Five New Ways to Wear Your Vintage Denim Jackets

Trends may come and trends may go but a blue denim jacket will be a wardrobe staple forever! With culottes, off-shoulder tops and maxi dresses ruling the runways and spotted at every street corner we give you five hip ways to style your vintage denim jacket this autumn.

  • Bohemian girl

Channel your inner hippie and pair a crinkled, long skirt in an ethnic print with a tank top and a denim jacket. Accessorize with a pair of silver shoulder-dusters. Roll up the sleeves of your jacket and add a stack of bangles. Style your hair in beachy waves and make heads turn.

  • 21 Jump Street

A wardrobe essential this year and in 2017, opinions are still divided over this trendy piece of clothing. Some believe that jumpsuits don’t flatter all figures but an easy way to ensure that it looks fantastic is to wear it with a denim jacket and a pair of high heels.

  • Cutelottes not culottes

Culottes have made a surprising comeback this year and a great way to transition these knee-length or calf-length pants is to wear them with a classic white shirt and a denim jacket. Add a pair of black heels for an evening out with your black culottes. You could also wear them with a pair of red ballet flats, a red top and your trusty denim jacket for a casual dinner with friends.

  • Use it as a temporary cover-up

There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be wearing those trendy crop tops this autumn. Unless you’re a true child of the tropics and bring out a cardigan when it rains! If you use public transport or have a dress-code at college, wear a denim jacket over your crop top and jogger pants. Add a pair of classic Converse sneakers in contrasting red, some mirrored sunglasses and have a great day.

  • Over your favorite floral maxi

A great way to transition your summer dresses to autumn is to throw a smart jacket over them. Replace your strappy sandals with a pair of metallic ballet shoes; add a trendy monogrammed envelope clutch, statement hoops and you’re set for a movie night with friends.

Shibi, like the song in ‘West Side Story’, is oh so pretty, witty and bright! Modest too, but we can discuss that later. A Chennai native (34) who now dwells in the capital, there is nothing she loves more than a good story. Except for a good handbag. A self-professed shopaholic with impeccable taste, the young women’s rights lawyer and mother was ‘discovered’ by an Indian Express editor in Chennai at a famous boutique eight years ago and she has not looked back since. Fashion writing allows her to combine her two greatest loves and Shibi has been published in The Hindu, the Indian Express, Femina, Scroll, Bodahub, Hi-Blitz Magazine and many more. A militant optimist, Shibi abhors armchair activism and suggests that everyone ‘Be the Change’ instead of complaining about Modiji. Or run for POTUS – anybody seems better qualified than Trump. She also loves animals and has orchestrated many a doggy/kitty rescue; her most fervent hope is to see the status and treatment of both animals and women improve in India and the world over. Also, she requests you to RECYCLE and to REUSE. Climate change is real, people. Jai Hind!
