Ralph Lauren made the denim jacket a high-fashion staple in the early 90’s | A classic in your closet, it never goes out of style

Remember when denim jackets were the cool thing to wear back in the 60’s and 90’s? This iconic piece wasn’t just a jacket, it had emblems, patches and pins, hinting at self-expression and liberation. Denim jackets made their way into our high-fashion staple closets with the help of Ralph Lauren in the early 90’s. He made a splash with the long prairie skirt, boots and a dash of turquoise jewels.

Owning a denim jacket is a good investment for every woman. It never goes out of style, depending on the cut and color you pick. Here are 4 ways to style the denim jacket 


Floral summer dress | A floral dress paired with a denim jacket is a classic look all over the world. Pair them with flats or heels, depending on your mood.

Jumpsuit | If you want to take the classic look a step further, go for a jumpsuit. Be it printed or a bright solid colour, both will look perfect.


The jacket should take the shape of your shoulders and upper body.


White denims with a tee | This is our personal favouritebecause not only is it comfortable, but also different, thanks to the colour palette. We love how well the grey and white goes with the denim. For this look, ensure the jacket is a shade of blue.


Winter layers | For winters, wear a chunky knit under the jacket paired with your favourite scarf. You can even layer the outfit by wearing the jacket under a coat (fashion bloggers are rocking this look).

We understand that some of you may prefer different styles such as an oversized denim jacket, but a more fitted one looks chic. It’s good to remember a few points while shopping for your next denim jacket.
Make sure the length of the jacket is on the shorter side.
The fit should be snug and comfortable.
It should take the shape of your shoulders and upper body (because looking bulky is never flattering).
Invest in shades of blues as they are more versatile in styling with different outfits.
