I have decided to start this thing every week called Weekly Wednesday Essentials. It's where, every week, I'll share with you an item that I believe is a staple item in your closet. In case you don't know what a staple item is in this case, it means a necessity, basically. For the first week, the Weekly Wednesday Essential is the denim jacket. The denim jacket has been rising in popularity this spring, and it can go with a lot of outfits! Just not jeans, that's too much denim in one outfit. But if you wear it with a dress or some colorful pants or a skirt it will look great. For example, for this outfit I paired the jacket with some teal pants and a navy shirt with flip flops with the same colors in it.
Denim jackets can be worn for many events. It has the rare quality of being casual and nice at the same time, if you wear it the right way. Of course, you wouldn't wear a denim jacket to a very nice restaurant or to the pool, but you can wear it to the mall, a party, hanging out, maybe a dance, school (if it's allowed) or just out and about.
This is why I think it's an important item to have in your closet, and if you don't own one, go buy one RIGHT NOW! I got mine from Aeropostale for my birthday, but you can get denim jackets at many places. Macy's, H & M, American Eagle, Forever 21, Old Navy, Gap, the places you can get them are endless. And they're not that much money - some come as low as even $23.99! It will be a small price to pay for all the use you get out of it and how much you'll love it. Maybe with summer coming up it's you don't want to get it, but definitely get it once summer's over and fall approaches.
Should I continue the Weekly Wednesday Essentials?
