How I Love My Denim Jacket

I bought my first denim jacket in the early 90s and loved it for many years. But, like so much of fashion at that time, it was oversized, so I eventually gave it away when I began wearing slimmer fitting clothing.

The denim jacket I have now, I think, has a much more flattering silhouette. (See one almost identical to mine, even down to the bronze buttons, here.) It’s fitted in the shoulders and, also, it’s cropped, which balances out the square shape. To further balance out the proportions, I’m wearing it in this post with slim-fitting pants. (Mostly, I like to follow the rule of loose top/slim bottom or slim top/loose bottom.)

Granted, a denim jacket doesn’t provide a lot of warmth, so when it’s cold outside I do wear a shirt and sweater underneath. But on this day, it was in the 70s, so it was perfect with just a black tee underneath. (And I like how the soft blue color softens all the black.)

Also, I’m wearing a new, all natural/organic vegan and gluten-free powder foundation and lipstick. For details, scroll below.
