Fall is officially here, which means it's time to start thinking about layers.

While it's not quite chunky sweater or puffer jacket weather (phew!), it's not exactly throw-on-a-tank-and-go weather either. So what do you do on those slightly cooler, but still warm days? That's where the denim jacket comes in handy.

Whether you have one tucked in your closet or are in the market for a new style, it's time to upgrade this staple for the new season.

From patches to distressed denim, there are plenty of ways to make your jacket feel customized and personal. Style expert and founder of, Lilliana Vazquez, visited TODAY Friday to share some great ideas.
