I hope you're as excited as I am! Summer is almost here and, this ladies and gentlemen, is my favorite casual piece that every person needs in their wardrobe right now. My favorite trend of the season is the denim jacket. Not only is it a current trend, but it has always been a wardrobe staple that will always be a piece that everyone can use year after year.
Denim is currently being reinvented in the fashion world. We've all lived in the boring cycle of wearing jeans several days in the week, but imagine how refreshing it is to wear denim up top for a change? First there were Coogi jeans with eccentric designs and wallet chains, then skinny jeans came along, now we have the denim jacket. Its hard to say whether the denim jacket ever went away as it has always been a wardrobe staple, but its truly leaving it's mark in 2015.
The denim jacket is perfect for the spring and summer because its the perfect piece to keep you warm on breezy nights without making you hot. For years I'd freeze on spring and summer nights because every jacket in my wardrobe was meant for the fall and winter months; little did I know that the fashion world did cater to those dire times.
The best part of this jacket from Rue 21 is the lightweight hood attached (most denim jackets don't come with this feature). If your'e searching for a denim jacket, I'd suggest buying one with a hood as it comes in handy on rainy days. The details of this jacket are also great, as it adds a bit of individuality in a sea of denim jackets. Make sure that the jacket you choose is in as much as a trim fit as you can find, other wise you'll risk wearing a denim jacket in more of a box-cut.
Here are a few affordable options for your first denim jacket purchase:
