The denim jacket has been around since the early 20th century, and throughout the years it has been changed around to suit the fashion of that moment, but nonetheless it reminds a staple piece in every wardrobe.

If you rock the denim jacket the right way, you'll make the most of your money, as it’s very practical and versatile. The denim jacket can be worn in every situation, and it’s a guaranteed way to look fashionable.


During the chilly weather, it can be tough to keep warm and stylish at the same time, that’s why laying up is essential when it comes to this look. A denim jacket might seem like the last thing you should reach for during winter but I disagree.

Pairing a plain black hoodie, black jeans and Timberlands with your denim jacket, will give you a relaxed but put together look. Hoodies are prefect for laying, not only for warmth but the hood will give your look that relaxed street style. This look gives your denim jacket a versatile tone, making it the perfect look from running errands in, to having a drink with the boys down the pub.

As the weather gets warmer during spring, you can have more fun with what to pair with your denim jacket. Spring is a light and chilled season, so for this look it’s essential to dress your jacket up with a neutral tone.

For a slick Spring look, opt for all white. A smart white shirt, beige chinos and white slip-ons will give the classic denim jacket a smart and polished look. This look is perfect for a date, as it gives that put together feel, with the denim jacket adding a casual tone to it. The ideal look to make the “I didn’t really try to get dressed, I’m just naturally fashionable” statement.

As the climate gets hot, it’s key to keep your style simple and breezy. You want to wear something that will not keep you restricted and overheated. Isn’t it the biggest buzz kill when you can't enjoy your day because of what your wearing? Fear no more, here is a comfortable look that will not only keep you stylish but ensure you are relaxed.

Shorts and vests are a dream in hot weather, they will ensure you stay cool and are also very practical too. What I love about this look, is that there isn't much thought put into it, but it still wins you fashionable points. The denim jacket is an easy piece to take off when you feel too hot, and put back on when the weather turns a little chilly.

Doesn’t autumn make you realise that we're not really built for the summer heat? Making us welcome the low temperatures of a crisp autumn morning with opened arms. After all, it's the season of rugby, Halloween, blankets, woolly jumpers etc.

How about embracing the beautiful colour change in the leaves by marrying a cream high neck hoodie with some tanned Colton chinos. And fortunately, (unfortunately for some) the world has not gotten over the distressed trousers/ jeans trend.

These tanned distressed chinos from Publish fit the current trend perfectly. Adding black Clarks originals shoes with your denim jacket to complete the look, will have you looking autumn ready. Not only are these shoes comfortable but a must have in your shoes collection, as Clarks never go out of style.
