It’s not a denim jacket like the original “Levi’s cut”, which has been around for decades and is still going strong. Instead, it’s cut more like a blazer. Some silhouettes are classic, whereas others are fashion forward and edgy. The wash and texture of the denim can vary too. Faded denim blazers have a distinctive 70′s feel about them. Dressier styles, like the one from Anne Klein below, are more preppy.
I love denim clothes and the denim blazer, whether classic or fashion forward, is fab in my book. I like denim blazers best paired with a non-denim ensemble, but appreciate a spunky denim-on-denim look too. As with most denim products, it adds a relaxed, casual, hip and youthful edge to your outfit.
I have two cropped Levi’s-style denim jackets that are absolute wardrobe work horses. I am always looking for cover-ups because I easily feel cold. So I am not at all opposed to adding a spunky denim blazer to my wardrobe. After all, smart casual is my favourite dress code.
I vote yay. If the right denim blazer comes along, fabulous! I know I’d especially wear it with dresses, skirts, white bottoms, tweedy trousers and shorts, and silky harem pants. What’s your verdict?
