Denim Tips: Find Your Perfect Denim Jacket

It wasn’t so long ago that I felt like denim jackets were an outerwear piece best left to the 1990s Full House era. It wasn’t until we saw the chic reincarnation of denim-on-denim that I began to see the light. Not only do they work especially well with all the printed and colorful denim that’s so big right now, but they also layer nicely all year round. A denim jacket is perfect for slipping over your shoulders with a dress in summer months, or layering over a flannel and under a faux-fur vest in winter. Or, take a note from Jenna Lyons (above) and dress it to the nines with slick trousers and pumps.

Do you have your ideal denim jacket yet? I don’t, so I’m currently exploring my options. No matter what you’re looking for, there’s a jacket that will fit your body and your personal style!

    Hi there! This is a really inspiring look with Jenna’s coat over her denim jacket like this. I have a well worn dark wash Levi’s denim jacket in a small, so it is quite a fitted style. I also have a Topshop light wash that I made into a gilet by taking the sleeves off making it more versatile for summer dressing!

    I’m 60, and have had at least 3 in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember. I do wear jeans everyday, either blue or black, and only wear the jacket with black denim, but I use it as with summer dresses, skirts, etc. I like 3 because I want different cuts (closer, or more boxy) , different washes, and different weights. I also have had white ones from time to time, but have an off/on love affair with white denim ~ but plan on finding the right white one this Spring.

    PS – off topic, but my first wedding dress (when I was 19) I designed and had made out of a lightweight denim and vintage, crocheted lace. I’ve been obsessed with denim since forever.
