Denim jacket over dress

Recommended Posts

Would a classic denim jacket  (no rips, frays) over a dress be appropriate for the MDR on a Holland America voyage to Alaska? Not for formal night, just a regular evening. I would probably add a vintage rhinestone brooch or two, but it’s still denim.

I'm curious why you would want to wear it.  Are you thinking you'll be cold?

I’m always cold, and I favor the style.

I love the way that looks. I also love a white denim jacket over a dress for a change. Go for it!

Quite trendy! As if I knew anything about trends...

Go for it!   I have to say, that is what I do.  My last "dressy" event (a year ago June), I wore a long navy tank dress ( I still can't believe I paid $200 for something I've still only worn once) and my classic denim jacket from The Gap.  I did put a brooch that I friend made for me and I wore the crystal necklace and earrings I bought in Rome.   The next day, I wore that jacket with my jeans and a T-shirt.   A few years ago, when I did a trip with friends to Cinque Terre, Florence, Barcelona and Paris, that was my only jacket and I wore it everywhere - Jeans, T-shirt and a classy scarf around the neck was what I wore and it seemed like so many others out and about were the same.  Those jean jackets are the most multifunctional pieces around!

I feel the same way about my white linen jacket. Perfect for summer, when denim is to hot.

Denim is pretty widely accepted on most cruises these days, be it jeans or whatever.

Yeap, why not. A little black casual dress and a tight short denim jacket would look cool too!

Absolutely; you can dress it up or down, depending on what you're wearing it with!

 

Smooth Sailing!  🙂🙂🙂
