Jeans Jackets Are Not Only for Cowboys and Western

Denim is not only the model off duty look but denim jackets have taken over street style in 2017. 

Denim jackets are essential pieces in our wardrobe these days. Whether they are oversized from Balenciaga or cropped by Topshop and Miu Miu, they are a staple item that can be found in many closets.

This season denim jackets are going above and beyond with animal embroidery by Gucci. They are also revisiting original looks by Levi and J Brand. 

A more affordable version to the denim jacket of Balenciaga would be the authentic trucker jacket by Levi. Maison Margiela shows the convertible distressed denim jacket and La Redoute gives you a dark blue version. Topshop is also a more affordable, yet stylish version – fitted western bleach wash. 

J Brand is showing off its Harlow denim jacket. Bershka is another fabulously affordable contender when it comes to oversized denim jackets. If you prefer a more standout piece, McQeen is having a patchwork-frayed denim jacket in its current collection. 

Denim jackets are versatile and look great regardless of your budget. The classic feel and true wash can be easily upgraded with colorful patches. Currently, the Levi jacket is undergoing a major fashion revival. It has been upgraded with a zipper in front and slanted pockets for a subtle twist. 

GAP is still selling its iconic 1969 denim jacket. A complete timeless piece that comes in different sizes. The Topshop Moto jacket is a cropped boxy style version of the denim jacket. It fits closely to your body because the fabric is a bit heavier than other jackets. 

Gucci and other labels have transformed the plain denim jacket by adding big floral or tiger embroideries on the back. These versions have also become more popular with other brands. Nonetheless, this style definitely stands out  and is perfect for those who want to make such a bold appearance. Boho versions of denim jackets with ruffles or fringes have also been spotted at festivals like Coachella.

What’s next? Boyfriend jeans inspiration, of course. This style of jeans has upped the jacket game and created the boyfriend denim jacket look. Oversized jackets are a major trend this year. This jacket style is rebellious and is something new for many labels. This stays true to fashion in the sense that style will not always be polished, but rather more modern and unrefined. Millennials love working out of the office or in less traditional surroundings. Wearing this version of the denim jacket is their perfect work statement piece. 

Several well known fashion bloggers have already begun posting images of their boyfriend denim jackets. Sincerely Jules, Nicolette mason and Caro Daur, have all “snapped” themselves in this denim style.
