How To Update Your Basic Denim Jacket

February 22, 2017

When it comes to fashion, it’s not always easy to stand out. So it’s all about the way you choose to style a piece that almost everyone ehas. I love the idea of taking basic pieces and putting your own spin on it and making them unique to you and you only. I came up with a fun and easy way to update your basic denim jacket that won’t break the bank (unless you want to!). It will literally take you 5-10 minutes and you may already have everything you need.



  1. Denim Jacket

You can use any denim jacket you want. I’m sure you have one laying around that can use a little makeover. I chose this black, boyfriend style jacket because I honestly haven’t seen one like it. I love the loose fit and all of its imperfections.

  1. Brooches or Pins

This is where you get creative and your mom’s brooch/pin collection will come in handy! You can use as many pins as will fit on the top of the back of the jacket (as seen in the photo above). I’ve linked the ones I used below – they’re so cute & fun! Pins are very on trend for 2017, so they are much more accessible than before. Next time you go shopping, check out the accessory department and I’m sure you’ll find pin sets. Your local vintage store is also a great source for pins. Unless they’re designer, I’m sure you can get your hands on some inexpensive, unique pieces. Don’t feel pressured to buy a lot at once. Think of it as a work in progress. No doubt I want to add more pieces to my jacket – I still need to raid my mom’s jewelry drawer!

Now the fun part…lay out the pins as you desire and attach them. Just like that, you have a cool statement piece that will get you a ton of compliments! And even if your bestie feels inspired to do the same, it won’t look like yours.
