the great jean jacket quandry

I’ve kind of had denim jackets on the brain lately. Not sure why; the heat index around here hovers at about 115 degrees on a regular basis, and most of the time I’m not interested in any additional layers, not to mention one that is as heavy as denim.

I’ve owned multiple jean jackets in my time. Some had patches (you know it), one had a shearling collar, another was cropped to a ridiculous length, and as a child of the 80’s, I totally had an acid wash one. Pretty sure I wore that one with my matching jeans. But as an adult, I have one in my closet that just hangs and collects dust. I never know how to wear it. Stacy and Clinton always talk about the versatility of a jean jacket, but I always feel like Marty McFly in mine.

Maybe I’m not styling it right? Look how great these babes look!

Nicole works it with a maxi and a bump...

I love this totally destroyed one...

How do you feel about a denim jacket? Do you love them or loathe them? Do you have one? If so, how do you wear it?

Have a totally rad weekend, darlings.


  1. I freaking love a jean jacket! When I was a freshman at MSU, I purchased one from JC Pennys in Starkville. I loved it loved it loved it loved it. I got rid of it after losing weight because it was just not working anymore. I miss it so and haven't found one to replace it yet!

    Let me know if you find one you can't live without.

  2. i retired my recently, but circa 2004-2006 I really rocked by gap one!

  3. Old Navy has a great stone wash one right now - I wear mine with white dresses, black pants or shorts, or colorful skirts. I looooooove it. I too feel a little like Marty McFly (or Lisa Turtle) but I'm still a huge fan.

  5. The best place to learn Chinese is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to learn Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of Chinese language class and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
