Fashion trends come and go. A select few withstand the ravages of time. Topping that list is the denim jacket.
It first made its debut in the 1880s. Jean legend Levi Strauss created a jacket to go with the bottoms he’d created for miners, cowboys and railroad workers. And, denim jackets are still as relevant as ever to this day.
Now, pick something cropped, something colorful, something lined or something long. You can even go the classic route and stick to the tried and true style that’s been around for around 100 years.
A denim jacket, if you don't have one already, will be your new workhorse. It goes with almost everything. Pair it with jeans, leggings or slip it on over a maxi-dress or skirt. Go dark or light. But you won't ever go wrong.
