Ahhh the denim jacket. It's a classic piece that no fashionista should be with out. You can pair it up with a maxi dress like Nicole Richie did for a casual out and about afternoon, pair it up with some slacks like Rhianna or even make it edgy like Whitney Port did. It can easily take you from day to night. Here are some tips from Nina Garcia when shopping and wearing denim jackets.
- Be extreme. It should either be really dark or really worn out.
- Buy it a size too small or find a really fitted model.
- In general, don’t wear it with another piece of blue denim. The jean tuxedo is strictly for the cowboys. Who actually rodeo and herd cattle. But a blue jean jacket with white jeans is a definite yes!• Every jean maker should have a version, but a few great sources include Levis, A.P.C., Diesel, Marc by Marc Jacobs. And of course, the vintage shops.
