Three ways to wear a denim jacket

Category: fashion and beauty

One of the most versatile wardrobe staples for anyone is denim – here’s how you can take this statement piece from the morning school run to a special date night.

A great denim jacket is an enduring wardrobe staple; it really comes into its own in autumn/winter as an indispensable layering piece and an easy way to add contemporary edge to any outfit. Consider investing a little more on a good quality jacket and in a cut and wash that suits your shape and style. Here are three of our favourite ways to wear it this season.

Smarten up your morning casual

Throwing on your favourite denim jacket is just about the easiest way to smarten up your go-to morning school-and-errand-run outfit. Whether over your gym gear, favourite trackies or loose printed pants, the jacket will polish up whatever you have time to throw on in the bustle of getting the kids out the door for school in the morning; it’s also perfect for the run to your local Stockland to do the grocery shopping, grab a morning coffee with your friends or as you hit the gym.

Team with a pretty dress for lunch with the girls

Make your favourite day dress both a little warmer and a little edgier by adding a denim jacket and statement accessories. It works especially well over both floral print and monochrome dresses like this one from Paper Scissor, which features prominently in this season’s trends.

Add some rock-glam to your night out

Whether you’re going to a friend’s place, out for dinner, a concert or just to the pub, there’s no better way to add some old-school rock ‘n’ roll glam to your favourite going-out outfit than by adding a denim jacket. Styled with black pants or jeans, your favourite silky top, great heels, and a statement necklace or some bangles, a denim jacket will add edge to your ensemble without trying too hard.
