I received one as a gift. If I have ever had one before, it was so many centuries ago that I don't recall it, and the things are so ubiquitous that I have not really paid attention to what looks good and bad with them. I am more of a cardigan person, so I find that I am completely clueless with my jean jacket, and stand bewildered, holding the jacket at arm's length and gazing at it with furrowed brow.:wondering Clearly, I am in serious need of the expertise of my sisters here. It is what I guess is the classic style, with the 4 pockets in front, the brand is Calvin Klein, if that will give you a mental image of it. It is blue, medium wash. So, jean jacket owners, with what do you wear - and never wear - your jean jacket? And what are your views on collarhood? I don't wear collars as a rule, in fact, I think this is the only garment I own that has one. I tried turning it up, but our (Exceptionally Intelligent and Advanced) godson thinks that looks just a bit too runway, but he does not see what to me is a huge difference between collar tucked in, and collar worn normally, which makes me think his eye may still have some refining to do. Also, at nine, I think he may be coming from a strong elementary school influence, and collar up might not be too runway for me? If it helps, I am 5'2" and a fraction, straight black hair, layers, right above shoulder, messy, weight fluctuates between 125 and well, more than that. I am in the process of shedding some pounds gained during a Terrible Cold situation that developed some issues. Anyway, back to the jacket. With what do I wear it? I'm not crazy about the idea of denim and denim, but I'm not sure if my instinct is right, or if that is an idiosyncrasy I need to just get over. I have pants in every neutral, many are jeans, those that are blue are dark, and there is one pair that is a bit lighter than medium but stops short of the pallid Swamp Region Roller Rink wash. And there is a respectably varied assortment of available tops to wear under it. And bling. I'm sure there must be rules about jean jackets and bling. In fact, I'm sure there are established rules for every aspect of jeanjacketwearingology, and that some can be broken, and others not, but I have no idea what they are. I am very grateful for your help in this matter.
