Within the world of summer fashion, the denim jacket is something of a power move. Sling one on and suddenly, the most basic white-shirt-and-denims duet has been elevated. Whether you are headed for a post-workout coffee run or the dancefloor, the right denim jacket can take you places—just ask Bollywood’s best-dressed names. Ahead, we take a look at all the times celebrities proved that this classic staple is the only hero piece your summer wardrobe needs.
Looking to add your own personality to this timeless classic? Padukone advises opting for a slogan jacket, like her Kanika Goyal number emblazoned with cool catchwords to add some individuality to this wardrobe failsafe.
The star is known for her normcore approach to fashion and unsurprisingly, has a large collection of denim jackets to show for it. Among other favourites is this trucker-inspired silhouette that offers immense throw-on-and-go appeal for flights in the AM.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
A true connoisseur of classics, it isn’t often that Rai Bachchan strays from her tried-and-tested signature but when she does, you can expect her to make a bang—like this embellished number that is unlike anything you already own. For best results, layer it over your go-to pair of jeans in a similar wash for the denim-on-denim pairing of your dreams.
The slogan-mania has gripped Kaif as well, but it’s interesting how she styled a similar jacket in a different way. While Padukone’s look is a no-brainer for daywear, the newly married star took hers to the dancefloor instead by layering it over a high-shine number.
And speaking of the dancefloor, Advani will convince you to break your denims out of the casual closet and make it a mainstay for happy hour instead with her studded number. Paired with a coordinated skirt and neon heels for a pop of colour, her look makes for the failsafe style signature that will see you through summer with ease.
