How Should a Denim Jacket Fit on a Woman?

 

The exact fit of a jacket depends on your comfort level, but generally speaking, you want one that fits comfortably on the shoulders. You want the jacket to be fitted but not too tight. And you want to be able to move around in it so you’re likely looking for a stretchier material.

 

 

How to Soften Denim Jacket Before Traveling

 

A brand new piece of denim will soften out as you wash and wear it. One thing to consider is that some cheap jean jackets for women can not only fit poorly but may not break in the easiest.

If you want to speed up getting your soft jean jacket, try using a fabric softener in the wash with it. But you’ll want to be careful to pay attention to your clothing’s washing instructions because the color can fade.

Some readers have heard that you can use vinegar instead of a fabric softener to speed up the process in your next wash, but we haven’t tried it out so use at your own risk!

 

 

What to Wear With Denim Jacket

 

Denim is versatile and universal. With cute and cool denim jackets you can pair with leggings or shorts for a more casual look. Or you can pair it with a fancier dress and a pair of flats or wedges for a night out on the town.

 

Pair it with one of these summer dresses!

 

 

Where to Get a Jean Jacket for Travel?

 

You can get jean style jackets almost anywhere. We have collected choices from Target, Amazon and other great retailers. Nordstrom denim jackets are also an excellent choice!
