Add your personal flair to this season’s staple, the denim jacket. Here’s how:
Watch our video for some ideas on how to turn a trendy denim jacket into a one-of-a-kind style statement.
PICK OUT THE PERFECT JACKET
Denim doesn’t ever go out of style, so pick a good quality jacket that will see you through many seasons to come. There are a lot of options – from button-up to biker style, or even a sleeveless vest, so you shouldn’t have trouble finding something you love! Just grab your RCS Card, and hit up the RCS Shopping Network of over 23 000 stores – including all the ones mentioned below.
DISTRESS YOUR DENIM
Get that street-style rock-star look by distressing your denim with a little sandpaper. Pick out a few areas where you’d like the weathered and frayed look, then rub sandpaper over it until you like how it looks. To take it a step even further, you can use a pair of sharp scissors to add some slits.

PAINT IT ON
Whether you’re a talented artist or DIY noob, it’s easy to add character with a splash of paint. Dab a few simple lines with a paintbrush as we have, paint over a stencil, or use a toothbrush for the splatter effect. CNA stocks fabric paint in a wide variety of colours (from R25), so this is your chance to get creative!
PATCH IT UP
For the final bit of bling, choose some funky patches and pins to make a real fashion statement. Gone are the days of ironing things on – most patches these days have a pin at the back, so you can collect many and change them up as the mood strikes!
