UNIFORM | Layering Denim Jackets

Photos clockwise from top left: via Trashness, MidNorth Mercantile (thanks Kelsey Huberty), Convoy.

I love the menswear trend of layering a denim jacket under a blazer or peacoat or field jacket and am totally jumping on that. I wore one under a leather jacket the other night and think it's a great way to both dress down and add a little edge to an otherwise ordinary outfit. I haven't seen any girls do it, but I found a few photos online (one of them is Jenna Lyons, of course) of the trend happening in womenswear. What do you guys think? Yea or nay?

I say "yay"! Although sadly I don't think denim jackets are great for warmth.

I love this look and it suits both men and women.

Now if only I had a good wool coat to layer my jean jacket with . . .

Yay, I do this all the time! Though the other way round, I wear a fitted leather jacket under an oversized denim one.

My vote's "yes!" I like that it adds texture and extra visual interest to an otherwise conventional ensemble.

I have been doing this for years. I love it! Just think of the denim jacket as a denim shirt, just cooler. Plus, you get an extra set of pockets. :)

Yay. Going to try denim under a dated fur jacket to make it modern.

Late to the party, but I say 'yay' and sometimes cheat by using a denim vest to get the same look (...albeit minus the warmth) without restricting my arms with the extra set of sleeves.

I would love to try this look!
Unfortunately, the weather in my area makes it impractical to do multiple layers without becoming a hot mess.
