One of the hottest trends of 2015 has been denim everything. From dresses to overalls, flares to skirts, and vests to denim jackets — you name it, we’ve seen it. However, the denim jacket has prolonged it’s wear and become the ultimate Summer to Fall layering piece. Trust, it’s here to stay. The jacket I’m wearing in these photos is unfortunately a one of a kind piece that I purchased from a small boutique here in Dallas, but achieving this patched denim jacket look can be quite easy and affordable. First purchase a plain denim jacket, collect fun patches from the different places you travel (something I plan to do) or cute hipstapatch ones online. The more eclectic the patches are, the more meaning each of them have, and the more YOU they are….the better.
For the dress, I went with a tight body-con dress that would give my figure some shape since . I believe in balancing outfits out — if your jacket is on the looser side and not cropped, wear a fitted dress to highlight your figure and give your look a more feminine appeal. If it’s on the more tailored/cropped side, try wearing a flowy maxi dress or a simple shift dress to give your look some dimension. I plan to wear this same jacket with this long sleeve stripe dress as we transition into the colder days of Fall/Winter.
P.S. I will be living in these loafers this Fall (especially for work) but they’ve been sold out, so these patent leather pointed snake embossed loafers are a great second option and they’re only $109! Score!!
