How to Style a Jean Jacket

Most women own a pair of jeans or two. Just as you can wear pretty much anything with jeans, a jean jacket is just as versatile, perhaps more so.

These ladies inspire me. I never owned a jean jacket until my blogging friends showed me how they wear theirs.

My daughter Jean is wearing her thrifted denim jacket with a gorgeous purple dress by Synergy, organic cotton, that she sells in her eco boutique. I love her store!

“Everything in the store is free of animal products. And everything is a combination of fair trade, organic, local, USA-made, and/or recycled. We choose brands who think big, have small footprints, and give back.” ~ Drizzle and Shine

Fashion with compassion: for people, animals and our world.


Karen‘s outfit is a perfect example of summer into fall transition, “The olive color say ‘Fall’, while my sleeveless blouse say ‘not yet’.” ~ Karen

Gail is wearing a faded denim jacket with a lovely shade of blue chambray overlay dress and cute booties.


Suzanne chose a look that is glamorous with an animal print dress and high heels. Love how she added a skinny belt. I picture her walking through the streets of Paris.


Patty is wearing a cute little cap-sleeved denim jacket, perfect for wearing over a peplum top or tank top. This is a great style for warm weather.


Annette’s outfit is a classy, casual look, just what you’d expect from a lady of style. All black: silky blouse and tailored trousers. Her metallic shoes complete this look.


Anna’s thrifted jacket is perfect for brooch collectors, hers is embellished with unique ones and each one tells a story. I particularly like the little lizard.


I’m wearing a black faux suede skirt and faux suede boots with my thrifted jean jacket and added a black fabric flower.


Do you own a denim jacket?

I’ll be on my way home to Canada on Sunday and can’t wait to sort through a thousand photos–September in Seattle–a fabulous time with Jean in her new eco boutique. I enjoyed a wonderful shopping spree and I’m going home with a new wardrobe. All clothes, shoes and accessories are fair trade, organic, and cruelty-free.

    Super, that you had a great time there! I used to have a Denim and then I didn’t like it anymore, so I don’t own one anymore. For some reason I am not so into denim anymore. I own one pair of jeans and that is from my sister. 🙂

  8. Yes ! Yes ! Yes ! Denim jacket is even more a ‘must have’ than a white jacket 😉 Your choices are great, you’ve shown, that any woman at any time can be inspired by a little jacket like that. In my opinion apart from the very obvious practical side of owning one -there is also something else – we simply look younger and more flamboyant in them. Have a super sunny day ( at least here 😉 ) – love Margot 🙂
