Street Style: The Undeniable Denim Jacket

By Ann of Holier than Now

I’m always looking for an excuse to highlight the classic denim jacket – I think it’s gotten a bad rap in the past, but I’m personally always finding new ways to wear mine!

New York’s Fashion Week gave me the courage to add this old school basic to the “must have” list.

From chic ensembles on top executives to casual looks on models off duty, the basic came alive (and kept us alive … it was cold out there)!  Think of your denim jacket like a sweater or cardigan and you’ll instantly have a zillion fresh outfits.  Remember it when you’re dying to wear a lighter coat or cape and it’s still a bit too chilly … it’s a perfect layer, as shown above.

Sick of your current jacket?  Personalize it per above, or donate it and upgrade to a new cut.  Here are four new picks if you’re so inspired:


1. Blank Denim Slim Fit Jacket ($88)

2. J Brand Slim Fitted Denim Jacket ($229)

3. Hudson The Signature Jean Jacket ($251)

4. TEXTILE Elizabeth & James Embroidered Jean Jacket ($395)

    Oh, I can’t wait to start wearing my denim jacket. Let’s face it, it is the perfect jacket! Right now it’s a bit to cold here in Sweden (it’s snowing as I wright this) but in a few weeks (or months) I think it will be my new favorite jacket. Thanks for the inspiration – I (almost) forgot I had a denim jacket. I will use it a lot this spring/summer!
