Blue Notes

Forget the same-olds in your closet. With fur, pleats, and endless details in the mix, there's now a jean jacket to match every mood.


When talk-show trendster Star Jones added mink to her jean jacket last winter, the bill came to $20,000; this season, cozy, furry denim can be yours for far less. Whether you're into faux-fur trim, intricate stitching, or pleats, you'll find them here.

H&M's denim jacket with brown faux- fur trim and bronze buttons ($49) has a slimming, slightly tapered waist. Faux shearling adds style and warmth to the Gap's "dirty" version ($88) and the cropped, aptly named "coquette" jacket from Guess? Jeans ($128). For work, try a sleek three-quarter-length trench from DKNY Jeans ($118) with a soft faux-fur collar and cinched belt -- it's so lightweight and well-worn it feels like you've already had it forever. For wilder types, Kenneth Cole offers a sharp biker-inspired jacket ($128) with pleated sleeves and extra zippers -- and the front pockets are perfect for stashing the keys to your Harley.
