It’s a myth that traveling light has to equal rolled-up sun dresses and whatever denim staples you can layer on when you get on the plane. A Pair & A Spare has demystified the “How To Pack!?” formula this season, working in a capsule wardrobe that includes your favorite denim jacket, chambray romper, and cut-off shorts (not to mention other must-have staples). Check out the full guide, and get packing!
Denim jackets are a year-round staple, but in the spring they take on a form we can’t get enough of. Pleats, dip-dye ombre, light chambray fabrications and destroyed texture are some of the variations you can find when the weather gets warm… but no one will blame you if you want to stick with a classic medium wash denim jacket either. We’ll take one of each.

4. RtA Jett Jacket 5. Club Monaco Vilma Bomber Jacket 6. UNIF Aidan Jacket

As the ice melts away and we greet spring (with huge, huge smiles, obviously), we’re all facing our closets with similar questions. It’s no easy task dressing for the in-between seasons, when it’s not warm enough to go bare legs, but not cold enough to wrap up in layers. Here’s one tip on pairing your favorites from both season into one great look, care of style blog Swellmayde, featured below.
This look includes a great medium wash denim jacket draped over a black floral dress (the color of the dress, or lack there of, makes it perfect for early spring), with a black leather bag and booties. Both of the accessories have a nice touch of metallic hardware, making this the ideal ensemble for between seasons. See more photos here.

Alessandra Ambrosio was recently seeing strolling through LA wearing a gorgeous front-slit floral skirt and a Bella Dahl Denim Bomber Jacket in “River” wash. We love the combination of a chambray jacket and a flowing, summery skirt. Some metallic arm candy and simple flat sandals round out the casual daytime look. You could also layer a swimsuit beneath rather than a tank, for a transitional daytime to beach look. What can we say? We’ve got summer fun on the brain.
Grab a Bella Dahl Denim Bomber Jacket and get the look!

Our favorite shoot from the latest CR Fashion Book is this one, featuring Sibui Nazarenko photographed by Billy Kidd. Can you guess why? The denim layering is dead-on for fall 2014, utilizing classic denim jackets (the kind everyone has in their closet) alongside cozy knits and cold-weather favorites. We might be summer-dreaming right now, but we’re already soaking up inspiration for fall.

3.1 Phillip Lim took tailored denim to a whole new level with a new capsule collection of denim separates. The set includes cropped jackets, tailored blazers, ankle-length pants, and a smart-looking denim pencil skirt to name a few. The styles are 12 in total and range from $195 to $895. The style of the shoot lets the denim shine in full, with the model’s face obscured by shades, cropped out, or turned away from the lens. For us, this is a refreshing return to what matters: our favorite textile.
