5 Ways To Style A Men’s Denim Jacket

Denim jackets are one of the most diverse pieces of clothing you can buy, making it a men’s wardrobe essential. It can be dressed up or down for any occasion and you can buy a denim jacket at a price to suit any budget. If you’re looking for a new addition to your wardrobe, look no further than the denim jacket!

Look 1 – Black Ripped Jeans and Black T-Shirt

If you’re ever struggling with knowing what to wear, you can’t go wrong with an all black outfit finished off with a blue denim jacket. Opt for ripped jeans to help break the outfit up slightly and  a simple black crew neck t-shirt. Having a denim jacket with a fur lined collar can also help to break up the outfit and add extra detail. Black Chelsea boots are a great shoe if you need to be dressier, otherwise a black trainer with a white outsole would also look great.

Look 2 – Layered With A Hoodie

For those people who like to be comfortable, pair your denim jacket with a mens full tracksuit. The denim jacket completely transforms how the tracksuit looks to create an effortless look. Pair with smart trainers for a great casual look that is ideal for brunch out or meeting up with friends. For something slightly dressier, swap out the joggers for black jeans and keep the hoodie layered with the denim jacket.

Look 3 – Bright T-Shirt and Black Jeans

Pairing a bright coloured t-shirt with a denim jacket can work really well. Having that small section of the t-shirt peeking through makes a statement without being overwhelming. Plus, the black jeans help to tone down the colour. With a blue denim jacket, pastel hues work really well. Just try to avoid blues unless you’re feeling confident as it is easy to go wrong!

Look 4 – Black Turtleneck and Checkered Trousers

A smart look can be achieved by pairing your denim jacket with smart checkered trousers and a black turtleneck. This is the ideal outfit for a night out as it isn’t too dressy, but it definitely makes you look like you’ve made an effort, especially when worn with smart black brogues. If you’re a fan of brighter colours, then a smart white shirt would also work really well. This combination of smart with slightly rugged makes the ideal mens streetwear look.

Look 5 – White T-Shirt and Chinos

An outfit that is great for summer evenings is tan coloured chinos, a white crew neck t-shirt and a denim jacket. Until it gets cooler your outfit will look great, but it will get even better when it’s colder and you put the jacket on! Make sure that your chinos are slim or skinny fit as there is nothing worse than baggy chinos.
