Denim jackets usually enter our lives during adolescence. We get them from oversaturated vintage shops under the guise of individuality and off the highstreet during a first attempt at creating a ‘capsule wardrobe’. Either way, after this moment, they tend to stay with us for life. While we may go whole years without even thinking to wear one, we can never quite bring ourselves to be rid of them. Since denim jackets only seem to look better with age, this is completely logical. But maybe now - with the wisdom of experience - it might be time to invest in a new one for this purpose. One that you truly want to commit to as opposed to one you simply buy on a whim, you know?
Of course, the established classic when it comes to denim jackets is a Levi’s trucker. These are probably the denim jackets that flashed in your mind when you started reading this but, as iconic as they are, there are other iterations of denim jackets that you may actually prefer. Shamelessly attracted to acid wash but don’t want to traverse the potentially ill-fitting vintage route? We recommend Topshop’s acid wash cropped denim jacket. Can’t decide between themes of distress and diamanté? Pick a denim jacket from Miu Miu. In love with lilac? Zara’s a safe bet. Want something a bit sleeker than your typical denim jacket? We’d go for Sportmax. Averse to denim jackets in general because they don’t fit into the strictly beige palette of your wardrobe? Look at Lemaire. Or maybe you’d prefer something black? Acne Studios. Or white? Paige. Got the Telfar bug? Their unisex denim jacket would be a wonderful accompaniment to one of their bags. Bored? You won’t be when you see the denim jacket by Marques’ Almeida.
