How to wear a denim jacket for any occasion

A denim jacket is a staple in many of our wardrobes but they can sometimes be difficult to style.

Can you wear two colours of denim? Are they too casual for some occasions? Can you wear denim on denim?

They are actually more versatile and wearable than you think.

Here are some styling tips to show how adaptable they are:

Brunch/Afternoon Tea with Friends

This is an occasion that can either be dressy or casual, so a denim jacket will suit perfectly. If the dress code is a bit more glam, you can still make it work.

A dark blue or black denim jacket with white skinny jeans, ankle boots and summery floral top is the perfect level of dressed up.


A Date

If you care about a date you are obviously going to put in some effort and dress up a bit. A cropped denim jacket paired with a bodycon dress and converse is the perfect balance of classy and casual and you'll be sure to impress!

To the Office

You might not consider a denim jacket office appropriate but we have to disagree. If it's styled well, a denim jacket is perfectly appropriate for most offices.

Pair a crisp, white denim jacket with black cigarette pants and a bright coloured, silk blouse to create a great look for any office.

For a Night Out


A tailored denim jacket can be a great look for a night out on the tiles, simply pair it with black high waisted jeans, a crop top and heels for a simple but always stylish look.

A blue denim jacket works well with dark jeans for this look.
