So I have this Joe's Jeans brand navy corduroy jean jacket. It's the type of corduroy that has the super-fine wales that don't look like lines, but more like velveteen. The top stitching is navy, too, so it's not exactly jean jacket styling, but everything else about it is jean jacket styling.

So I have had it for a long time and haven't worn it. And I really want to bc it's a great jacket and I think I look good in navy.

I need some ideas of how I can wear it.

If it's something I don't already own, and it's pretty traightfwd, I can and will make it.

I automatically think of tans and browns. I also love gray with navy. How about khakis?

I have a navy military style blazer and I haven't worn it yet, but some dark gray or brown skinny pants are just screaming to be worn with it...and boots. I gotta have my boots

I wear my unique jackets with pencil skirts or dress pants. Because it's a more casual jacket, I wouldn't put a collared blouse under it (though I could see it looking great with a white mens' style dress shirt) but would wear it with a turtleneck or long-sleeve shell-type top. I'd wear navy with cream, red or brown. I'm not sure about grey - a deeper charcoal grey perhaps. Plum might be an interesting contrast. Black is possible.

I also wear jackets over simple dresses, like a shift dress, sheath dress, sweater dress, wrap dress. For that one, you could use the contrast of what sounds like a pretty "rugged" type jacket with a floral or patterned dress, or you could just go for a very simple solid dress in one of the above colours. I agree that boots would be a good match with the jacket - I like the idea of a dress and boots. Either knee-high boots or little booties.

You rang...


I would pair it with plum or burgundy in a heart beat. It would be good with slacks, skirts, and simple dresses.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I immediately thought of wearing it with straight/skinny jeans (a noticeably lighter/faded jean as compared to the jacket) and a white mens-style button down untucked. Depending on the occasion you could style it up with heels and a nice bracelet or earrings, or down with flats and minimal jewelery.

Based off something Amneris said, I also think it would be great as a "transition to spring" type of outfit. With a great floral or Spring/summer dress, and some boots.

Navy and black is a great combination these days, too, if the navy's not TOO close to black itself. I'd do skinny black pants with heels or boots and a flowy blouse in a print or any lighter color.

White, wide leg trousers - or a pencil skirt - with a simple white shirt, a navy bag and neutral heels. Tie a nautical themed scarf to the purse.

Great suggestions! And thank you so much for not going PC crazy and feminazi over the title...I just needed to be a lil rebellious today :P

So...about dresses and skirts: the jacket is made from a decently heavy weight fabric (corduroy) and has a bit of a nap. Woud you wear it w/ lightweight florals and sheaths? I have a badass white pencil skirt but it's lightweight and lined and I only wear it in the warmer months (w/ a fitted chambray jacket w/ white topstitching, and chunky platform nude sandals...slightly nautical). You don't think a white pencil skirtwould be too summery for a navy cordy/nappy jean jacket?

Do you have a pic? Is it cut like a blazer or boxy like a jean jacket?

My first thought was a simple maxi dress or maxi skirt. Gray or dark purple.

So many great ideas. I admit, I never would have thought of white pants or a white skirt...but I love that. I used to have greige jeans years ago and now i want another pair!

I also love navy w/ light gray (good pic above from scrils!) and someone suggested mocha (a cool example of that from the top collage I posted). I also have a few orange/tangerine/terra cotta sweaters I think look good w/ navy...but am getting tripped up on what bottoms I could wear.

I like Amneris' idea of mixing it up w/ a sheath dress.

And Po's idea of purpe ( i don't have any maxi skirts...but am thinking of making myself some maxi pants LOL)

I wish I had something floral like WhoMe said, but I don't.

I have a navy & white horizontal striped top exactly like what scrills posted. Love that!

And I love how Nicole Richie styled hers w/ a black dress and strappy heels.

I have regular denim jean jackets and I always know what to wear w/ them. And this Joe's jacket doesn't look much different...I guess the fact it's blue velveteen instead of blue denim is throwing me.

Yay for shabby chic dressing!

If spiderlashes does not mind, may I post a fashion question? I have a pair of dark wash wide leg jeans. I really don't know what to wear with them but I really want to wear them at least one time. They have been sitting in my closet for more than a wear. I have a white fitted t and thought maybe a blazer or 3/4 sleeve cardigan. Do I wear flats or are these to be worn with heels? I don't have many heels except for wedges. Please help the clueless.
I thought this thread was about horses wearing clothes, and some how they were dressing scandalous which is why you put the word hoe. I'm so confused. I read the thread but I still can't get past the title, where is the fashion horse??
Sairoo, the wedges would work great with wide leg jeans. Basically, you want to balance the shape of the leg: something chunky and with some height to balance the wide leg. Flats would look dumpy and heels that are thin would look spindly.

I've always read (and from WNTW) seen advice that wide leg anything looks great with wedges.

Hope that helps!

IMO, if you are wearing heels, they should be a chunkier style. But flats work well, too. Depends on length...and to some extent on how loose they are (ie, if they are really loose all over and casual, flats would probably be better).
