Fashion Q & A:
Sport Jackets and Jeans

Q: Is the sport-jacket-and-jeans look on its way out or in?

A: It came and went and is now back again! The key to the look this time around is to be sure each component is casual and connected to the other. Opt for a blazer that is rugged as opposed to one that looks like it was borrowed from a suit. A crisp, dark wash jean looks sharp with a blazer and button down for casual Friday.

Go with boots or shoes with a bit of an edge and shirts and sweaters that are less conservative than what you might pair with suiting.

Last word: Don't even think about a navy blue blazer with gold buttons paired with jeans!
