I have been wondering for some time whether or not to buy a denim jacket, probably a fairly faded looking one, possibly or possibly not vintage. I mostly wear floral tea dresses and the occassional bold retro print, so these are the types of things it would be worn with. I am tall and slim, I guess people count me as the type that can get away with quite a lot, fashion-wise. However, in the highly valued opinion of my fellow TSR's, can anyone really get away with denim jackets or should they be left in the past?
In my opinion, they should be left in the past.
no as long as you match the denim jacket with feminine clothes (summer dresses etc) and roll up the sleeves you should get away with it!
Depends. A short faded one can look alright but only on the right people..They can look majorly chavvy on some. If you can pull it off, go for it!
Sometimes they are alright, if they are fitted and stuff and worn with nice girly clothes, otherwise they look a bit rough.
IMHO, denim should be left on the legs.
I've never liked them.
denium jackets should be banned, NOONE should wear them, fact.
The only thing I can wear my denim jacket with is a summery dress/skirt and sandals. It looks pants with anything else. I probably wouldn't go out and buy one if I didn't already have one (my dad bought me mine in my mid-teens).
I hate denim jackets with a passion but if you want to wear it then do.
whatever you wear some people will like and some people wont so as long as you like it and feel comfortable go for it.
An open denim jacket - blue, pretty faded - looks awesome on top of an open grey hoodie (with a tshirt underneath all that, obviously). I'm not sure if any would see this as a 'lesbian look' though.
it depends on how the denim jacket actually looks, i think it can look ace with cute dresses but again it can also look awful.
why not post a picture of the one that you are thinking of buying, and wear a dress with it (like in the changing rooms or something)
i really like leather jackets with dresses...but only some people can pull it off.
I like them, I have a nice fitted one that I got from India and it's got 3/4 sleeves.. I've never worn it with dresses though I have to say, I've not used it for aaaaages. But I think they look cool as long as they are worn right - JUST LIKE ANYTHING ELSE.
Don't like denim jackets wore those when I was like 10.
But they can still look alright on some people.
whatever you do, don't wear denim with denim.. made that mistake when i was 9 years old... never again!
