Allure Fashion Trend: The Beauty Of Denim
By Ebuka Uzonwanne
One outstanding beauty of a denim jacket or shirt is that it will retain its style for years to come; its ageless.
You are more likely to get bored of wearing it before it needs to be thrown away although given its timeless look, it sure never goes out of style.
Denim actually has its origins in Renaissance Europe, where specifically is unclear.
The denim jacket started as a way of re-purposing old scraps from jean manufacturing, and from these casual beginnings, we have a very casual item. However, the denim jacket is a staple piece that has more to offer than casual wear.
Styling the denim is never a tough work but fun.
Have a go at wearing your denim jacket under a black overcoat for a smarter twist for example.
Let’s start off with a quick and easy on styling options.
It’s true that the denim jacket does fall in and out of favour. What was in during the 90s felt a bit unloved at the start of the millennium.
Nonetheless, the denim has certainly made quite a comeback – pretty much screaming “cool casual”.
Wearing a nice skinny jean underneath your jacket and pair of tan Chelsea boots will give a touch of urban to a classic.
Denim jackets come in a variety of cuts and styles. For the most part, they are loose around the body and slightly baggy in the arms to allow room for movement.
However, most denim jackets should actually fit quite snugly to your shoulders, almost like a shirt.
Although you might think this sounds restrictive, it actually makes sense. It will make it easier and perfect to fold depending on the weather.
A denim jacket isn’t going to yield or stretch much over time so it’s best to get the perfect fit on at purchase – it should have the same slimming effect as a sports jacket.
If buttoning up your jacket look streamline with the rest of your outfit, baggy jeans or big trainers won’t work, it is better to opt for slim trousers and smart, slender shoes.
Now that you have an idea of styling a denim, all you have to do is get yourself a brand new jacket and rock it with style.
