3 ways to style a denim jacket


1. Do try double denim


Cast aside any thoughts of Britney and Justin circa 2001, for 2018’s take on double denim is decidedly cooler. Brave the matching denim wash, but throw in an on-trend black waist belt to break up the colour and add shape to vintage cuts.

"It’s all in the match of denim wash here"

Soften the look with elegant, sheer blouses in spring colours, like this buttercup yellow one from Biba, and add heeled black ankle boots to smarten up the look.

2. Mix-and-match denim hues


Not ready to try the matching denim look? Instead, team your denim jacket with a jean in a darker hue for an easier-to-wear combination. While Lizzy opts for an indigo wash, she suggests teaming with black for easy daywear.

"The straight leg style here is key"

Still concerned you’ll feel like you’re stepping back in time? Switch up your usual skinny jean for a straight leg style. Eternally flattering, you can pair them with almost anything. Loafers, heels, trainers? Yes, yes, yes.

3. Dress down leather


Leather has become something of a wardrobe staple, but this winter the focus shifted from soft and supple to statement vinyl options. But, as Lizzy shows, a denim jacket can be the perfect way to tone things down.

“I went for a mix of textures for this look”

Finish off the look with a white t-shirt and casual white trainers, to make the look feel more every day, less Pretty Woman.
