If you’re feeling brave and want to try something a little different, then double denim is going to be your go-to. Now, there are SO many different ways that you can rock double denim, depending on how much of a statement you want to make. For a more subtle take on the look, you can go for the much-loved all-black outfit, pairing black skinny jeans with a distressed style black jacket.

We have all got to admit; Autumn is one of the hardest seasons to dress for, it’s freezing in the morning, but then by the afternoon it’s warmed up. So what do you choose? To be cold on your way out or too warm later on in the day? But let’s not speak too soon, we have the perfect solution, and of course, it comes in the form of a denim jacket combo. As the temperatures start to drop, pairing your favourite cosy knitwear with a denim jacket for that extra layer of warmth is the ideal A/W look. It’s all about lightweight layering, making it super easy to adapt to the weather throughout the day, all in just one essential outfit!
If you’re hoping to experiment with layering up but not 100% convinced on bringing out the knitwear, then simply swap your jumper for a hoodie. This can then be complete with jeans or even joggers, depending on your plans for the day. Our favourite outfits are all about versatility, and this look definitely fits the role!

So you have been invited to an event, but the dress code is unclear. You’d be underdressed in an everyday outfit but way too overdressed in a blazer, what’s your solution? You guessed it, a denim jacket, but just jazzed up a little. Depending on your go-to look, your denim jacket can be paired with jeans and a shirt or even smart trousers and a knit jumper – it’s all about trying different combinations until you find one that works.
The key to nailing the smart but relaxed look is to balance your textures and colours. Your denim jacket is casual right? So your next item should be tailored, whether this may be the shirt or trousers. Your colour choices should also complement each other – for example, your black denim jacket isn’t going to look right with your tan tailored trousers, but it will look great with a white shirt and black skinnies. Once again, it’s all about trial and error!
