Folks, let’s begin August by highlighting the best piece of denim that might exist. The denim jacket. Yes, if you’ve been a kid of the 80’s, 90’s or 00’s (or just have been alive), we’re pretty sure that you’ve worn the denim jacket at least once or twice (or everyday) in your life.
Life of the denim jacket
Even though the denim jacket feels rather timeless, its story goes back to the late 19th century. Well-known denim brand Levi’s designed the first denim jacket, and with a proper breakthrough to the mainstream in the 50’s, it’s been a classic ever since. Hollywood icons James Dean and Marilyn Monroe are two famous faces that worked the piece during the decade. Denim would become a symbol for the new youth fashion and is still to this date more associated with attitude and edge rather than preppy and done. Even though the lines between styles gets less visible.

The awesomeness of the piece is invaluable today. Denim jackets are both easy to style, brings roughness and works during both fall and summer. The denim jacket is one of those pieces that adapts themselves after the curring trend.

It’s the wardrobe hero of our time (or kind of the chameleon).
