Van Dam is it? Is it ever appropriate for an adult woman to wear a sleeveless denim jacket?

You've asked two questions, the answer to the thread title: NO and the answer to the post: NO. grin Walk away from the sleeveless denim jacket <shudder>

I thought that might be the case but I needed to put it out there to shame myself out of danger.

No and no grin

It's a no from me. To both questions.

I saw one in Hollister on the weekend. (I was getting a birthday present for DD2.) I was tempted.

No and no.

I saw a woman wearing one last weekend and my first thought was of that advert.

It's a YES from me! Over a plain grey or black maxidress and sandals.

That was the sort of look I was thinking of yoni, but I think I will feel dated if I do it. I was just wondering what I could do as a casual cover up, but I'm a child of the 80's and have to be careful not to hark back to my era in a bad way!
