So, guess what – it’s now winter, it’s freezing outside, Kylie Jenner’s lips are fake, the Clippers are still in the playoffs, your tax return will be due soon, and the everyday jacket is getting an AW15 upgrade. So much going on.
This season’s key jacket shape is moving away from last winter’s leather moto and biker styles with your A-symetrical zip throughs, oversized lapels, padded quilting and tons of hardware; and towards the classic Trucker Jacket – with it’s traditional structure, self fabric front and back yokes and simple button up.
I wouldn’t call it a denim jacket, in my mind a denim jacket is slightly fitted and cropped – It’s cute and girly. A denim jacket is like an Anna Nicole Guess commercial or a prop out of The Babysitters Club, while a trucker jacket is straight out of the passenger side of Kill Bill’s pussy wagon. Vast Difference.
I find it’s usually better to go a size up or shop mens jackets for an oversized boyfriend style that you can layer with knitwear and fleece. There’s plenty of these around in denim, but definitely look out for leather versions as well. If you are going for a denim style, make sure you pick a heavy 100% cotton with no stretch. Key brands I would look to would be R13, Nudie Jeans and Levis.
