Spring has officially sprung in Boston! With temperatures warming to the 50s, city dwellers can leave home in the morning without layers and layers of clothing just to stay remotely warm. So lighten up and layer less!
A great piece that can be worn in Boston’s current temperatures is a denim jacket. As seen on this week’s Fashionisto, the denim jacket is extremely versatile. It can be styled many different ways and also can be found in many shapes and forms. Different options include light wash, dark wash, contrasting sleeves and many more. Personalization knows no bounds when it comes to wearing jean jackets.
The blue jean jacket was originally created for functional purposes. It was meant to serve as a sturdy form of protection for mine workers. As we can see with this Fashionisto, interpretation and styling of the denim jacket has changed quite a bit with time. His outfit is a little more edgy and relaxed— definitely a 21st century take on the classic piece. The warmer weather allows him to throw on just a T-shirt, light scarf, comfy pants and combat boots. It all comes together to create a cohesive look.
Hint: If you’re tight on cash, or just don’t want to splurge on clothes, take a look at your local thrift store for a denim jacket. Most thrift stores have an abundance of them in different styles and washes. If you’re spending less on the jacket itself, you can spend a little more on DIY materials like studs, or buttons.
