Styling Tip

If you go denim-on-denim, do it right. Throw one of these over a pair of one-wash blue jeans and a simple white T-shirt or henley.

Denim Jackets

An unlined, lightweight denim jacket is more versatile than you think. It functions as a rugged outerwear choice for the warmer months, and then becomes an indispensable layer when the weather gets cooler. You can throw it underneath anything from a sport coat to a peacoat. Even in the dead of summer, you can still pull on a denim jacket on a breezy night (or in places where the air conditioning is notoriously cold, like movie theaters.) In short, they're not a bad thing to have folded up in a bag or in the car. Lately, I've had my eyes on a couple that stand out because they're not your basic blue, but are just as easily wearable.


Based on the Lee-100 Westerner, this ecru color has a slightly longer body for a modern fit and zig-zag stitched details for vintage appeal.
