The temperatures may be taking a dive, but there’s no need to hang up your favorite jean jacket.
Denim brands are bulking up their outerwear assortment this season with new puffer coats and Sherpa-lined classics.
Levi’s is leading the charge by updating its iconic Trucker jacket as a slim down-filled quilted coat. Meanwhile, meme-worthy Balenciaga pumped up the volume of its down-filled Trucker by piling it over nylon and flannel layers.
PRPS refreshed the traditional puffer silhouette with a denim shell this winter. Dsquared2 opted for a hybrid jacket style by mixing dark rinse denim sleeves with a down-filled upper.
Designer Isabel Marant added warmth to her boxy jean jacket with bandana printed quilted sleeves. Knit sleeves add a cozy and relaxed feel to Pilcro’s denim jacket. Maje layers flannel under its cropped denim topper.
With retro ’70s and ’90s fashion in style, sherpa and teddy bear lining are proving to be go-to add-ons for brands wishing to winterize their jean jackets.
Brands like Ksubi, Frame, Wrangler and Diesel take a classic approach by adding a pop of natural shearling to collars or soft teddy bear lining to the inside of Trucker silhouettes.
Other brands are playing up the fun factor with faux fur and colorful shearling. Forte Dei Marmi Couture adds soft and silky leopard printed faux fur to its ’80s-inspired jean jacket. Avec Les Filles adds generous amounts of millennial pink faux fur to its workwear-inspired jean jacket.
