B&W Loves: Denim Tops with a Twist

I’m no stranger to denim above the waist.  I spent my childhood in  sunflower printed  jean jackets and bedazzled denim vests from the Limited Too.  So when the Canadian tuxedo made a comeback (thank you hipsters) I thought ok, I got this one … but no.  The boxy bulk of the denim makes me look likes a truck driver named Marge who’s hobbies include billiards, Steelers football and Marlboro Reds.  Caitlin, on the other hand, dons denim jackets and vests  like no one’s business, its unfair, really.

That’s why I’m so happy to see chambray denim tops popping up in so many stores.  The light-weight material gives the look of denim, while allowing for a more feminine shape, and, this season, designers have upped the ante with patterned chambray and unexpected cuts.  Dress one up with a necklace and a sweater for the office or thrown it on on over leather leggings for a Sunday Funday (Caitlin, we’re due for one of those by the way…)  Try these on for size:
