Style Sleuth: Get Down & Dirty With Denim Jackets

April 7, 2014 • Magazine, Style Sleuth


Chicago just got a little bit of sun over the weekend, so you know what that means? It’s officially time for spring! And nothing says sunny weather and bright skies than being able to toss on a denim jacket and run out the door to all the fun things now you get to do outside. Since denim is a classic wardrobe staple, wearing one is easy as apple pie. You probably even have one in your closet you’re thinking of right now. But there’s always room for one more denim jacket!

It’s a no-brainer on how to wear your denim jacket. Of course you can wear it with your favorite maxi dress, but have you thought of pairing one with a cocktail dress? It makes an otherwise formal look a bit more casual (and great for those nighttime dates). White and acid wash are back in style so you can grab a vintage jacket without breaking the bank. Studs add an edgier look to your basic T-shirt and skirt combo. And denim-on-denim is still fun to do!

Also, think about how you would like to wear your jacket. You can always keep the jacket slim for a sleek look but think about trying out a slightly oversized, boyfriend version. This jacket is best for casual outings. Keep in mind: if you’re shorter, you might want to re-think oversized versions that make you look like you’re wearing your dad’s jacket.
