Denim jackets are a wardrobe staple, regardless of the season. They look good with almost anything and often complete an outfit. A few months ago, I bought a gorgeous denim jacket and at the time, I thought my collection was complete. Little did I know, I was wrong! Who would have guessed that the sherpa denim jacket would make another appearance in the fashion world?
Back when I was in school, my best friend had a sherpa denim jacket…and I didn’t. I always loved the jacket, but since I wasn’t nearly the fashionista that I am now, I didn’t bug my parents enough to actually buy me one. That might be the reason that I had to buy this particular jacket, when I saw it a few weeks ago at the Gap.
Random fun fact: My best friend has always referred to this style of jacket as the “Ice Cream Jacket.” It was only recently that I found out they were actually called, “Sherpa Jackets.” I asked my friend if she knew where the name came from, but we’re not sure. We think it’s either because she are ice cream while wearing that style of jacket, or more likely, she thought it looked like ice cream. Either way, she was little, so the name stuck.
