Have you got a denim jacket?

Denim jackets are bang on trend for Spring and Summer, worn with a floral maxi or vintage dress on warmer days or over woollies when the weather is on the turn, they are a stylish classic that always tend to be in fashion.

I thrifted this jacket from Sue Ryder charity shop for £4.45 and its the ideal companion for my floral dresses that I just can't wait to wear.

Topshop also have a great selection, in white, black, light and dark washes, check them out here.
Topshop indigo wash jacket, £40

And cult label Current/Elliot have this fabulous denim 'Snap' jacket available at Net-A-Porter for £220, which is also a stylish, timeless classic and bound to be in the wardrobe for years to come.



Will you be in a denim jacket this Spring and Summer-what will you wear with it?

I am more looking forward to wearing my lightweight leather jacket from Mrs Sting's sale!

One of my favorite denium jackets had a black velveteen collar. I loved to have it over my sun dresses.

Such a nice thrifty price by the way.

ellie said...

I'm going to have to go dig mine out of the closet now. Wow, what a deal.

I think the jacket always looks great with yellow..for some reason.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Wendy-yes, I'll be wearing my Mrs Stings stuff more this year too!

Hi the oaks-your jacket sounds lovely!

Hi ellie-Yes, yellow is a fab, vibrant colout to go with denim, I agree!

Ah, the denim jacket is officially back! It's not exactly my style, so I think I will skip on this trend!

Bisous,

Anny said...

I wear mine over something substantial. I don't know why jean pants are so warm but denim jackets are so cold!

So great dear. I don't have a denim jacket, just a blazer and a shirt, but I could own a jacket, if for that price....

All the best

Of course I'm attracted to the most expensive jacket! I love the tight cut of the sleeves and the wash. Maybe I'll luck out at my local thrift!

LaMimi said...

I happen to have a few denim jackets, but they are all different in their washes and cuts. I usually wear them over a simple white t and a full skirt, or over a colorful top and white linen pants and flats....Oh, I can't wait for the spring to come! :)

Hi everybody-thanks for the fab comments, glad to see some of you wil be in a denim jacket this Spring and Summer!

Anika said...

Yep, no matter how 'in' or 'out' denim jackets are, I always have a few around the place as they always work. Effortless and like you said, work perfectly over summer dresses.

I really like the one you thrifted too...its got the right proportions, fit and colour. Nice job :)

bronwyn said...

I'm definitely on the lookout for the pefect denim jacket!

Cal said...

I wear mine with floral dresses like you do as well as with tailored pants, a sharp button down shirt and a flowery scarf for work.

shopinchic said...

Sharon Rose said...

I love my denim jackets, I have about 5 different styles. Now I really love the trench coat below. It is a must on my list! Deb

ellie said...

thanks so much for the note. I really enjoy your feedback. Its much appreciated.

I hope you are having a good week.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ladies-much appreciated, lovely comments, thanks!

The only denim jacket that's looked good on me is one I got in Sri Lanka for the equivalent of $4 (a garment factory leftover)! The brand is "Fubu" ... not familiar with that, but it's curvy and flattering, unlike most denim jackets which don't flatter me at all as I'm top-heavy.

But I'm on the lookout for a lighter colored denim jacket too. Wish the thrift/charity shops around here had a good one, but so far no such luck. :o(

I do adore the Current/Elliott one, by the way! But then I'm madly in love with pretty much anything by that brand. Just wish I could afford it, lol!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Anchibride-the Fubu one sounds nice, good luck hunting down the lighter wash one!

Cheryl Lynn said...

I recently bought 3 new denim jackets! I absolutely love them!

I hope everything is going great with you. Have a wonderful weekend, my Sweet!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Cheryl Lynn-thats great you're so in to them too! Have a lovely weekend!
