The Oversized Denim Jacket

how to wear an oversized denim jacket

I don’t know why denim has become a trend recently, because I personally don’t see this fabric as a “trendy” clothing item. As far as I know denim has always been in fashion or in style(which ever you prefer). In my case, denim has never left my closet, whether it’s fabricated in jeans, shirts, skirts or jackets.

how to wear an oversized denim jacketWith that being said, I wanted an oversized denim jacket for a long time, because I’ve always had fitted ones and I wanted to try out something new. Somehow I’m very careful when it comes to buying clothing items like jackets oversized, because I’m short(1.62m) and I don’t want to look any shorter or look like I’m carrying a lot of weight or like I have something to hide. The oversized denim jackets I found in second hand/vintage shops were usually too big for me or not quite what I was looking for. Now shops like, H&M, ZARA, Forever21 sell oversized jackets according to our size, but I decided to do things differently though: Instead of buying an oversized denim jacket, I just went and bought a regular denim jacket oversized. In other words, I bought my denim jacket two sizes bigger: So instead of a size Small I bought a Large!oversized denim jacket20160727_111951-001

I couldn’t be any happier with this jacket, because it doesn’t look too big or too small on me and it still has a vintage oversized/90s feel to it. Besides that, it was on SALE and I got it for only EUR11,-. I paired it with a black ribbed sleeveless maxi dress from Bershka(old),and some black wedges from Graceland(new).

    1. Thank you dear! I couldn’t believe it myself when I saw it on SALE. I love these types of bargains, especially for items I that will go a loooong way! And now this has become my go-to jeans jacket (for now though) ;). Have a lovely week!


    1. Dankje dankje!! Jeans kan je idd niet omheen, je ziet het nu echt overal in elke vorm. Ondanks dat het nooit is weg geweest, wordt het nu wel als een “trend” beschouwd. Dankje voor het lezen xxx

  2. I’m on the hunt for a vintage looking oversized denim jacket.
    But here in Spain they’re so overpriced, if I have any luck I’ll be able to get some for under 50 Euros this Summer Sale.
    Loved yours by the way. It’s such a shame that we don’t have F21 where I live in Spain.
    With all that said, I really enjoyed your blog post and the way you styled it was great!
