The first thing that you will notice when looking at these tops is that they are very popular among many different styles of jeans – whether they are straight, baggy or boot cut.

In fact, even the boot cut styles make use of an acid-washed denim top! They have become so popular that many companies now sell them under their own labels and at discount prices, due to their popularity.

The reason why this type of denim shirt looks good with a denim jacket is that they both compliment each other. The way that the denim is cut means that the jacket can sit comfortably on the body and still be comfortable.

Also, it provides for a very clean, fresh look to the person wearing it. This means that there are numerous colours and styles available when choosing denim shirts.

Firstly, you should take into consideration the colour of the denim shirt. If you are someone who has a lot of darker skin, then you should steer clear of colours such as black, dark blue and charcoal. These colours tend to bleed onto the upper portions of the body, making them look quite unflattering.

You should stick to light colours. Generally, the rule of thumb is that if a particular blue or brown looks good on someone else, then it will look good on you too.

A light blue or brown will look good on anyone, regardless of their complexion type. So long as the top doesn’t have too many patterns or too many different colours, then it will look perfect on you.

If you are someone who does not have a lot of skin in the top part of your body, then consider going for a solid white. This will also work well with a number of different types of jeans including skinny jeans.

If you are looking to add some colour to the top part, then consider having your top dyed a bright shade of red or purple. This will help pop out the contrast between the top and the rest of your outfit.

If you don’t want your denim shirt to show any lines or seams, then you should consider getting a pre-distressed design. There are plenty of shops that can create customised looks for you, including those based online.
