What is life without denim? One of the most iconic moments in fashion history was brought to us by our favorite ’90s couple, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Remember their denim on denim greatness? This twill textile is such a protagonist in our lives. I, honestly, can’t remember the last time I went an entire week without wearing it.
Denim jackets are timeless. No matter how many years pass, they will still be in style and most definitely a must-have in your closet. The oversized jean jacket, also known as the boyfriend jean jacket, was a reoccurring item at Fashion Week. Stella McCartney, Kenzo and Fendi incorporated this trend into their spring/summer 2015 collections, confirming that the boyfriend jean jacket is everything right now. Actually, you can’t go wrong with anything that includes the word boyfriend in its name this season (exclusively limited to all things related to fashion).
There is currently a huge, masculine influence in women’s fashion. Maybe it has to do with the fact that there is nothing more comfortable than wearing your boyfriend’s clothing or maybe it’s the empowerment factor. Either way, this masculine, androgynous impact on fashion is definitely something you want to be a part of. I mean, let’s be honest, Ruby Rose’s androgynous look has us all feeling some type of way.
However, let’s not get sidetracked and let’s focus on the star of today’s show, the boyfriend denim jacket. This Fashionista really knows what she’s doing. Not only does she have a denim jacket, but she is also a devoted coat slinger. What is this you may ask? You might have seen this new way of wearing coats where you don’t actually wear it, you simply sling your jacket on your shoulders and (voilà) you look like you just came out of an issue of Vogue. She paired her jacket with a daytime version of the LBD, a striped T-shirt dress, creating great cohesion between the two pieces. One of my favorite parts of this outfit is the layered necklaces; one of them is probably the cutest choker I have ever seen. Finally, to conclude this perfectly clean look, she went for some black, leather slip-on shoes. As Queen Bey would say, flawless.
How To: Wearing an oversized denim jacket is pretty effortless since it goes with pretty much any casual look. You can easily add it to your favorite outfit! Just remember to accessorize and, if you’d like, even sling it!
