Denim jackets have been popular since they were first made, in the 1880s. Although blue is the most common colour for jean jackets, denim may be dyed to any colour that can be achieved with cotton, and just like with jeans themselves, “raw” or “dry” denim jean jackets are also available. In contrast to “washed” or “distressed” denim jean jackets, “raw” or “dry” denim jackets naturally, fade and break in with use. Here is more about Denim jacket styling.
Styling a Denim Jacket
Wear a denim jacket over a white T-shirt, chinos, khakis, or leggings to achieve the classic white t-shirt style. Depending on the season, you could also wear it over a crop top or layer it with a sweatshirt for additional warmth. With your blue or black denim jacket, try a pair of earth-tone high-waisted jeans and a vibrant crop top, or go with double denim for an all-denim style that makes a dramatic statement. Play with colour combinations or layer a jean jacket over a mini dress for a more laid-back look. Additionally, you can add extra edge to your jacket by distressing it with a shaver, cheese grater, scissors, or other common household items. To give a jean jacket a worn-in appearance, you might distress it and make some holes in it.
