Denim jackets have always been around; sometimes they are an essential piece while other times they are more of a unique piece you can add to a look. Honestly, right when denim jackets were making a comeback, I went everywhere to find a unique one. I was looking for one a little oversize and retro, but I wasn’t lucky enough. I literally looked in every single store and tried every single piece but I just couldn’t find what I was looking for.
A few months later, my oldest sister was cleaning up her closet and she had two big plastic bags sitting outside of her room full of clothes she was going to giveaway. She asked me to look inside and see if there was something I wanted to keep and so I did. I opened up one of the bags and I found this vintage denim jacket that she wouldn’t take off back in the ’90s. You cannot believe how happy I was when I found it because it was exactly what I was dreaming of. Plus, it fit perfectly and from that moment on, there is no outfit of mine that doesn’t include my all-time-favorite denim jacket.
Some of my friends were crazy about it too and looked online for my jacket thinking it was brand new, but when I told them the story, they were so disappointed.
I remember being 10 or 11 years old when I was “rocking” the denim jacket trend for the first time, but the trend faded. So now that I’m officially living in this trend, I try to wear it all the time in different and fun ways.
I have even worn it with fancy outfits at night; this sounds risky, but somehow gives my outfit an edgy vibe and I like that. Also, it has been great during this summer when it gets a little chilly at night and obviously it is going to be my go-to piece for the fall.
Even though this is my favorite denim jacket, I have found more favorites. Some skinnier and with a different tone of blue, which has helped to have a million more options to pair it with. This has also given me the chance to add patches and pins to them. Denim jackets are such a fun and huge trend and I’m so glad they are here to stay.
