How to wear a denim jacket

The Denim Jacket

You can't beat a denim jacket when it comes to pulling together an off -duty look as this sports inspired outer jacket can be simply thrown over any ensemble to give any outfit a relaxed feel .
The 80's inspired outwear made a reappearance over the summer in a new alternative style to give your go to day time frocks an alternative look and show you how staple items like denim can be reworn no matter what season.

How to Wear a Denim Jacket

The beauty of a this throwover is that it will retain forever be a wardrobe staple item worth investing in especially if you'd like a jacket with character. As this A/W distressed denim and embroidery jackets make a return on the high street hangers as these outwear pieces aim to encourage you to create some quirky layered looks by mixing up these rock n roll  inspired designs with colourful knitwear and folk frocks. Shoes wise go with what you're comfortable with whether that's a classic chelsea boot or a pair of high top converse you can't go wrong when it comes to reworked vintage items.

The Denim Jacket Fit

To achieve the boyfriend look you need to aim to get a jacket a size bigger than what your usual size as the jean material can be fairly restrictive on your shoulders and waist . Therefore it’s important to get the fit spot-on as the outwear item should sit comfortably on your body and have the same slimming effect as a biker or bomber jacket.


A light blue denim jacket, the colour of ‘working jeans’, is the staple. Darker blues shades make the jacket a little smarter, and you can find coloured denim to add a little ‘cool’ to your look.
Grey denim jackets are a great alternative to black.  However with an embroided jacket, you can switch things up a bit as the feminie print gives the light wash material more styling options.
