the denim jacket

To be completely honest, I was never that into denim jackets until Balenciaga debuted their FW16 collection. As an acceptable blazer alternative, denim jackets always felt too 'too relaxed' for me, and the search for the perfect fit, color and brand was never-ending. 

Balenciaga really changed the denim jacket game though, with the idea that denim jackets can too, look chic when paired with heels, skirts or a crisp, poplin button-down. Levi's might be America's favorite denim, but now it's all about a modern cut. 

As much as I loved the runway's swing style, last fall, I bought this jacket and I couldn't be happier. The cut is classic and the wash is timeless, and now that spring is finally here I can't stop wearing it with everything from skirts, to dresses and wide-leg trousers. See above are a few denim jackets (that are just as cool as Balenciaga) that I'm loving right now.
