Jean Jacket | Stripes & Tassels

Happy Monday from Helsinki, Finland! We spent the weekend in St. Petersburg (that’s not something I thought I’d ever say!), and it was absolutely unbelievable. Did you see my pics on Instagram or Facebook? I can’t wait to share more here once we return.

But this week I’ve got a fun new 5 Ways series for you, featuring an absolute closet staple…the jean jacket! No matter the season, it’s pretty much a given I’m either wearing one, or have it tucked in my bag. It’s not only the perfect light layer, but adds so much to an outfit.

I shared my adoration of these white jeans in this post, and the combo of stripes and a jean jacket make it so fresh for Spring and Summer. The fun tassel necklace and palm print bag ups the cuteness factor even more!

You could swap the shoes for wedges for a different look, but I’m partial to my sneakers.

Fit Tip: I’ve worn these sneakers non-stop for over a year, and they are still good as new. I do recommend sizing down 1/2 for a comfier fit.

This new monogrammed bag will be in heavy rotation this season…the green pairs perfectly with so many colors. Use code SUGARPLUM10 for 10% off your own order! (The eyeglass case and cosmetic bags make great graduation or Mother’s Day gifts!)

I own several jean jackets…one actually dates all the way back to high school! But they all have different washes and fits…this one is my favorite because  of the darker rinse, slightly cropped length, and fitted proportions. Jean jackets can add a little warmth when needed, but think of it more of a styled layer…so you want a close fit, not oversized like a coat.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS in the jacket.

Are you a jean jacket junkie, too? Hopefully this week’s series will inspire you to wear it with new combinations.

    I was in NYC this weekend and noticed how lots of women had jeans and sneakers (Nike running even!) but still managed to look super stylish. Your outfit is a great example of that. Have you done/thought of doing a style post on how to style jeans with sneakers. I would love to see you style with running sneakers. I have two boys, and we don’t stop! Converse are adorable but sometimes it just isn’t enough support. Thanks for all the fashion inspiration.

      I only have two styles of sneakers…Nikes for ‘workout’ type clothes, and Converse sneakers for jeans, shorts and skirts. But I’d totally wear my Nike’s with jeans, especially if you get a more streamlined shape (as opposed to the clunkier ones). But thanks for the post idea…I’ll add it to my list!! xo

    I’m so excited that you are doing a 5 Ways series on the jean jacket, especially since I already purchased the one you are wearing after seeing Mama Sugarplum in it in another post!
