The humble denim jacket is a deceptively simple clothing classic. While it is not the first thing to jump to mind when you think of classic style, or even of denim, nearly everyone has one and nearly everyone looks good one. It is the versatility of the simple denim jacket that is at the root of its success. What was once a plain working jacket can be adapted to suit people of any age, any gender and any style.
While denim jackets come in many different styles and colors, it is the simple blue waist length jacket that remains the classic. It can vary in colour from a faded off white to an inky midnight blue.
The length can vary from just under the breast to well below the hips. The ideal jacket in one that suits your figure and lifestyle and has been worn often enough to be a as comfortable as on old slipper and have faded to your preferred shade of blue.
For men, denim is still primarily a form of work or casual wear. It is, in many ways, the original work to evening outfit. For men who work in more formal environments, a denim jacket over a shirt and slacks is a quick solution to dressing down after a day at the office. Whatever the context, the plain well worn blue jacket sits well on most men, regardless of age.
For women, denim is much more of a fashion item. Designers love denim and constantly remake and restyle both jackets and jeans for the changing seasons. Denim on women can be relaxed casual wear or an ultra-chic fashion statement. Whatever the occasion, there will be a denim jacket that can be co-ordinated with just about any other outfit.
Like all classic clothing, the only restriction on the denim jacket is your confidence and imagination. Everyone should have one in their wardrobe. It is a basic item for developing your own distinct style from and at the same time a reliable fall back when you want something quick and easy to wear.
