A certain kind of casual cover-up has ruled the fashion roost for the last few spring/summer seasons.
Part of the nineties denim craze, oversized and faded jean jackets (teamed with mom jeans, of course) have been everywhere, but now it’s time to shake things up in the denim department.
After months of slobbing around in sweatpants and hoodies, denim is back on the sartorial agenda – and now we’re spoilt for choice with a host of fresh styles and colours to choose from.
Here are four jean jacket trends to try this season…
Love high-waisted jeans, shorts and skirts? Then a cropped denim jacket is what you need.
Whether oversized or fitted, dark or light, a shorter jacket helps to emphasise your waist and lengthen your legs.
The polar opposite of the pale, baggy ‘mom’ jackets of last year, slim-fit indigo jackets are inspired by the late-nineties – remember Ray Of Light era Madonna?
Double up by teaming your skinny jacket with straight-cut indigo jeans, and be sure to roll the sleeves up.
For a cute and colourful twist on a classic, why not plump for pink?
A pastel jacket is perfect for throwing over floaty floral dresses in summer, or layering with lightweight knits on chiller spring days.
Think regular denim jackets are boring and ubiquitous? Wait ’til you see some of the longline alternatives on offer this season.
From utility jackets to trenches, these fashion-forward styles are anything but ordinary.
