Street Style: Denim Jacket as Cape

A denim jacket is one of those wardrobe essentials. As essential as a pair of black pants, or in this case a little black dress. But how to give it a new twist? Wear it as a cape! This past season, I’ve seen the return of wearing jackets over the shoulders like capes, but never with a denim jacket. This modern take on it, gives a whole fresh new feel to a classic stand by. Of course with the asymmetrical hemline of the dress like some of Alexander Wang’s hemlines this season.  I’m a huge fan of this look, especially with the cross body bag. You couldn’t get any more perfect than that.
