Cropped/Short denim jacket

Have any of you or your DDs seen/bought a nice light denim or better still cream denim jacket recently?

For DD1(15), women shaped sized 12 not a stick thin teen. To use as a cardigan over summer dresses, so passably smart not distressed to the point of having stains and holes.

I'm sure one of you has seen a nice denim jacket.

She keeps pinching my cardigan, she needs a jacket.

h&m, zara, warehouse, new look and oasis all have them. Depends how tall she is as to which is the best fit.

5'6" ish with hips, so she'll have to try them on, as I think she wants short enough not to reach her hips.

(I know from personal experience that, smallish boobs and big hips can make jacket buying hell. I tried in a 100 navy blazers in Next's sale and didn't buy one).

I have one by Cheap Monday from a few years ago, and a vintage Levi's one from Rokit. The Rokit website is definitely worth a look if you are outside London.

blush I just got my Levi's one out and realised it is cropped because it is a children's jacket, I am 25 blush

Got a lovely slightly cropped vintage type wash denim in h and m. Also seen a nice one (was too big on my narrow shoulders) in Debenhams - Henry Holland one.

Primark have a quite nice military khaki fitted short length jacket at the moment too
