Denim jackets have always been a wardrobe staple for me. Last summer, this tie dye one was my favorite. And I totally rocked a totally classic style on my trip to Italy. My new favorite way to wear a denim jacket is this cute short sleeve denim jacket. It is the perfect layering piece for summer and early fall.
I’m so in love with this jacket because it works so well over dresses but also looks cute with jeans or even shorts. I’ve seen some girls wear them almost like a cropped top with nothing underneath. This is a little too revealing for my style, but I do think it looks cute.
I chose to style mine really simply with a cute little back t-shirt dress. It has a draw waist to really accentuate my shape. I also love that the jacket is cropped because cropped jackets hit right above the waist to create that hourglass shape. Since the outfit is pretty boring, I added some metallic sandals and a bright and boldly shaped little red bag.
This is such a simple look but I think it works so well for casual summer days. Most days, you’ll find me in an easy cotton dress like this. I try to find one that has a bit more detail, which is why I love this one. It has a little patch pocket at the chest and the drawstring helps to accentuate my waist. This short sleeve denim jacket is the perfect topper because it makes the outfit a bit more interesting and also adds some warmth for cooler LA days.
If you’re looking for a short sleeve denim jacket for yourself, here are some of my favorites under $50.
