Photo by Splash NewsReese Witherspoon is simply the queen of casual wear. Just about any time she's caught out and about, she looks fabulous.
Best of all, her style is easy to imitate. Check out the way she recently turned a simple summer dress into an on-trend ensemble with the addition of one wardrobe staple:
The denim jacket.
If you don't have one already, fear not. They're easy to find and totally affordable! Here are a few of my faves ...
This Washed Denim Jacket ($69.50, Gap) has a nice fit and a relaxed feel. It would definitely add some edge to a floral dress.
This AE Classic Denim Jacket ($39.95) is perhaps the best bet for your money. It's on clearance right now, girls! Go, go, go!
For a more sophisticated look, how about this dark wash Diesel Denim Jacket ($147, Bluefly.com)?
Super-short on cash? Check out this Women's Cropped Denim Jacket (Old Navy, $28.99). Get the look for less!
And finally, for those of us in warmer climes, the denim cut-off vest has emerged as an equally stylish alternative to the jacket. I really love it over a t-shirt and khaki rolled-up shorts or crop pants. I've just added this Adelaide Denim Cut-Off Vest (LuckyBrand.com, $59.50) to my wish list!
Rockin' My (Really Inexpensive) Denim Jacket
If you have a denim jacket, dig it out of your closet if you haven't already! I bought this denim jacket several years ago -- I think it was $20! I wore it a few weeks ago at the Flicka 2 premiere here in Nashville and I've worn it several times since. (And yes, that's a side braid. My favorite mom-friendly hair trend of the season.)
What do you think of the denim jacket trend?
