Comfort aside, we love denim for its versatility—but it’s not all about jeans. In fact, we just happened upon an affordable styling wonder in the form of a minimalist, structured, elegant denim jacket. That’s right, this $70 topper in a clean, dark wash is a major steal. Although billed as a shirt, we plan to use the belted design as a layering piece over tees, sweaters and blouses. Its substantial shape and fabric allow you to don it as outerwear, yet it’s light enough to wear under a coat when the next winter storm rolls in. Shop our chic, wallet-friendly find of the week, ahead.
Consider it a shirt-jacket hybrid—this sleek, rigid denim button-down is a layering masterpiece.
Belt the topper over a playful rainbow-striped knit. Black cigarette trousers and a structured ring-handle tote keep it professional for the office. Adorable pastel sling-backs are a youthful-but-appropriate finish.
