How to Find the Perfect Fit 

The perfect fit  of a denim jacket is based more on personal preference and less on any specific guidelines. However, one good rule of thumb is to focus on fit. Your denim jacket should fit squarely on your shoulders, not too snug or too loose. Find one with a little bit of stretch so you can layer sweaters underneath for fall.

If you’ve mastered denim on denim, try pairing your denim jacket with a brightly hued pair of trousers or pants. A denim component never hurt any outfit!

Throw your jacket over a sundress or maxi to ward off any breezes, all while adding structure to your look. In cooler months this outerwear pairs perfectly with a sweater dress and booties.
