The denim jacket—your summer style staple

Who’d have thought we’d still need coats in July? Yep, it’s supposed to be mid-summer yet we’re reaching for the socks rather than the sarongs, and that means we need a stylish yet practical summertime jacket to see us through this in-betweeny stage. Well, what about a denim jacket? They’re everywhere at the moment and could be just the thing to keep you covered whilst giving a fashionable edge, and once you invest it’ll become your style staple all season long.

If denim jackets give you flashbacks to 90s fashion crimes, fear not—these jackets are all about being fitted, chic and oh-so-stylish. They’re perfect for a range of situations and come in plenty of styles to suit—you could go for a traditional look or perhaps want a mini version for something even more summery, but whatever you do make sure to keep it fitted and you can’t go wrong. The best part about this style is that a single denim jacket can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion necessary, whether you want a casual cover-up or need an outfit with a more sleekly sophisticated edge, with denim being incredibly versatile and ideal for all body shapes too.

There are plenty of ways to wear this trend—keep it ultra-summery by teaming with a maxi dress and some sandals, or go chic with some skinny jeans (preferably a different colour/material to avoid denim overload), a gorgeous top, a pair of heels and some statement jewellery for the perfect weekend drinks look. And, not only can a denim jacket be great for these less-than-summery days, but when the sun does finally come out it can be perfect for evenings too—we all know how quickly the temperature can change but with a denim jacket by your side you’ll be able to cover up when the sun goes in yet can still keep your perfectly polished look. So what are you waiting for? Be on the lookout for a denim jacket and you’ll have the perfect coat to see you through the season and beyond.
