Chic Trends: Denim Jackets


Rihanna, Amber Rose and Chloe Sevigny in denim jackets

Once again everything old in fashion is new again. This Spring, the 1980s/1990s fashion staple, the denim jacket, is back in style.

When I was in the fifth grade I practically lived in a Calvin Klein denim outfit. I had the jeans, the jacket and an assortment of Calvin Klien tees to go with it. Everything was too big (I went through a baggy clothing phase for a few years), and the jacket is still probably two sizes too large for me. So, even though denim jackets back are in style, I would be committing a serious fashion crime if I wore it. If you’re going to rock a denim jacket this spring, make sure it fits well. It shouldn’t be too roomy, but you should be able to button it if you wanted to.

This season the denim jacket is a fabulous alternative to the other warm weather outerwear pieces (boyfriend blazer, the trench, or the leather jacket). When searching for ways to style your denim jacket, do the exact opposite of what I did in the fifth grade. Leave the “Canadian Tuxedo” in the 1990s (by this I mean do not wear the denim jacket with jeans). Take a lesson from Rihanna, Amber Rose, and Chloe Sevigny (pictured above) and pair a cropped denim jacket with a maxi dress/mini skirt/skinny pants and tee, roll up the sleeves, and pop the collar for a cool, casual look.
