Top Denim Jacket Picks for Spring!

Springtime is the perfect time to add that extra layer (and extra style) to any outfit, dressing it up or down.  The jean jacket is a classic that will probably never go out of style!!  I love layering over a sundress or maxi for a concert, mixing it up with a nicer dress and funky heels, or just adding more layers to a casual tee and sneakers. After lots of searches and reading reviews, here’s my take on on my favorite jackets available in the market right now.  I don’t own any of these – yet – but will get my hands on a couple of them soon!

  1. Distressed Light Denim ($29) from Forever 21 – the standard with a bit of an 80’s feel in the light colored denim.
  2. Toggle & Loop Denim Jacket from Ralph Lauren ($99.99 on sale) – this one’s got that perfect mix of rustic + preppy.
  3. Coated Stretch Denim Jacket from Ralph Lauren ($29 super sale, size L only) – Too good a sale to pass up if they still have your size.
  4. 1969 Denim Trench from Gap ($49.95) – I LOVE this one.  The trench style and pleats give it that extra feminine feel.
  5. 1969 Deconstructed Denim Vest from Gap ($59.95) – wear this one right on into summer, and fall, too.
  6. Moto Acid Oversized Jacket from Topshop ($85) – super cool in an acid-washed lilac color.  Very 80s/90s!
  7. Carmen Denim Jacket in white from Acquaverde on ($206) – this double buttons and fitted style give this jacket an extra modern look!
  8. Open Shirt Stained Jacket from The Great on (on super sale for $127) – there’s just something about this one. I’m completely obsessed.  It looks like I could absolutely live in this shirt/jacket and never want to take it off.

#6 and #8 are my absolute favorites and will likely be making their way into my closet!!  Images below belong to the sites linked.

  1. At this time it sounds like WordPress is the best blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
