Statement Jackets

Thursday, September 08, 2016

Before I went to spend Summer in Croatia I purchased a bunch of iron-on patches to apply to denim shorts. In my research before purchase and looking around on the streets I noticed more and more people started again customizing their denim jackets and loose fitting denim shirts, leather jackets, bomber jackets, military button up shirts and jackets as well as plaid shirts.

Earlier I found applying patches to long denim jeans a bit childish but then I found beautiful floral (pink peony) ones which look beautiful when applied along pocket seems on high waist culottes jeans. Fabulous 70's inspired denim DIY.


When researching I found two fabulous shops which sell really great variety of statement jackets with patches or writing on the back.  One of them is High Heels Suicide with their popular 'Girl Gang' denim jacket which is available for pre-order now.

On JNLlovet shop you can shop pre-made military, leather, denim or bomber jackets or make your own right there in the shop! This is where I ordered my light denim jacket.


If you already have an old denim or leather jacket you can certainly shop for iron-on patches on Etsy, in one of fast fashion stores or in sawing supplies store in your town and custom make your own piece. If you don't have a denim or leather jacket to use you could also do the same work on a loose fitting denim or plaid shirt or a dress. You could also use white fabric paint on dark leather jacket for more dramatic results. 

If you are looking for more adult version of this trend you could just apply a bunch of vintage pins and maybe a fur pom pom on the front of the leather jacket as pictured bellow.

Are you going to go with DIY or shop for already made designs?
