Denim jackets will forever be a wardrobe hero, and we've edited the best buys for stylish spring dressing...
Words by Lexxi Davis
This season we’re all about the indigo goals. In fact, EVERY season we’re all about the indigo goals (and by that we mean the best denim jackets out there, that we absolutely must have). Blue, black, distressed – nothing says spring quite like a faithful denim jacket and the good news? There is no wrong way to wear your off-duty blues.
If like us, you have quite the collection going already, you’ll be suitably prepared. However, with all the new styles on offer, you might be tempted to add to that ever-expanding denim jacket wardrobe and snap up something new. Alongside the familiar indigo version, SS17 offers up plenty of new shapes and shades to try. Think frayed edging and tied-up cuffs, cool Kimono styles, or embroidered numbers that were made for festival dressing.
Classic cuts are still a must, but should you be looking for something a little more statement, you’re sure to find that amongst the new season jackets too. Fashion lovers might be tempted by the tied-sleeve style from Warehouse. While H&M have got your oversized options covered. Even true denim jacket devotees, are sure to fall for one of the new numbers below, to feed their collection of best jeans.
So how do you wear the style staple in 2017? This season gets an update in double denim, wear kimono shapes with wide leg style in different shades. If you’re a classic dresser, stick with a tried and tested style formula, by wearing over Breton tops or a crisp white shirt. And if you’re in the market for more of a bohemian feel, try distressed and embroidered styles and wear over your fave floaty dresses or slick 70s flares.
No wardrobe is complete without one, so we suggest you take a look at our edit of the best denim jackets to buy now to ensure you’re suitably prepared for the new season and beyond…
