The New Jean Jacket

The jean jacket is a classic piece that is really coming back this season in many different styles and washes! 

Afiya Francisco showed us how to wear the new jean jacket in 3 great ways!

Look #1- The Classic Jean Jacket in a Dark Wash

The jean jacket is now not as boxy as it once was - with most fabrics incorporating stretch for a more body conscious fit.

The traditional stone wash has now been updated to a lighter, dark and even grey wash.

Pair your jacket with an animal pattern tunic and jean leggings (jeggings, as Afiya mentioned!) in black. Do be careful when wearing denim on denim as you don't want to look like your wearing a 'cowboy tuxedo'.

Where to get it:  
Classic jean jacket Hudson $310.00
Python print tunic dress Esprit $119.50
Lela Rose for Payless ankle strap heels $54.99

Look #2 - Safari Jacket

Update the classic safari jacket in a great lightweight distressed denim so it looks like you've had it for ages.

Hitting just at the hip - this length is flattering for nearly all body types!

Adjustable sleeves are great between seasons, or when going from day to night

Belt your jacket at the waist - either with the provided belt or your own (belt, scarf or tie to individualize the look)!

Pair your jacket with a pair of khaki pants and a striped shirt to finish your classic look!

Where to get it:
Denim Safari Jacket Gap $74.50
Button front shirt H&M $29.95
Khaki trousers Spanner $149.00
Lela Rose for Payless printed bow flats $49.99

Look #3 - The Trench

Updating another classic - the trench coat is now available in denim! The new fabrication really modernizes the trench allowing you to dress it up or down depending on the occasion.

The trench coat is the perfect length to just skim over dresses or with a pair of trousers if you're on the go!

Pop the collar for a little drama

Wear your trench with a linen sheath dress and some fabulous heels!

Where to get it:
Denim Trench coat Banana Republic $198.00
Linen sheath dress Liz Claiborne $129.00
Lela Rose for Payless Snakeskin Printed Bow Pumps $49.99
Necklace Banana Republic $74.00
