Denim jackets have been a true wardrobe staple since time immemorial. Tried and tested over the years, the humble jean jacket is a must-have in every wardrobe. Credit goes to its versatility - the piece can be worn all year round, and can even be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
If there’s a label that knows how to put a trick of the eye, streetwear spin on it - it's Balenciaga. Season after season, we’ve seen models strut down Balenciaga’s runways in innovative iterations of the reliable old blue. Think bold embroidery, out-of-the-box silhouettes; the Paris-based luxury fashion house knows a thing or two about deconstructing the timeless classic and making it new again.
Here’s how to style Balenciaga’s oversized denim jackets inspired by our favourite style icons, throughout the year:
Can there be too much denim? Not according to Bella Hadid, who put together an effortlessly cool ensemble in her oversized maxi denim coat with a denim shirt and slouchy cargo jeans.
Another advocate for denim-on-denim is Kendall Jenner, who opted to keep things simple by putting together her asymmetrical Balenciaga jacket with jeans and pointed black boots, letting the spotlight shine on the statement piece. A perfect outfit to get drinks with your girlfriends, we think.
Taylor Tomasi Hill gives us a lesson on how to style the denim jacket for summer, and for when we’re back in business. While denim jackets look great thrown over a floral dress for a cute brunch date, or a slip dress for date night, consider adding the trusty piece to your work wardrobe.
Loose silhouettes reigned supreme in the past year. As we adjust to hybrid working in the new normal - the new office look is power casual. Take cues from Hill who paired her Balenciaga jacket with a tailored tartan dress and Alaia heels - it’s a well put together look that’ll keep you from freezing in the office’s air conditioning.
Last, but certainly not the least, Balenciaga denim jackets serve as the ultimate airport outfit enhancer. While travelling, comfort is key. Whether you like to jet set in sweatpants or pyjamas - throwing on a denim jacket is a no-brainer when you have ten other things to worry about before traveling. Ask Kareena Kapoor Khan who elevated her all black monochrome ensemble with a classic oversized Balenciaga jacket.
