Denim really has a life of its own and being the denim enthusiast that I am, it should make sense by now that I would have more than one denim stories to share with you all. In fact, I have past, present and future stories as denim plays a major role in my life and probably the only item in my wardrobe you can find twenty of. Each time I look at the blue threads on any denim, emotions, memories and thoughts run through my head.
I had been looking for oversized denim jacket for a long time and finally found this vintage one in Ghana’s thrift market for 35cedis which is like N2515/$9. I’ve pretty much been wearing it non-stop ever since I got it then. Wore it on my way back to Lagos and have thrown it on a lot of outfits.
Oversized denim jacket is not new at all. Was a massive trend in the late 80s entering the 90s and is making a comeback this 2016 in many styles, especially distressed and embellished like Gucci’s embroidered denim jacket spotted on Rihanna and 2 Chainz at the #BET2016.
A wardrobe must have, denim jackets go with anything. From layered over a button-down-shirt, white tee shirt or dungarees like I wore mine and paired it with sneakers to complete a sporty-casual look.
