5 ways to wear a denim jacket

Our new style crush for 2015 is the denim jacket.  Mine is still in the wardrobe from its last outing in c.2004 but I'm determined to give it a style refresh and make it a summer staple.  Put away the leather bike jacket...denim is back in town.

Style 1: City Cool

Inspirations: Miranda Kerr Untitled design-9 Miranda Kerr always looks great, but we particularly love this outfit.  Pair a blue wash denim jacket with a soft and floaty mini skirt and high collared shirt.  Perfect for transitioning from spring to summer.

 Style 2: The Custom Crop 

 Inspiration: Selena Gomez Untitled design-10 This is a great way to refresh an older or vintage style denim jacket...you have to be brave but if you're willing, get the scissors out and create a cropped jacket.  We love the exposed fraying along the bottom edge and collar - you can emphasise this by using wire brush along the edges for extra impact.  Team with high waisted jeans or trousers and killer heels.

Style 3: The Maxi Combo

Style Inspiration: Jessica Alba Untitled design-11 For a relaxed look, floaty maxi dresses or skirts work really well with a structured denim jacket.  We love how Jessica has used differing shades of blue in her outfit, adding an orange colour pop with her nail varnish.  Try buttoning up the jacket to create more of a shirt effect; this gives your outfit a fresh twist.

Style 4: Light Wash

Inspiration: Rosie Huntington-Whitely Untitled design-13 Perfect for summer. Go for a lighter shade of denim for a more casual look but team with a structured pencil skirt and cami-top to get a classic look.

Style 5: 80s vibe

Inspiration: January Jones

January Jones can do nothing wrong in our eyes.  Go for a less structured and longer denim jacket like this one and pair with skinny trousers or leggings.  Finish with a delicate heel and carry bag.  We also love for hair in this image; a relaxed bob. She is the epitome of style.  If you are going to festivals this year, try this style of jacket with tailored shorts and a loose shirt for a relaxed look.
