17 times Bollywood celebrities proved the versatility of the denim jacket

0

The denim jacket has earned its place as a favourite in celebrity wardrobes, but that’s just one of the reasons why it should make its way to your closet

It may see its popularity rise and ebb in phases, but the denim jacket never given up its spot as a wardrobe essential. This year itself saw the outerwear staple on the runways of Chanel and Miu Miu, while designers closer to home—Dhruv Kapoor and Ruchika Sachdeva of Bodice—gave it their own new-age spin. Given the myriad ways it can be styled in, it is little wonder that this multi-purpose closet essential is so popular among women from all walks of life.

Those charting celebrity style in 2018 may have seen leading Bollywood celebrities like Kareena Kapoor KhanSonam K Ahuja and Alia Bhatt all making the denim jacket their go-to layer, no matter the season. Take Kapoor Khan for instance, who sported three different styles (embroidered, oversized and acid washed) on three different occasions (the gym, the airport and a movie screening respectively), proving the piece’s versatility. Meanwhile, Ahuja gave the denim-on-denim trend new meaning by pairing her light blue, boxy, cropped jacket over a button-down denim waistcoat, and Anushka Sharma played with colour with hers, picking a vibrant yellow slogan denim jacket by Kanika Goyal x Babbu. Sharma’s recent airport look was also equally slick—the star opted for a deconstructed denim trench coat by Dhruv Kapoor, and wore it with a pair of jeans. While Kapoor Khan styled her denim jackets in athleisure-inspired outfits only, Katrina Kaif was more open to experimentation with her sartorial pairings—the actor layered her boyfriend denim jacket over a sequinned, champagne-coloured dress, making a strong case for denim jackets as a worthy addition to your party wear wardrobe.
