"Build a closet full of items you love to wear." (ejs)
Ever have that one friend who is consistent through each season of your life, always there no matter the situation, who makes you feel good, is supportive and fun to be around? Hopefully your answer is YES! Well that's what your denim jacket should be!
No matter your age or stage of life, a denim jacket that you'll love to wear is key. The more you love it, the more you'll wear it, and the longer you'll keep it!
We actually suggest having two - a fitted denim jacket and a slightly oversized one. Here's why: it gives you more options and more versatility. Denim jackets can be worn with anything from dresses and skirts to joggers and jeans. It is a closet staple that can be worn in multiple seasons. That's why it's important to invest in one that you'll get a lot of wear out of.
A denim jacket is a very easy way to make a plain outfit look cool without too much effort.
Most of us are busy people. If you're anything like me, you want to look great but you don't want to spend too much time fussing over what to wear. Dressing well can be simple if you shop the right way and keep key pieces in your closet.
Where to find great denim jackets
1. Thrift Store - The thrift store is a great place to look. Be sure to check both the women's and the men's sections. The men's section is especially good for the oversized look. (Pictured below in my favorite denim jacket on the day I bought it from the thrift store)
2. Friends - Ask around. Your friend may have a denim jacket that they are bored with and are willing to swap out for something in your closet.
3. Parents - I know I know! Not necessarily ideal but sometimes our parents (and even grandparents) have some vintage gems in their closets. You might be surprised at what you'll find.
