the essential denim jacket

I reserve a blog post for the denim jacket each Spring, because it’s one of those peices that never fails to be a wardrobe essential. While a jean jacket can be worn year-round, it is especially useful during transitional seasons like Spring and Fall. This layering piece has the power to transform short-sleeved and sleeveless dresses into seasonally appropriate outfits on cool days, can “dress down” a dressy look and makes any outfit look effortlessly chic.

Like jeans, a denim jacket can pair with just about anything. My only firm “rule” about a denim jacket is to never pair it with blue jeans. You might see celebrities occassionally sport this look in fashion magazines, but believe me, it is very difficult to actually pull off!

Each year, I like to find my favorite denim jackets to recommend to both my personal styling clients and you, my blog readers. This season, I am pleased to have found a FAB denim jacket {the one I am wearing in this post} that is UNDER $30! This jacket has a perfect-wash color and an ideal cropped length to wear over dresses and with skirts. I just love it!

If you don’t love this one, here are a few other tried-and-true denim jackets…I have either tried all of these on personally or styled clients in them and assure you they are all great!

Happy Friday!

    Hi Lauren,

    Love this look and your great advice! I believe that we are similar in size. Can you tell me if you’re wearing a small or an XS in this jacket?

    Thanks so much!
