There's nothing like a taking a basic staple that you love and having the opportunity to take to new heights (both literally and metaphorically). So, after having the chance to do just that with the classic denim jacket, we simply can't help but rave about our Who What Wear collection Ruffle Light Wash Denim Jacket ($40), which has not only become the new go-to for everyone in our office, but it has also caused quite the stir on Instagram, thanks to its eye-catching details—not that we're surprised. As such, as we've done with some of our other favorite pieces from the collection, today we're giving you an exclusive behind-the-seams look at the inspiration for the piece, straight from our co-founders, Hillary and Katherine, as well as a look at how some of our favorite readers have been wearing it, posting in it, and racking up likes.

On their inspiration for the jacket:
"The Ruffle Denim Jacket is one of our favorite outerwear pieces we've created—and considering how much we love the trench coats, trench vest, and faux-fur coat we've done in seasons past, that's really saying something. It's slightly oversize, which makes it perfect for draping over your shoulders, and the medium blue denim is super versatile, and it's the ideal color for styling with spring and summer color and prints. The ruffle is a subtle, feminine detail that makes this piece really stand out from the sea of denim jackets out there." — Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power
