an outfit staple - denim jackets.

Every girl struggles with a certain item of clothing or an accessory that they want to use to complete their look. Sometimes it is jewellery, sometimes it is shoes, but every outfit has that one piece that makes it unique and individual. For me, my favourite way to complete an outfit is by wearing a staple from my wardrobe. With all the colours, the prints and the madness that is going on in my outfit, bringing it all back down to earth with a staple adds that touch of originality, and a timeless piece such as a denim jacket, is the perfect way to do so.

Denim jackets have been around forever and there is no-one you can ask that can say they haven’t ever owned one. Recently, having a vintage style denim jacket has been on trend amongst young people. Vintage denim takes us back in time and adds a sense of the past to a look. You can wear them sleeveless, cropped or oversized, and still have a touch of edge and style with every outfit. They have also been modernised and put in contrast with other trends. You can find denim jackets with leather accents, colour blocked with different shades, and mixed with different materials; a new way to wear denim and to fit in with your personal style.

I find the best way to wear a denim jacket is to layer it with other pieces such as cardigans and button-up shirts. In my opinion, they can be dressed up or worn casually, depending on what you style it with. Pairing it with a plain or patterned tee gives off an effortless vibe, whereas with a pair of tailored trousers, you instantly look sharp and polished while forever on trend.

I like to get mine from stores such as New Look as they come in a range of sizes and styles, therefore I can always get one big enough to layer with, and find one to match any outfit. New Look know how to maintain style without losing any comfort, so I like to stick with a high street brand that I am familiar with. You will never walk the streets without seeing someone in denim, and you will always find one piece of denim somewhere on my outfit, so why not make a denim jacket your staple too?

  1. So true - denim jackets are the best. I like No. 5 the best. And you are so right about layering.
