Ask Louise: How To Refresh A Vintage Denim Jacket

“Hi Louise, I have a vintage denim jacket that I hate to let go of but I’m worried is a little dated.. how do I style it in a new way without looking too 80’s? -Alex”

Denim jackets are a wardrobe staple regardless of your style, age, or location. They can be worn preppy, edgy, casual, or even out to date night. It’s all in how you style them! For those cool, oversized denim jackets that may verge on vintage looking (like this one) , it’s important to style them in a way that seems fresh and modern. Since the heat is already creeping up on us here in LA, I am all about the casual chic vibes these days.

Vintage style denim jackets tend to be a bit masculine and cocoon shaped, but that’s what makes them so cool. Since they are a bit voluminous, it’s flattering to show some leg and keep things a bit fitted underneath. This Millie Mackintosh leather mini skirt is another wardrobe staple, and looks understatedly sexy with a casual tee tucked in – coupled with this denim jacket, this look has that undone, borrowed-from-your-boyfriend vibe. I wore this look running around downtown LA recently – the perfect throw on and go casual outfit.

The trick to making a denim jacket like this more date-night appropriate? Take a note out of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner’s playbook, and throw it over a slinky little silk dress. Pair with strappy heels for drinks with your partner, or even with white sneakers for an ultimate cool-girl look.
