Jean Jacket Style Guide | Body Type Tips

A jean jacket can be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe IF you buy the right one. I am sharing how to find the best fit for you and where to find it on a good deal!

Buying a jean jacket and not looking like you are straight out of a family magazine from the 90’s is sometimes difficult. It all boils down to the sizing and styling for YOU. For years, I dreaded when my mom would have me wearing a jean jacket over an outfit. This is because it wasn’t the right one for me. Now I know how to style it and find the one meant for me. 

SIZING: This is my #1 tip. Size down one size. When do you ever button up your jean jacket? Never most likely. When you buy it in your typical size, it swallows you. You cannot see your outfit underneath it, all you see is your jacket. Next time you are trying on jean jackets, try one on in your typical size and a size smaller. You will then have a visual of what I am meaning. 

Here I am wearing an XS jean jacket, I typically wear a small or medium in jackets.

WASH: I typically go for a medium to dark wash. I like the contrast with muy lighter colored clothes. This also gives dimension to your outfit and can be used to make you look slimmer. Due to it being a darker wash, your eye naturally looks at the line where the jacket ends and my dress starts because of the contrast in colors. This happens to make you look at the smallest part of my body providing a very flattering look. I’ll talk more about length below!

CUT: Try and find a more tailored cut of jacket, this is always a more flattering shape on anyone. Sizing down a size, also helps with having a more tailored cut. If you are curvy, try one that has a drawstring waist! The length will draw your eye below your widest point and will give you a defined waistline.

LENGTH: If I wear a longer jean jacket then this one, I look stocky which is NOT a good thing. The length of your jacket can make it or break it. If you are Curvy, buy one below your widest point. Straight (like me), buy one at the length of your smallest point (for me it’s my natural waist). Broad Shoulder, find a length that draws your eye to your waist rather than your shoulders providing you with a very slimming silhouette.

Spring Style Tips and Tricks

T-shirt Dress Two Ways.

How to style a simple t shirt dress two ways for Spring!

I LOVE t-shirt dresses but they are sometimes a little short or the weather isn’t quite warm enough to wear them yet. I wear them these two ways in the Spring and think that you may need to try it. 




OUTFIT DETAILS
DRESS | JACKET | JEANS | HEELS | CARDIGAN | LV | KATE SPADE BAG |
RING | NECKLACE | LIPS (Snob)

I love love love t-shirt dresses. They are perfect for the Summer weather but they can sometimes fall a little short on my long legs when it’s not weather appropriate. I love this striped t-shirt dress so much and wanted to wear it this Spring without freezing all of me to the core.  

Solution: tie a knot in it so it looks like a tunic and layer it over jeans! I am fully admitting that I wore it in both these ways in the SAME week. No one knew, except now you do so please don’t make fun of me! I know you have been there too. We all get into ruts. This rut just happens to be a good one.

 Suede Jacket: This option was great for a very windy day when it was sunny out but still chilly. The jacket hits right at my natural waistline so it’s incredibly flattering. Mixing this with the distressed denim creates a more casual look without being overly casual. Of course, you don’t have to wear heels like I am! Wedges, sandals, booties, or flats would work great as well.

Pink Duster: This option is great for the warmer days of Spring. I love the pop of color mixed with the neutral elements. This is great for a casual day running errands, going out to lunch, church, etc. I love that this look makes you look so much taller with lengthening your legs while still making you look slim. 

Try tying up your favorite t-shirt dress!
