Much like most things in the street style world as of late, Demna Gvasalia has turned a simple piece—in this case, the denim jacket—and transformed it into a must-own It item. You know which one we're talking about, the Balenciaga off-the-shoulder, asymmetrical jean jacket that fashion insiders like Taylor Tomasi Hill and Pernille Teisbaek have embraced in the fashion week street style circuits with their aspirational looks. And as the Gvasalia trickle-down effect typically goes down (remember his Vetements deconstructed jeans?) we're now seeing this off-the-shoulder denim jacket appear on a myriad of women and even by some of our favorite brands. Not sure if you're ready to show some shoulder? Not to fear, as you can simply invest in an oversize denim jacket and shrug it off your shoulders for the day. Scroll down to see how to pull off the off-the-shoulder denim jacket trend and shop our picks to try out the trend.
