An underrated wardrobe staple, the denim jacket has been on the cover-up backburner in previous seasons, usurped by the plentiful supply of military jackets, bombers and leather bikers. Not for much longer…SS15’s denim trend has created plenty of comebacks, one of the most significant being the jean jacket – and we couldn’t be more pleased to see our old faithful back in the spotlight.
If yours has long been languishing at the back of your closet, now is the time to rediscover it (or snap up a new one), as we count down five ways to wear this wardrobe staple.
1. Throw it on over your shoulders like a cape for a nonchalant vibe. Just take cues from the Fashion Week style set.
2. Team a dark-wash jacket with floaty pieces – think pleated skirts, culottes, or wide-leg trousers – in pastel shades for a boy-meets-girl mix.
3 . Button it up and don a bedazzled necklace over the top (á la Jenna Lyons of J.Crew) to make a statement come sundown.
4. Roll up the sleeves of your jacket and team with a masculine shirt for a new take on ‘undone cool’.
5. Wear yours oversized with pared back neutrals if you hanker after the model-off-duty look.
