STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Denim Days are Not Over

Denim on denim, or just denim in general, has made an extremely popular comeback in the past few months. Different washes and cuts among the reintroduction of the denim jacket have created many modern and fashion-forward advances in outerwear. These items are incredibly utilitarian as well in that they last for a long time and move through changing seasons well, qualifying these pieces as an absolute essential to any Fashionista's wardrobe.

On an unusually dreary day in Tempe, I spotted this Fashionista wearing a unique denim jacket. It had the cut of a bomber, but appeared to be made out of denim. With a closer look, I saw it was actually a soft jersey-type material that looks like jean. This is possibly one of the coolest jackets that I’ve seen in a while. The zipper detail adds interest and the piping adds structure to the soft fabric. The color of the jacket is vibrant and pops against her all-black ensemble. Her sleek boots and pulled back hair also contribute to a calm, cool vibe and finish off the look nicely.

Finding a similar jacket to the featured Fashionista’s may be difficult, but I recommend wearing denim items on top in contrast to your staple pair of Levi jeans. Try this cropped jean jacket from Nasty Gal or this striped denim jacket from Forever 21. Moving into spring, a vest might be more comfortable. Try this cut-off denim vest from Urban Outfitters or this hooded denim vest from Forever 21.
