The jean jacket first made an appearance in my wardrobe back in middle school. I opted for a roomy 80s fit in a medium wash from j.crew (note this was when the brand was an ll bean competitor, before the lyons redesign).
Recently, I noticed my sister getting more use out of jacket then I was, so I decided to pass the torch. I gleefully hopped aboard the chambray shirt bandwagon but something was still missing. So I turned to Levi's for the classic dark wash, fitted and feminine take on the jacket. It arrived today and even has inner pockets for protecting valuables! Who needs a purse? I've reasoned that it works equally well with my black shift dress and white jeans.
In the fall I plan to layer it up with my peacoat and cashmere. This is a comeback I can get behind.
