STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Denim Jackets

I know, I know: I’m obsessed with jackets lately—the weather is driving me nuts! However, jean jackets have been huge on campus this week. The great thing about them is that they instantly add a cute, retro aspect to any outfit.

You may be questioning the versatility of the denim, but let me assure you that they look fabulous with almost everything: floral, stripes, plaid, plain, and the list continues. Pair it with a dress for a cute daytime look, or throw it on over a cute shirt and dark jeans for nighttime. This fashionista looks absolutely adorable in her floral romper and light-washed jacket. Her outfit really pops with her jacket!

If you’re really daring, you can attempt the whole “denim on denim” look, with a denim jacket and matching jeans. This style is coming back, and looks better than you’d expect.

Whether you buy a light or dark denim is totally up to you. Depending on your skin color and wardrobe, one is definitely going to work better for you. This fashionista’s fair skin and dark blue romper are perfect for the light color that she chose.

This Current/Elliot jacket from Shopbop has a really nice dark blue color to it. Notice how the model paired it with a pair of darker pants? A flawless choice! For you light-wash fans out there, this Hinge crop jacket from Nordstrom is incredibly versatile and stylish. The crop gives it an extra element so that it will look particularly cute with a dress. However, the model proves that pants and a t-shirt look amazing too. In fact, this one looks quite similar to this week’s fashionista’s!

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Denim Jackets

As spring is approaching, we can start to replace our big coats and bring out a lighter jacket. Denim is lightweight and very appropriate for the spring weather. This Fashionisto is braving the San Franciscan spring weather in an American Eagle denim jacket. San Francisco doesn’t have four seasons, it has two temperate seasons, so it can be somewhat chilly and windy around the year. If this applies to you, you can wear layer up with long sleeved shirts, cardigans, hoodies or sweaters. Denim jackets are a nice alternative to a warmer pea coat or duffle coat. There are different shades of denim to experiment with. A medium blue is a classic, it complements most colors and skin tones. Grey denim is also a good alternative to the classic blue denim.

For Fashionistas, denim jackets can toughen up an outfit, just like the leather jacket. Pair a classic blue denim jacket with a floral dress, experiment with different lengths, mini, midi and maxi dress. For a more laid back, casual look, wear the denim jacket with a plain t-shirt and leggings and skinny jeans, this is a good look for a regular day to run errands or go grocery shopping.

In celebration of the arrival of spring, bring out your denim jacket or find a denim shirt that you can wear as a jacket on a warmer day.

Style On,

Avalonne
