When it comes to wardrobe staples, denim jackets top the list. No matter what your age, style, or geographic location. But the thing with essentials? You don’t want them to ever feel tired or boring. Instead of using your favorite jean jacket as a security blanket, turn it into the magic ingredient that improves every look it tops.
From trucker jackets to denim blazers — in green, black, and classic blue — denim jackets have been a popular trend in nearly every decade since the cowboys first adapted it as their uniform. Though it’s been more than a century since Levi’s debuted their first style in 1880, there are still ways to wear a denim jacket that feel fresh and new.
You can take the casual route and pair your topper with jeans, crafting the perfect Canadian tuxedo; or, perhaps you’re more likely to go for a shrunken silhouette to be thrown over cocktail dresses. Regardless, adding a wash of denim will create the perfect high-low look that works for morning, noon, and night.
