As the temperatures begin to rise, statement outerwear tends to recede into the background. Fortunately, fashion-forward celebrities are already coming up with directional new takes on the ultimate spring layering piece: the denim jacket. Gigi Hadid wore an oversize shredded version at Paris Fashion Week, paired with matching frayed-hem jeans.

And Hailey Baldwin followed suit with a heavily embellished version in Los Angeles.

The $9660 Jonathan Simkhai design comes covered with tonal sequins applied in a bandana-like swirl. Hailey offset the boxy silhouette with Simkhai’s cropped bustier, which highlighted her midriff in a subtle, sexy way. The silk cuff detail at the sleeves mirrored the sheen on her top, enhancing its lingerie-inspired feel.

Hailey opted rightly to pair this overwhelming jacket with a laid back pair of simple light blue wash jeans from Frame, Le Original, and matching Schutz leather pumps with a pointed toe—a detail.

Well, if you’d rather take a long beach vacation and not spend the almost $10.000 on a mere denim jacket, you can find some cute ones for much less from Marc Jacobs and from Alice + Olivia, AND still have your vacation!
