10th Commandment: January 31
Jan 31, 2013
One month of 2013 completed. Where does the time go?
I receive a number of e-mails regarding denim jackets. Are they out of style? How do I wear one? Why are they so expensive? So I thought that I would quickly answer those questions here.
Whether a denim jacket is on trend depends on how you wear it. A suburban soccer Mom would wear it with chinos and a white tee and flip flops, this is not a fashionable look. Utilitarian, sure, but not fashionable.
A hipster would wear an acid washed one with some crazy studs on the pockets and Dr. Martens, this is how the kids in Anaconda, Montana dressed in 1992…draw your own conclusions.
How does a fashionable woman wear one? By using it as a contrast to more feminine pieces, like a flirty chiffon dress, a full skirt or colored pants and a silk blouse. I also recommend rolling the sleeves a bit instead of buttoning them.
(If you want a lighter wash, this J.CREW jacket is in the same price point.)
