Update an Old Favorite for a Fresh New Look

Posted on July 25, 2017

While summertime is still in full swing, soon the fall leaves will begin to paint the landscape and school hallways and college campuses will abound with endless chatter and fall fashions.  One of the hottest trends in fashion has always been denim.  From jeans and capris to shorts, skirts and jackets; denim is like an old friend that brings comfort and style to the midst. 

One of the most versatile pieces of denim in any wardrobe is a denim jacket.  It can be worn on cool summer evenings and crisp fall days.  Layered over a sundress to achieve a conservative and fresh look or coupled with a pair of white capris and a tunic, the denim jacket is the must have accessory to any wardrobe. 

Chances are many of you already have a denim jacket hanging in your closet or have considered picking one up while shopping for new fall fashions.  Perhaps you ran across one at the local thrift store but hesitated on buying it because it was "just another jacket."   Whatever the reason your trusty denim is hanging in the closet or on the store rack, I say it is time to set it free and let your imagination flow while creating a new look for an old friend.

Combine a gently worn denim jacket with new embellishments and not only do you have the comfort of an "old friend" but you also achieve the styling of something sassy and new that reflects your own personal sense of style. 

Zinck's Outlet has literally hundreds of appliques that will bring to life your sense of style at a price that won't break the bank in the process.  Take ordinary to the next level and choose from butterflies, wicked princess, crosses, stars, florals, and hundreds of other designs to find your perfect look.   Combine appliques with a little gathered lace and you have a great vintage look that suits today's modern stylings.  I chose shades of brown, black, and gold, combining them with a little gathered lace in cream to transform my project into a fashion forward look.  The total cost of my project was a mere $3.10,  making this new look a success for less than the cost of lunch at the local fast food restaurant!

Whether you go for a simple pocket pickup or a total overall for the back of your jacket, the look is all your own. The best part? These appliques aren't just for denim jackets.  They can be used to embellish a variety of clothing options including t-shirts, sweaters, jeans, leather jackets, bags, and more.  The uses are endless. Where will your creativity take you?
