No idea where to start to look.

Of the sort that you could couple with a cotton print summer dress. And if that isn't your style, or you think it isn't a good look, then don't worry about it!

(not £££ please!)

hi i loved mine yrs back, plain levi one, in darkish blue but a bit worn.

i would love another one, but couldn't find one last year. Got a lovely one on ebay, but too big.

I'll help. What i remember last yr was they were way too short, am only 5ft 3 and pear shaped.

I'd like a slightly fitted, medium weight one not too light coloured. (ala Morten Harkett)

I was in Primark other day didn't see any. Everything has studs on it too.

must investigate.

What sort of colour/style do you like?

I quite like this one and it's not expensive

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 22-May-13 18:04:52

I would also like a slightly fitted medium weight, perhaps a darker colour though. No embellishments really

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 22-May-13 18:05:57

saymama - cross post! like that one but think it is a tad too short, but probably hard to tell without trying on

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 22-May-13 18:07:33

I quite like the classic levi one but it's not cheap. not too bad for lots of wear

piratecat Wed 22-May-13 18:07:35

that's why i trawled ebay for a more oldschool one, as the right colours came up, but you have to try them on they vary don't they.

piratecat Wed 22-May-13 18:09:40

i like the length of that one, but too all over colour iyswim. not helping here am i I need to find someting i can link to

I bought this one last week for exactly that purpose. It also comes in a lighter denim. It nips in really nicely at the waist over a summer dress.

I know M&Co is a bit mumsy, but I've had a few nice things from there recently. And p&p is free at the moment if you don't have a store nearby.

Has anyone tried the Next one on?

SayMama Wed 22-May-13 18:41:57

Think of it as an investment Bella grin

jemima that one is nice, what is the sizing like? I have big boobs and a small(er!) waist so I struggle with jackets!

JemimaMuddledUp Wed 22-May-13 18:49:31

I am an E cup and it fits fine.

Forever 21 (I wish)...

Hi not sure if your search is still ongoing, but tesco have a brilliant biker style denim jacket. You can see it on my blog here here and here really impressed with florence and fred recently and it was only £25. Good luck with your search.

TK Maxx. I have a DKNY cropped sleeve denim jacket I bought from there for £13 in the clearance section more than 10 years ago and I wear it all summer every year.

JennySense Sat 25-May-13 12:43:52

I got a classic Levi from Ebay as new for £20 a few months ago. Worth setting up a search there if you are not in a hurry.

Have a Gap one that is great (big boobs here, and it fits but is still slim on the arms and at the waist).

LivesInLegoland Sat 25-May-13 17:31:14

Matalan have one for £18. There's a dark denim one and a lighter one. It has a bit of stretch in it so is more comfortable than some I've tried. Generous sizing too.

LivesInLegoland Sat 25-May-13 17:32:45

Oh and I have big boobs (30FF) and a small waist too and my normal size is fine.
