You loved your denim jacket in elementary school.
Perhaps even in that grungy ’90s phase you went through (because you had an older brother who lived in the basement constantly blasting Nirvana and claiming to be misunderstood for wearing a ball-chain necklace and JNCOs.)
Ok, maybe your older brother wasn’t the sartorially suave guy you thought he was in hindsight.
Regardless, he wore a denim jacket. As did all of your other favorite (read: terribly awesome) ’90s stars as well as the badasses from years ago. It’s a classic and worth your wardrobe investment.
Rekindle with your beloved hand-me-down again—or throw down the dough for a classic that lasts. Denim jackets are making the rounds again these days on street style blogs and fall runway presentations. Of course, this is nothing new for you denim jacket veterans who’ve had a tried-and-true jacket to show for it (looking at you, Brad).
BUT: If you’re new to the world of denim jackets, opt for a blue then go for a black or grey next. Don’t start with a nearly-cropped bleached denim jacket like I did.
