Yay – it’s coming up to that time of year where the denim jackets can make a comeback. I LOVE my denim jackets and they are my go-to jacket in the Spring/Summer as they’re light but keep you warm if it’s a little windy – which is 90% of the time.

Sometimes it can be difficult to decide what to wear with a denim jacket as you have to decide whether to go double denim, or if you have other pieces that can work well with the denim look. Here are 4 ways that you can wear the denim jacket.

Also, the 2 jackets that are featured in this post are from Lidl a couple of years ago and they’re great! If you’re struggling to find some, here’s some similar to the ones that I have on.

Go Double Denim

I don’t know when it was decided that double denim wasn’t allowed because sometimes I think it looks really cool! Alexa on Instagram pieces together some great thrift finds and always looks great in double denim.

I think putting two different colours of denim together breaks it up a little bit so it’s not as striking of a double denim look. If I’m going typically casual, then I tend to just put a relaxed tee or a slogan tee underneath to keep the theme of casual going. And then, depending on what I feel like my feet can handle that day, I’ll choose a pair of comfy trainers to go with the look – my favourites at the moment are my *Adidas gazelles.

Denim Jacket and Black Skinnys

A denim jacket and some *classic black skinny jeans can look quite smart. I like the contrast between the two colours and it makes the denim blue pop a bit more.
Again, I’ll just pick a plain white tee, or a nice top that complements the denim well.

Denim Jacket and a White Tee

A simple white tee goes with anything so whether you’re going double denim or a bright bottom, a white tee can tie the look together.
I’ve also done the staple ‘French tuck’ here which I seem to be doing with all of my t-shirts lately – anyone else?

TIP: If going with a basic white tee, don’t be afraid to add a pop of colour with some earrings, necklace, or a bag.

Denim Jacket with a Hoodie

Maybe it’s not quite hot enough to go with a t-shirt. If not, pair a hoodie with your denim jacket to stay warm, and add some street style to your look. I love *this one that I got from H&M last year with little Mickey Mouse faces on it – it’s currently ON SALE for £11.99!

So that’s 4 ways that you can style a denim jacket this season – which look was your favourite?
