall fashion with layers and texture becomes the uniform for urban dwellers. We may have to drop our humid-weather dressing habits, but denim sticks around all twelve months of the year. Those of who can’t part with our summer cut-offs stretch a pair of wool tights over their legs. Flawless skinny jean fits are paired with dramatic fur coats. Sharp, tailored military jackets turn average Joe’s into blue-jean heroes… You get the idea. Below are some of our favorite cold weather denim trends.
