The Versatile Jean Jacket

Until Chadwicks of Boston sent me this great fitting jean jacket, I had never owned one in blue denim.

The style is offered in several colors including this one in Indigo Denim.

I thought it would be fun to show you some of the ways I plan to enjoy wearing this versatile jacket.

First I paired it with a long black mesh hem tank and khaki pants.

This is the same look with flats for those of you who like to wear them.

 Then I tried it with a white long sleeve tee and colorful ankle pants.

It is rare that I wear a bold print. When I do, I keep all my other accessories such as the smooth cuff, clean and sleek with no other patterns or texture.

The jacket would also work for an out to dinner look when we are dining in the courtyard at our favorite restaurant. Here I paired the jacket with a V-neck black tank dress and heels.

Next I paired the jacket with all white and pops of turquoise.

When I layer a short jacket over a longer shirt, I only use one that is very soft and flowing so that it adds the least amount of bulk.

Love the look. I own a denim jean jacket similar to this one you are wearing from Chadwicks. I am interested in the black mesh tank. Looks very cute with the jacket.

The black mesh tank is old from Chico's.

I love your khakis… May I ask where you purchased them?

Susan said...

That was from a while ago but I think those are from Chico's.
