Purse: Vintage Coach gifted by MIL (recent version HERE)
I recently got this Gap girls denim jacket for only $13.99. I usually wear a size 10/12 in girls but ordered a size large and XL to compare. The XL ended up working the best. The large could work for someone with a smaller chest. I could hardly button it up and the arms were a bit tight. I’ve been wanting a jean jacket but every one that I tried on was too big. I wanted something fitted and most importantly, the arms had to be slim and not too long. All the women’s jean jackets I have tried, the arms were always too wide and long.
Measurements: shoulder to shoulder – 12.5″, armpit to armpit is 15.5″, sleeve length – 21.5″, total length – 16.5″
The sleeves are nice and narrow and length fits me perfectly. The shoulders and torso fit me well (as a reference – I’m 5′ tall) I wanted a bit of a lighter wash but the color ended up working out.
Some other good options if you are looking for a denim jacket is this one from Forever 21 or this one at American Eagle. I was tempted to order this one since it came in XXS but the price was still too much. I believe it’s a junior’s brand so it will definitely run smaller than a regular woman’s denim jacket.
The only thing I didn’t like about this girls denim jacket are the two front chest pockets. They are placed a bit higher than the women’s. I’m not sure how much this will bother me but wanted to point it out.
Do you own a denim jacket and which brands do you recommend?
