When it comes to autumnal outerwear, few things beat a classic blue jean jacket. But since a single jacket can only hold so many pins and patches — or just to change things up — it could also be worth trying the slightly more special-occasion looks below.

Fleece-Lined

1. Straight Size Jacket 2. Plus Size Jacket

The standard DJ’s rugged cousin, perfect for getting your lumbersexual on.

Biker

If you’re feeling rock ‘n’ roll, something a bit more zippy might be in order.

Hooded

Make like KStew and embrace the sweatshirt. Slouchy as fuuuuck.

White

Love the shape of your classic jacket, but not always the color? Play it preppy with a plain white version, or pick up a bottle or two of dye for a little custom DIY.

Black

Similarly, black is the perfect base for paint, studs, bedazzling, and more. Drunk (or not) craft nights forever!

Ruffled
