The sizing of denim jackets is less specific than other items of clothing. Jackets tend to incorporate more sizes into one, which is why you'll often find XS to XL being used. For this, you'll need to consult a size guide and see how your measurements compare. Some jackets will stick to traditional sizing, but even then, they might have a more limited choice as they expect one size to cover more people.
One of the reasons that sizing is vaguer when it comes to jackets is the fact that you might go for a different fit than you would for, say, a T-shirt. The fits of a jacket can normally be categorised as tight or fitted, standard, and loose, the latter of which is also known nowadays as oversized.
Oversized jackets are extremely popular thanks to the fact you can just throw them over what you're wearing. They're a bit more covered than other smaller options, making them better for changeable weather. If you want a smart look, though, a tighter fit is the way to go.
Alongside the fit, width and cut of a jacket, you also get a say over the length. Lengths of jackets fall into three main categories: cropped, standard and long. A cropped jacket will normally finish above your hip bone, sometimes as high as your ribs. It can be a nice, summery way of showing off what you're wearing on your bottom half, especially if that's a cropped T-shirt or top.
The standard-length jacket should sit on your hips, where the bottom of a top would normally sit, while longer jackets will go even further down than this. As well as being great for the colder months, this extra length can make for more of a style statement.
When you think denim, most people will think blue. Blue is a great option; it's versatile, it's classic and it's timeless. You also have a range different blues to choose from. Black is popular too, due to how many other colours it goes with, as well as the fact it can make for a slightly smarter denim if it's not a washed black.
But if you're looking to branch out, particularly if you're looking for a lighter, more summery addition to your wardrobe, why not explore outside the traditional denim box? Pastel pinks, greens, beiges: all of these are viable, stylish options that are bang on trend.
Hoods on denim jackets are not very common and by no means essential, but if you want your denim jacket to be your go-to through the colder months then it's an addition worth looking into.
Another option to consider is a denim jacket with a fleece or borg (faux sheepskin) lining or collar, though this will of course only be wearable for a proportion of the year. A hood will provide warmth and slight rain cover, although do remember that denim and rain are often not the best combination!
