So why does it sometimes feel so hard? Perhaps something like this — that has a more refined approach to denim will feel softer to you: If you have dark hair whether your skin is light or deep, you will most likely look best in a dark wash denim or a bright light wash not faded and muted. If you have blonde hair, it all depends.
With lighter brows and eyelashes and light colored roots your best choice is generally a lighter or mid-tone wash. If you have blonde hair and dark eyebrows and deeper roots, you can choose a darker wash as well. Well, if you're going to wear it with jeans I'd advice you to stick with every shade of denim your jeans are not.
It's not really a Canadian Tuxedo unless they're both the same shade. IMO, I think the look "looks" best when you pair a "worn in" jacket, like this with a pair of dark jeans. I sort of have a thing for denim jackets, so I have a beat to hell one, a dark indigo selvedge, black, brown, and sort of a grey-ish brown corduroy one, so not matter what bottoms I'm wearing I have a jacket that looks good. I realize that's a little excessive It depends upon your hoodie or whatever layering colour. I would say light blue distressed could work but you'd have to give it a try yourself.
Black jeans work well with light blue denim jacket so indigo should do alright. As long as there's even a little bit of difference in color between jeans and jacket it's all good. I've always worn a light denim jacket with really dark denim jeans.

I like both, but i rarely go to the extreme end of the spectrum for either. Well, i do have a pair of white jeans that i wear with a chambray shirt very occasionally like, once this summer and i don't know if i own any black denim that fits anymore.
Rathbone , Aug 22, This is the style forum not the fashion forum. Dark jeans are 'in fashion' currently but when they eventually wash out light are we supposed to throw them out just because some numbskull in paris or Milan or wherever says they aren't 'in'? I do think dark jeans can get you into a more dressed up event than light jeans, but as discussed recently on here, dark jeans with a navy blazer look too close in colour. I have all Levis - a couple dark pairs, a couple washed out which look fine when I'm on the Harley, and one white for summer holidays.
Today I saw a fella aged in his forties, wearing yellow dress shirt with cuff links and open neck, checked sports jacket like a glen plaid, and dark jeans with 'designer' fraying from the crotch to the knees on both legs, and brown dress shoes. I have no idea what he was thinking with these hideous things on his legs but its the worst fashion felony I've seen in a while.
Ianiceman , Aug 22, NOBD , Aug 22, Darker are easier at the moment, light jeans can be done but are harder to avoid looking dated or like 'dad jeans' Sanguis Mortuum , Aug 22, I'll have to side with darker on this one. Perhaps there is an age divide, though. Most 'in-the-know' fellas my age I see are opting for dark including myself. Most older, conservative dressing men I encounter seem to wear traditional denim color or lighter. It could also be thanks to President Obama's "mom jeans" moment at the WhiSox game some time ago - E Embargo63 , Aug 22,
This means pairing a light washed blue denim jacket or shirt with dark blue, black or grey jeans. You can do it the other way around with dark washes on top and lighter on the bottom, but I find that it looks better the first way as darker colours are more slimming on the bottom, creating a much nicer illusion to your proportions.
