Oh my gosh, you guys, Spring is here! It finally made it! I was sure that Winter was going to hold on forever and we would never get to sunnier days and warmer weather. It still might not be SUNNY here in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle starts being sunny in July. Sadly, I’m not kidding on that. But, there seems to be a little more sunshine poking out between the clouds, so, I’m breaking out one of my Spring staples, my denim jacket. I love to rock a denim jacket.
Throw it Over a Dress
My personal favorite. Any dress looks good with a denim jacket thrown over it. Any dress! A ballgown at the end of an evening, on your way back to your car, even that, is going to look super cute. Usually though, it’s sun dresses I’m rocking with my denim jacket.
Wear with Colorful and/or Print Pants
One great way to rock a denim jacket is to pair it with fun colored pants. Since we usually have jeans as our basic and jazz them up with colorful tops, we do the opposite here. The top will be our basic and then we can rock it with some really fun pants.
With a Basic Tee
There is nothing better than the age old combination of your favorite tee paired with your favorite denim jacket. They fit like a glove and feel like an old friend. This is my go to on weekends when I’m running around town.
Denim on Denim
For the daring girls out there, you can totally rock denim on denim without looking like Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake a la the 2001 American Music Awards. I will always remember, my college roommate would rock the denim on denim look and I was always too timid to try it. She looked fabulous and knew how to rock a denim jacket! The key is wearing different shades and washes to make it look like you aren’t wearing a denim uniform.
With a Romper
Can we talk about how much I’m loving rompers? The reason I love dresses is that you look so put together but in reality, you went in your closet, pulled out one piece of clothing and poof, instant outfit! Now. rompers are the same thing, but you don’t have to worry about the wind picking up your skirt and showing the entire Target parking lot your lovely, yellow, granny panties… Not that I’m speaking from personal experience here. And, I love how great a romper looks while you rock a denim jacket too!
