Growing up in the 90’s, I didn’t like jean jackets. I know, ridiculous right? There were sooooo many hilarious choices and I chose to wear none of them. I took that negative jean jacket stigma with me through the years and I can’t remember ever owning or wearing a jean jacket on my own accord.
But something changed last spring. Suddenly I found myself staring a bit longer at the jean jackets in the store. I was liking blog posts focusing on using them as a completer. I even tried some on ::gasp!:: But I always felt like they were too boxy so I never bought them.
So here’s the thing, after reading a post on putting me together, I thought I would take advantage of the Old Navy sale to try out a utility vest. One thing lead to another (aka I wanted free shipping) and I ended up putting in an order for both this new utility vest, and a jean jacket.
Now that my jacket is here, I find myself trying it on and taking it off over and over again. I can’t figure it out! Do I want it bigger? Smaller? Less boxy? More boxy? Should it be more distressed? Less distressed? What’s my deal!
Obviously I have an issue, so I’m opening up the question to you. What do you look for when buying and styling your jean jackets? What tips do you have for a jean jacket novice?
