Accessories Report

Let’s flash back to 2001 when I was in the fifth grade. I remember my mother brought home this jean jacket with a–what she thought–matching jean skirt. I pulled the pieces out of the shopping bag and thought to myself, “Does my mother notice that the jean of the skirt and the jean of the jacket are not the same?” Although I didn’t like it, to appease my mother, I wore that outfit to school the next day.

Here in 2013, this Fashionista successfully puts together an outfit that combines two different washes of jean. Her ensemble meshes together all the colors from her sweater, her neutral footwear and two-tone jean dress and vest very well.

This outfit is warm for the winter months without even incorporating a jacket! This Fashionista’s style speaks of comfort and coziness, while adding a sense of edginess and an element of contrast with the two-toned jean dress and vest. Anyone can accent their outfit choices with a little bit of jean. If you’re looking to create a look like this Fashionista’s, vests are your go-to item. Maybe pair a chambray shirt with a printed legging or pant, if this is more of a look you prefer.

Jean jackets, vests and shirts are such easy items to wear. They are great for Fashionistas who want to contrast a bright, bold statement piece in their outfit, or for those who just want to stay warm in this cold weather and look great while doing it.

Spotted: Jean pieces were spotted on the models in Donna Karen’s DKNY spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection.
