Denim on Denim
It is apparent that we are in a time of higher popularity for denim jackets, jeans that match your desired occasion and shirts which make you stand out from the crowd but when and more importantly, how should you rock your denims?
Strolling into the office in jeans is a bold choice however you can remove any risk of looking “too casual” by getting the right wash and teaming them with a smart jacket. Keep the tones dark, indigo & black would work perfectly, and match well with a suitable dark blazer and white shirt combo. Adding a tie will make it clear that you mean business. Footwear should be comfy and smart yet stylish. Opt for a robust round-toed shoe (preferably in black) with a chunky weighted sole to accompany your smooth denims.

The iconic jean jacket is back! What this means is that if you’re thinking of trying a denim jacket, there’s one out there just waiting for you. Born from the rugged individualism of the American West, the jean jacket is now most definitely in its heyday. A lighter jean jacket will get you through the chillier summer days and a vintage Levi’s jacket with a sherpa lining will help to keep you warm throughout the winter. A denim jacket is most definitely a fashion statement all year round.
When donning the denim, think about what sort of look you want to achieve. If the likes of James Bay and Harry Styles are your fashion inspiration, then opt for a size or two bigger than your usual. This helps add a raw edge and rule-breaker attitude to your outfit. However, if you’re going for the Calvin Klein model sort of look then a dark-denim, fitted jacket will help you entice the ladies.

Last but not least, the denim shirt. During the fluctuating temperatures of autumn and to avoid sweating to death or dying from the cold your wardrobe takes a little planning. The simple solution is to layer and what better way to do this than with a delightful denim? Now, this can be done in two ways, the first is to pick a tee of your choice (white or black typically works best) with an unbuttoned denim shirt to accompany. This means if you start to feel like you’re living in the Antarctic, you can button up and you have instantly gained a second layer. The second is to sport a denim shirt (leaving the top 2-3 buttons undone) alongside a warm coloured cable-knit jumper. This works really well with colours like burgundy and dark brown and will help keep you wrapped up if the weather takes a turn for the worse.
