Style Your Denim Jacket for Any Occasion
There’s always a simple pleasure in knowing there are pieces in your wardrobe like denim jackets that will never date. They seem to look good no matter the weather. With spring upon us and the warmer summer months around the corner, there comes a delicate dance of layering up in the morning when it’s cool and stripping off when it’s hot in the afternoon.
Spring is the denim jacket’s time to shine. It’s the perfect outerwear piece that fits comfortably between the seasons-in-a-day feeling. Denim jackets become that thin layer of warmth you need on a cool morning, while completing your outfit even if it’s a warm one.
Add a denim jacket to your capsule wardrobe. You’ll be able to layer, add, subtract and mix up for so many different occasions. Here’s how you can put together some perfectly paired outfits that will have your humble denim jacket seeing more of the outdoors this season than time spent in your wardrobe.
You’ll love this look for so many reasons, mainly because it brings together comfort and confident style into one! Want to be cool yet stunning on a first date? Pair your favourite denim jacket with your favourite stripes or a little black dress. Add your choice of cross-body bag, understated jewellery and low heeled kicks. You’re the ultimate cool-girl vibe in this and everyone knows it.
Feel Good Fridays
Whether the dress code at your work is a little lax or it’s casual only on Friday, you can still look professional even with a denim jacket in tow! All you need is a white dress or skirt for this look and add the jacket alongside those crisp white canvas shoes or sandals. You’ll be ready for the work day and comfortable when knock-offs come around!
Pair your favourite denim jacket with a clean, crisp white tee, black leggings, some understated jewellery and black cross-body bag to match. This is the ideal outfit for heading to the shops for some retail therapy, or catching up with friends for an oat latte!
Take your denim game to the next level, without looking like a Justin/Britney remake of the 2001 AMA’s red carpet! Take your jacket and mis-match the colour with your denim jeans. Ideally, your jacket is a few shades lighter or darker than the jeans.
Feeling lucky? Get super chic with a white denim jacket that will take you anywhere! You can pair almost anything you like with it, from blue denim jeans to dresses or even shorts, and still look effortlessly cool. Your choice of plain tee or bold patterned shirt can look amazing, whatever your style!
