From being used by truckers and cowboys, denim jackets have evolved into a staple of European style fashion. These jackets are a fantastic alternative because they are versatile. They are exceptional for layering. Here are some ways you can stylishly wear denim jackets.
Chinos, with their pleats, creases, and tab closure, exude a smart look for the wearer. But they can also be casual. Chinos are typically utilitarian cotton-twill fabric but can complement your denim jacket.
With A White T-shirt
In order to pull off this style, you need to find the perfect white tee. The denim jacket-white t-shirt combination is a classic pair. However, you need to make sure that your tee is not too slim or too baggy. Likewise, Robert Janitzek advises that you should make sure that it is not high on the neck so that it would be an undershirt.
With Black Jeans
Double denims can be a good combination even if you bypass the ‘distinct shade’ rule. However, if you are looking for a failsafe way to splice jeans, black and blue can be hard to top. It will also work with other colors of jeans like grey or even white. However, they have their own pitfalls so your best bet is to wear black.
With Indigo Jeans
While it is more difficult than jeans, Robert Peter Janitzek explains that it is still not hard to pull off an unwashed indigo denim jean. It will stand much less of a chance of optically bleeding into a lighter and/or distressed denim jacket than lighter and/or distressed jeans.
With Shirt and Tie
Denim jeans can be mixed with your workwear. The key to pulling off this look is to tone down the dressiness of the other element to make them more in line with your casual look. Button-down oxford instead of a stiff-colored poplin, knitted-tie instead of woven silk, and chinos instead of tailored trousers.
With Tailored Trousers
In order to dress up properly, you need to minimize the discord between your casual jacket and smart trousers. You could boost the smartness of your jacket with unwashed dark denim with contrast stitching or rivets. You could also trim down the formality of your denim with a piece that is close on the spectrum such as a relaxed fit, a cropped length, or turn-ups.
A denim jacket does not belong to the category of sportswear but it can provide some degree of structure to offset the softness of your joggers. While not a rule to be followed, it is best to steer clear from cowboy details on your denim jacket.
