We love the idea of an oversize denim jacket (casual! effortless! timeless!), but we don’t love the idea of adding bulk up top.
But wait—before you confine yourself to slim-fit toppers, consider this super-easy way to make a bulkier jean jacket work.
The trick is twofold: First, wear it over a shirt tucked into high-waist bottoms. Then, push the sleeves up above your elbows.
Why? We’re glad you asked. The tucked-in top and high-waist bottoms nip you in at the waist, while the jacket itself draws the eye downward. Meanwhile, the pushed-up sleeves highlight your forearms, which, it’s worth noting, are two of your skinniest body parts.
