I feel kind of lame that I don’t own a denim jacket; I want one, but I’ve never found THE PERFECT DENIM JACKET. For me, they’re not that easy to find, I had a white denim jacket by Theory that I really loved, but didn’t wear much. And I have other jackets, like this sweatshirt jacket by Madewell that I LOVE LOVE LOVE, and wear quite often:
And now, Madewell’s added lots of new stuff to the site, including this denim jacket/shirt, which is really a shirt IMO. But I like it.
Except that it’s longer than I like for wearing with dresses. Clearly, I need to make an in-person trip to Madewell to check it out myself and see if it would work for me. I love my “army” jacket from Madewell, and it seems about the same length…but I can’t wear that with short dresses, it takes over the entire outfit.
What do you think about this one? Is it too shirt-y? too distressed? Do you have a favorite denim jacket? Details please 🙂
It looks a bit “blazerish” to me, not that that’s a bad thing. But if you’re looking for a denim jacket, I’d hold out for one that is more cropped so it looks cute over dresses, etc. Does Shopbop.com have anything that fits the bill with the extra 20% off???
I do like it… but I dont think its THE denim jacket (if it even is a jacket).. I think you should continue your hunt.
Oh, have you seen Madewell’s new “Windy Day Jacket” in Moss? Maybe in person (no madewell store around me)? What do you think of it and the sizing? Good/stylish fit or too bleh? I really like it but its a bit pricey and I want to make sure it would be a good fit.
you’re right about it not being THE denim jacket…it could be A denim jacket though LOL
i haven’t been to a madewell store in person in forever…hopefully will go soon, so i’ll try to check it out for you 🙂
