I am happy to see the return of the denim jacket. Although it never truly went away but I hadn't seen any newer versions in the stores in the last couple of years.
I find it to be a wonderful wardrobe staple as it can be worn with so many outfits and provides a good layer in the summer months when the temperature gets cooler in the evenings.
When worn right, it can look laid back yet very fashionable. It can be worn over designer silk dresses, thrown over form fitted dresses and heels for an evening look or with long flowy maxi dresses, shorts and skirts for casual day wear.
Here are a couple of pictures that show how a denim jacket can be incorporated in your wardrobe.
Fitted, cropped style worn with a long maxi dress
Relaxed styles worn with casual day dresses and denim jeans in a different color.
There are so many styles (cropped, relaxed, biker, blazer cut) available now and in many different colors so you should have no problem finding a denim jacket that suits your style. Here are some of my favorite denim jackets available in stores -
|Pamela Love for J.Crew - $295|
|Textile Elizabeth & James - $395|
|Current Elliott - $228|
|Lauren by Ralph Lauren - $149|
|Free People Cropped Jacket|
