Denim jackets are back. Wait a minute–did they ever go out? How many denim jackets have you had over the years? I cringe a little to remember one back in the mid-nineties and another back in 2001. Remember the roomy boxy styles that were really more like a coat? Yes, we all had them.
In recent years we haven’t seen such a drastic change in styles, so if you’ve had a denim jacket for a few years, it’s probably still very much in style. The styles are short, fitted and look great with a skirt, dress or colored denim.
Next, let’s discuss shirts. Denim and chambray are back! In the past, we didn’t wear a chambray shirt with denim. Now that is ok if you vary the washes between top and bottom so it doesn’t look like you have a denim “suit”. It will also work well if you wear a long tank in a bright color under the shirt.
I really like the look of different washes with the jackets and shirts. In fact, this year I bought a dark denim shirt AND a lighter wash that can be worn more like a jacket. There tabbed sleeves, vests, and embellished denim.
Denim on top helps “neutralize” all that colored denim we see out there. It makes a great combination.
Do you have a pair of colored denim? If so, have you paired it with denim on top?
