Denim Days... October 02 2013, 1 Comment

One of my favorite closet staples is a denim jacket.  It adds a cool, meets fun, meets casual element to your look.  But you have to be careful of the fit, otherwise you start looking like the 1990's, Tiffany, Mall Rat version of yourself.  If you weren't alive then, just keep it to yourself.  Make sure the style isn’t too big and boxy. The lines of the jacket that run along your ribs should cut in a bit, to create a fitted look. If you'll wear your jacket as a layering piece, opt for one that has been washed for a worn-in finish as it will lay more comfortably over your other clothes.   Would you wear this look?  I'd really love to hear from you!

The main thing to look for when trying on denim jackets is fit. Make sure the style isn’t too boxy on your body. The lines of the jacket that run along your ribs down to your waist should cut in a bit, but not so much that it wears like a second skin. If you plan to wear your jacket over a lot of flimsy summer dresses or items made of thinner fabric, opt for a denim jacket that has been washed for a worn-in finish as it will be more pliable and move better and lay more comfortably over your other clothes. If it’s a more tomboy-vintage look you'd like, a rigid denim jacket in a rich indigo (like the one from Levi’s) will do the trick.
