The little denim jacket

Acne cropped denim jacket / T by Alexander Wang linen tee / MiH jeans / Karen Walker coat / Isabel Marant heels

I have become a big fan of wearing a little denim jacket under my coats this winter.  I've got an array of coats, yet I get in moods where I find myself reaching for a few of the same time and time again.  Without something interesting to break things up, you could be mistaken for thinking that I'm wearing the same outfit repeatedly.  What I discovered, is that denim contrasted with coats really enhances the look and ends up looking pretty cool.  That and I get rather cold.  Melbourne has some pretty severe heating indoors so the extra layer adds a practical element.  It's not just all 'trend'. 


  1. Really like the idea of layering a denim jacket under a thick winter coat to stay warm! :) Hope it helps you stay warm in the cold Melbourne winter! :) Your shoes are amazing too.

  2. Oh I remember doing that with my denim jacket and layering it under my coats - like you say, practical but provides interest. I've not done it for so long though as I no longer think I suit denim jackets. But I did drag it out recently and gave it a dust off. Might be time to resurrect and readjust the mindset. Lovely combination. Love the coat ... a lot. Have a good weekend Mandi!

  3. I love the look too - tried to do something similar but the denim jacket I got was a little too boyfriend in style. LOVE the IM pumps by the way. Stunning x

  4. I love your coat! great color :)

  5. I do this too, but usually with one of my many black jackets. Love how the denim looks with that gorgeous yellow, will definitely keep in mind looking for more colour in the future :)

  9. Love pairing denim under coats, it's a nice departure from your usual jumper or blazer. The yellow and blue look great together. Love the last shot!
