Closet Essential: Denim Jackets

THE DENIM DECISION

Nowadays, denim is soaring to universal styling heights by giving us various ways to update our closets. Adapting denim to my wardrobe has made those indecisive moments on what to wear so much easier. The convenience of this traditional fabric is an outfit booster for errand running, date night or brunch with the girls.

While I enjoy venturing into 80-90s retro fashionable trends, I’m an eclectic person who likes to remain modern with my look. Discovering how denim jackets collaborates gently with everything in my closet is an exhale of relief. Although I cannot afford every denim jacket I see, I still like to look at the pieces and become fully inspired.

I really like denim outerwear because it provides everlasting opportunities to unforgettable style.

Transform your outerwear into something new, contemporary and eye-catching. Denim jackets are a classic wardrobe item and with a little personality, you can make it iconic. Adding floral appliques, trendy phrasing or the embellishment with studs and rhinestones forms an explicit Rockstar statement piece.

Deconstructive creates balance & structure

Ripped denim is a custom trend for the millennials, creating an ambiance of youth and nonchalance. Reminiscent of the 80s acid wash jeans, distressed jackets add character to the β€œeveryday wear”. Build a signature look by destroying the original piece and create a new stylish jacket.

As a fashion enthusiast, I find myself researching tons of styles for fashion inspiration. Most of the looks I’m fascinated by are from high-end designers such as Alexander Wang, Roberto Cavalli, Balenciaga, Balmain, Saint Laurent or Alexander McQueen. Although some of the couture designers are out of my pocket book, I still use their collections to influence my look.

If you see a denim jacket out of your price range, don’t get discouraged or shy away from feeling like it’s impossible to own in your closet.

Get creative. Take an inexpensive denim jacket from stores like Forever 21, H&M, Rue 21, Agaci, Charlotte Russe or a thrift store and go crazy.

Use the styles from high-end designers as a template and design your own fashionable outerwear. Several ways to change your jacket from ordinary to original include:

  • adding lace trimmings
  • chop it for a cropped look
  • screen print photos on the back
  • spray paint it for a graffiti look
  • embroider with floral or paisley appliques
  • embellish with rhinestones or emoji patches

Fashion is a form of expression with a chance to explore styles and unleash your fashion potential, I hope you are encouraged to add denim jackets to your wardrobe regardless the price or brand.
