Denim jackets come in many guises and get better as they age, an ambition for us all. A broken in piece, softened in the wash, faded in the sun, and a little worn here and there. The French may have given us Coco CHANEL and her elegant jackets, but the Americans came up with the quintessential classic wardrobe staple.
Most of us have a version of this somewhere stashed in the wardrobe. who would have thought of it? what started as a utilitarian top for cowboys and miners n the late 1800’s became a wardrobe classic! Classic brands include Levis, Lee, Wrangler… These days every design house brings out an interpretation of the denim jacket, so really all that matters is what you like. My personal rule where denim jackets are concerned, is that I don’t like them to look brand new. I love the comfort of a broken in piece, softened in the wash, faded in the sun, and a little worn in places. My preference is to do my own distressing with time, not so keen on the artificially distressed look, so I do like tough and organic denim.
Like all true classics, they go with everything- practically. Check out that you have created your most flattering silhouette with your denim jacket and enjoy the carefree wear.
