Repeat after me:
“I will not pair my denim jacket with denim pants”
That’s really my only rule for wearing a denim jacket. While I’ve seen a few instances where this was successfully done, nine times out of ten it turns out like a 1990’s flashback.
Instead, try this fall wardrobe staple over a dress, paired with khaki, brown, black bottoms or a floral skirt, OR with this fall’s hot trend— red pants.
- A fitted or cropped jacket will be more figure flattering than a boxy cut.
- When shopping for jackets, I always look for fabrics with a little stretch added so I can actually move my arms.
- Try rolling up the sleeves of your jacket, about 3 inches above your wrist, to create a longer body line and an outfit with a little more flare.
