Denim jackets are a really versatile garment that you can easily add to many outfits. Unless you are young and can carry off the ‘double denim’ look, avoid wearing denim with denim (most of us just aren’t cool enough to carry off the denim suit). Instead pair it with many of your other clothes to make the appear that little bit more casual or relaxed.
I love a denim jacket with a skirt. Sometimes a straight skirt can appear too “office” but adding a denim jacket will relax the outfit easily.
A denim jacket with your black pants and a white shirt or blouse will remove the feeling of office from the outfit.
Pop one over a floral dress for a slight rock chick edge.
Denim jackets are great for those cooler summer evenings or during the day in Spring and Autumn when you want an extra layer but not one that’s too warm.
When choosing your denim jacket. Look for features that will flatter your figure.
Personally I like really soft denim. If the denim is too hard and structured it won’t be as comfortable nor will it mold to your body as easily.
The classic style will suit many shapes. Just think about where the pockets are and what kind of detail is on the bust pockets. Added detail on the pockets such as flaps or embellishment will draw attention to your bust and make it look larger. If you have a large bust find a style that either has no bust pockets or really discreet ones.
Consider the bust pockets
What about pockets at the waist?
