Ages ago I bought a denim jacket (a nice mid denim blue shade tailored one, not a Status Quo heavy metal Levis version grin) but I have hardly worn is due to not knowing what to wear jeans wise with it?hmm do I opt for jeans trying to find exactly the same shade, or is it better to have the blue jacket & black jeans????

I suspect it would be too much to wear it with jeans - maybe linen trousers? In brown, or something?

Never, but never, wear denim with denim.

The fashion police will be onto you before you can say "double denim disaster"

Only wear denim on top or bottom - not both at same time, regardless of colour

Whizzz Mon 11-Aug-08 16:38:08

yes I have brown trousers...would black non jeans be OK??

I never did double denim, until this summer when I wore a fitted jacket with BF jeans. Looked lush, actually.

No, don't wear denim jacket with denim jeans.

Have got lovely Lee retro denim jacket, I tend to wear it with dresses, or pedal pushers. At a push fitted linen trousers. Would necer wear it with jeans or winter trousers.

DP keeps saying it would look fine to wear denim jacket and dark blue denim jeans (at which he recieves withering look)

grin I was concious of not looking like Status Quo...matching denim waistcat...grinwink

Actually Cocolepew's boyfriend jeans idea sounds very cool (but would need to be slim and not have a wide bum to get away with it)

cocolepew Mon 11-Aug-08 16:41:19

Oh yes. My bum is only this () wide. Ahem.

not with jeans you will look like Bananarama

my mate wears one with long skirts looks great

cocolepew Mon 11-Aug-08 16:45:41

I'm very fashion forward. I had to change my hair cut because that Aggy woman copied it grin

I have too many bad 80s memories to wear a denim jacket with anything else but skirts or dresses.

zippitippitoes Mon 11-Aug-08 16:51:57

oh yuk no definitely not match the jacket with jeans gross

Whizzz Mon 11-Aug-08 16:53:20

grin I take it, sewing Moterhead patches to the back is right out then grin

JackieNo Mon 11-Aug-08 17:48:09

I'd just add some fringing tbhgrin.

zippitippitoes Mon 11-Aug-08 17:49:16

by coincidence i found a warehouse denim jacket here the other day and thought i could wear that

not sure whether i can tho

it may be i am too old for it

I ususally wear my denim jacket with knee-length skirts and boots through winter or linen trousers through summer.

flowerybeanbag Mon 11-Aug-08 20:09:04

I have a little Levis fitted jacket, very nice with dresses, or non-jeans trousers of most descriptions. Never wear with jeans though, matching or otherwise.
