Icons in Denim: Joan Jett




When it comes to that, “rock and roll” look, there is really no one that embodies the aesthetic like Joan Jett. We all know the story about The Runways from that movie that came out a couple of years ago (those of us who weren’t old enough to remember the 70’s.) But Jett had a career that extended that era. I personally remember songs like “I love Rock and Roll” as some of the anthems of the 80’s. Looking back at her style, she really owned the moto jacket, skinny jeans and tee look. Her hair and eye makeup gave her a punk look that only she could pull off. But what really made it was that she had a vulnerability. Maybe it was her soft face or her friendly smile. But for some reason I remember her to be a total badass. But maybe in reality she was also a sweetheart.

    Great blog and feature. Thank you for recognizing Joan Jett as an Icon in Denim. I’ve always felt she was one of the ultimate denim icons.
