JEANS ON TOP
A jean shirt is one of just 9 key pieces in my new Simple Summer Capsule Wardrobe. Get the other 8 and a style guide on how to put them all together HERE. A jean shirt is your shortcut to styling just about any summer outfit. I love styling mine backward and cropped over a dress or long a loose as a swimsuit cover-up.
Get the Look
High-low styling with a Valentino bag on sale and designer-inspired sandals.
Finding this Kayla style from the Nordstrom 6 January Drop in stock is hard. Its sleeves are easy to style for summer because it has three different sleeve lengths. Besides a cover-up you can wear also wear an oversized jean shirt unbuttoned over bike shorts and a tank or straight-leg white jeans.
DENIM JACKETS IN SUMMER
A jean jacket makes my New Wardrobe Checklist and is one of the most versatile layering pieces for any aesthetic. If you already own a classic jean jacket shake up your summer outfits with a fun new shape or color.
White Jean Jackets
Hardware choices to match your style. I love my white Fidelity jacket with rose gold buttons.
Cropped or Oversized

JEAN DRESS FOR SUCCESS
This summer there are so many jean dress styles to pick from. A jean shirtdress has the most styling opportunities for different body types. Give shape or define your waist with a thin belt. A denim vest will also add shape and interest, without bulk.

High-rise tapered-leg jeans are trending. I’m so excited about this trend I’m placing it at the heart of my next capsule wardrobe. I know it can be hard to find the perfect fit and style them, so I’m doing all of that for you by adding the best to Jen’s Jean Shop. The secret is selecting a style with a rise that stops at or above your belly button. If you want your jeans to fit and flatter you have to know your rise.
How to Measure Your Rise?
Measure from the center crotch seam (on a fitted pair of pants) to your belly button.
