Get Coated

Move over, leather! Coated denim is taking over! This fall coated denim is swarming the runways and department stores everywhere. Initially, coated denim only came in black, but now crimsons and red hues are being seen from several designers, such as J Brand. This twist on an American classic is easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. Pair it with a cute screen tee, like I did here, and a simple jacket for a rock-n-roll look. Or if you want a toned-down look, do an oversized sweater or loose cardigan and a simple top. 

In my experience, many women express their apprehensions about coated denim, saying that they are "too old" or "not cool enough." But once I get them into a pair of coated denim, they don't want to take it off! Mostly because it still fits the same way as your typical jean, but is trendy and stylish. Believe it or not, coated denim has the same stretchy and comfy qualities as a regular denim. The only difference is that the jean is treated with a special pigment; this pigment gives the denim a waxy finish that resembles leather, but maintains its stretchy denim feel. 

It is a must-have for the season!
