Over the past few years, this has quickly become the layer for every cool guy and cool gal out there. Okay lets be real – the favorite layer of just about everyone, cool or not. Its one of the easiest things to grab out of your closet and can add the right layer to just about any outfit. Patricio and I are fiercely committed to these layers, and while they’re from different companies, you can find a good denim jacket at just about any one of your favorite stores.
So what makes for a good denim jacket? A few things – Denim quality, fit, details and quality to name a few. Some people love a super fitted, cropped layer, while others gravitate towards an oversized take on this classic. Madewell is a retailer who is a pro at doing both (and you can even get them monogrammed). Gap, Lucky and Zara are other hot spots to get well-made denim jackets, but the holy grail (especially for Patricio) is Levis. Levis is the holy grail when it comes to denim – and their denim jackets do not lack personality, quality and above all ‘the cool factor’. They have exclusive and vintage pieces you can only find with them, and they’re so unique that Patricio has a total of three Levi’s denim jackets in his closet.
Denim jackets are a necessity when it comes to the perfect topper. They’re great over dresses and skirts, and a pair of joggers and a button up if you’re keeping it casual on Sundays. We both are Denim Jacket aficionados and wouldn’t want a life where we didn’t have one in our closet. And the best part of a denim jacket is – the more you wear it, the more it becomes your own. (In fact we talked about Patricio’s vintage Wrangler Jacket he bought in the presence of Jenna Lyons that he is going to make into a map of all the places he goes).
