THE FORECAST: Sunny summer day, 27°C, but dropping to 19°C in the evening
THE OCCASION: Walking home after a fireworks show
THE JACKET: Boxy dark denim jacket
Denim jackets are my favourite warm-weather coverup because they're versatile and tough-wearing. They can be surprisingly pricey, though. I got this one on sale at Saks Off Fifth. Truth be told, I still find myself lusting after the one that got away: a faded denim beauty that fit like a glove and cost four times as much as this one. I guess it's lucky I forgot where I'd tried it on! I love the look of rugged denim jackets with feminine pieces, like silk sundresses or coloured denim and floaty tanks. No need to worry about colour matching: denim acts as a neutral and goes with anything!
