Look for Less: Denim Jacket

Good news for those of you who never throw things out of your closet: the jean jacket is back in style!

Reese Witherspoon loves wearing jean jackets. Reese usually wears short casual day dresses, and adds the jean jacket on top as a substitute for a cardigan.

Recently, the uber-stylish Emma Roberts wore her Elizabeth & James jean jacket (at left) with a cool blue printed maxidress. Emma has also worn her jean jacket with skinny black pants and heels. Emma is wearing TEXTILE Elizabeth & James Sid Denim Jacket.

The most important style tips for jean jackets are: 1) don't button the buttons, instead leave it open, and 2) roll up the sleeves to your elbow.

So, pull out that old jean jacket from the back of your closet (aren't you glad you kept it now!!) and wear it over a casual dress ASAP. If you don't already own a jean jacket, there are tons of affordable options.

Spend less than $100 and still look fabulous with this "western style" denim jacket from Topshop.

If you like the look of Emma's light wash jacket, get a similar color jacket that's also budget-friendly. Invest a little more and get this must-have Free People denim jacket, with its adorable two-snap button pockets. Whatever type of jean jacket you wear, remember to rock it with confidence!

  1. I contemplate throwing my jean jacket away every single year, but I cannot part with it. I might not wear it for months on end, but when I do end up pulling it out, it always works fabulously with whatever I end up wearing. A classic, indeed. And I think I bought it rather cheaply at Target...which makes it even better!
