Your Signature Vintage 80s Denim JacketAugust 14, 2018
Can you believe it’s been over a century since the first denim jacket came on the scene? First created in 1880 by the legend, Levi Strauss, as a clothing choice for cowboys, engineers and miners out in the Wild Wild West, the jean jacket has evolved through the decades. It once was associated with teenage troublemakers in the 1950’s and today has both casual AND high fashion appeal. We’re here to show you how to rock your own signature vintage 80s denim jacket from Blue 17 Vintage!
80s Denim Jackets to the Rescue
Oversized denim jackets were a huge hit in the 1980’s, especially as the classic Bruce Springsteen rocked a denim jacket for his hit song ‘Born in the USA’. Our model, Ali, can’t get enough of her own light-wash denim jacket from Blue 17 Vintage. She’s paired it with comfortable vertically striped trousers and black vintage pumps. We adore this look on Ali because she looks edgy yet sophisticated, comfortable yet classy, all in one! 80s Denim thankfully can be mixed and matched with a variety of textures and clothing types, but lighter denim shades go better with darker trousers, as means of contrasting colours. We can definitely see Ali out and about at a concert in this look, or even just a casual trip to the shops! However you choose to rock your signature denim – be bold!
