Yes, yes, we know the denim jacket is the recurring year-long staple piece that you need in your closet, especially with the weather cooling down. But, no matter how many perfect ones you see online, out shopping, on Rihanna, or, more importantly, North West; you definitely don't need a new one. The denim jacket you have is probably North West approved, but could use some sprucing up, some personality; a statement.
Embroidered denim is having a moment right now. Or, you could always go the Girl Scout way and sew on cool patches. But, the laziest, but also most efficient way to add some unique novelty to your old denim jacket? Pins! You can stick them on and change when whenever you want, and even add them to other denim items (except maybe not your jeans…that sounds uncomfortable). We’ve rounded up 17 outspoken, eye-catching pins that are the perfect solution to making your jacket feel new again (and definitely helping to start random conversations).
