Denim jackets are surprisingly contentious. I’ve always maintained that a basic blue denim jacket is a classic piece that most women can use and wear, but just before the double-denim trend exploded all over us, many disagreed with me. This jacket is a meet-in-the-middle option: Denim material, but biker shape. A possible alternative for those who flash back to the big-shoulder 80s whenever they see a Levi’s trucker!

Are you a lover of classic denim jackets? Hope to never wear one again? Indifferent? Would you wear denim jackets that don’t look like denim jackets?

Dressed for: Pattern and Texture

I’m a big fan of coated denim. Certain finishes look extremely leather-like, and others add texture like the subtle reptile print on this jacket. I’ve been loving solids lately, but enjoyed this pop of busy print atop the black-on-black pattern. Stealth print mixing.

I generally remember to throw on a slip or pettipants when I wear tunics with leggings, but on this day I forgot. And didn’t realize I’d forgotten until we’d taken these photos and a couple of days had passed. Hence the wrinkled wad near my right thigh. I bought these leggings to replace my nearly dead black/sparkle ones, but the new ones have a much higher cotton content. They’re comfier, but also about 90 times stickier than the old ones. Well, I sure won’t forget a slip next time I wear them. Or maybe I will. I feel like my brain is becoming more sieve-like with each passing day …

Are you a slip wearer? All year, or only in winter when hosiery comes into play?
