“This season we wanted to create a collection that represents the technological nature and sleekness of our denim,” said Sarah Ahmed, DL1961’s Creative Director. “We continue our mission to create ‘the perfect fitting jeans’ and are excited to unveil our Fall/Winter fit collection, which captures the premium, effortless yet signature style that DL1961 has become known for.”
The classic denim jacket will never go out of style, but that doesn’t mean you can’t mix it up once in a while. We found three unique and stylish alternatives for spring denim jackets that will make impact (and are versatile enough that they won’t go out of style anytime soon).
1. Band of Outsiders Double-breasted denim jacket 2. J.Crew Leather-sleeved denim varsity jacket 3. Thakoon Addition Brushed-chambray contrast jacket

What happens when top style bloggers are brought together from all over the world in order to convene in sunny Ibiza for a week? You better expect a fun denim DIY project in there, all thanks to fashion retail giant Mango. Somewhere between drooling over their major swag bag of Mango clothing and MANGO TOUCH jewelry; recharging via morning yoga and getting a fabulous hotel massage, the gals did roll up their proverbial sleeves for a major denim jacket DIY session. Check out their jeans jacket creations on the Mango blog, or shop a few cute denim jackets (even a drool-worthy moto jeans jacket) we picked for you!

A spring outfit combo for women that just can’t go wrong? Denim jackets and pretty spring dresses. We dropped the hint in our denim dose this morning, and this time we’ll say it with gusto: pairing something pretty with something a little rock’n'roll, a little industrial, a little bad-ass? That equals a balanced, nicely contrasted look (which translates into stylish intrigue). Kristin Cavallari illustrated this point perfectly when she recently wore a cropped Levi’s jacket over a long white dress. Perfection. Check out a few of our favorite pairings below.
Look 1: Notify Denim Jacket + Thakoon Grey Knit Dress
Look 2: Topshop Moto Sleeveless Denim Jacket + The Ava Lace Dress in Coral
Look 3: Madewell Denim Jacket + Mint Green Strapless Dress
Look 4: Topshop Moto Pink Denim Vest + Moondance Dress In Ivory
Look 5: Current/Elliott Red Denim Jacket + Rare Pastel Stripe Dip Hem Dress

Menswear purveyor Topman, sourced some of the most talented fashion designers from both sides of the Atlantic to re-design the iconic denim jacket.

The man who forgot about the classic wardrobe staple can peel back the scales and see six new versions of the jeans jacket, one each from designers Lou Dalton, Katie Eary, Mark McNairy, Shaun Samson, Oliver Spencer and Topman Design.

Think you’ve had enough of all the crazy denim trends this year? We think clothing brand CLOSED will provide some relief with their range of wearable denim from top to bottom. Maintaining a bit of color in its range of jeans, cotton pants and separates, you’ll feel like you could invest in a couple of solid items that will stretch out your wear longer than the seasons. Closed is also one of the few denim brands currently offering denim capris—a perfect cut for ladies who want to show off their new favorite booties. We’re also digging the sartorial touches in the men’s collection. Check out the gallery below for all the Fall-Winter 2012 looks.
