A what now? That’s right, a denim coat. That thing you never, ever thought you’d see revived, not to mention consider wearing. Not that the denim jacket is being replaced or anything – for crying out loud, it’s probably never been this popular! – but the denim coat is slowly creeping it, making apparitions on the streets and in magazines and in shops. And I’m afraid I’m gonna end up wanting one.
Fashion editor Laura Stoloff is the reason we’ve gathered here today. The simple, classic pieces in her outfit make me want to reconsider everything I’ve ever bought.
But no one says you have to go with “simple”. This girl photographed by The Sartorialist wears plenty of bling on her dress and coat and it looks super fun.
Yes, there is such a thing as a denim trench coat. It works just like a regular trench coat, only it’s made of denim! Mindblowing! Forage Fashion wears hers in a chic, preppy combination.
For a casually bohemian look, pair denim with even more denim, like Happily Grey. Some knits, leather accessories and a hat will make everything look right.
Remember this type of coat? The shearling lining makes it warm, the denim outershell makes it… well, very early 90s. Street style snap from here.
And here’s a denim trench paired with another controversial item: the 3/4 pants. I don’t know what to think of them generally, but I like Esra‘s look.
This looks like something any one of young Johnny Depp’s girlfriends would have worn back in the day: it’s oversized and it’s definitely effortless and comfortable. And people wear it at Milan Fashion Week, so.
There is so much casual potential to this Free People coat! And I love this just-over-the-butt length for pants wearing.
It’s too early for bare legs around here, but I do miss the simplicity of a spring outfit. Dress, coat, flats, and you’re done, just like Chloe here.
Bet ya never thought you could wrap up in denim completely without looking like Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake on the red carpet. But you can, and this is how.
