5 Ways to Style Your Jean Jacket

Elementary school, grade 4. I got my first jean jacket, which was also my first big splurge (88$ seemed like a lot of money at that age). I probably bought it with the check my aunt and uncle gave me for Christmas.

I would wear it to school, on the weekends, all the time, everywhere. It made me feel like a grown-up – something I longed for as a kid. It’s funny, today I feel more like a kid in an adults’ world, but yeah, let’s leave that for another post ;) Sooo, as I was saying, I would sport it with everything. I even wore it as a shirt with a black ribbon choker… yup, pretty much like everyone’s doing these days.

And here I am with a new one to which I’m just as much addicted. It’s from the brand Fidelity Denim (a Canadian brand), it’s made in the States (like everything else from the label – yeah! Sweatshop free!) and it feels like silk (I’m not kidding! It’s made out of tencel, which is the fabric version of heaven). One other thing that I love: it’s kind of boxy so it doesn’t fall in the soccer mom category but rather in the damn-yo-so-cool category. Well, that’s how I feel when I put it on.

So I decided to revisit a few of my favorite back-then looks and to experiment with very-today ones. All that to reconnect with my first fashion love: the jean jacket.

Pins are in. Denim too. 1+1=2.

Canadian brand. Canadian tuxedo. Duh.
