Four Ways to Wear a Denim Jacket for Men

The denim jacket is slowly becoming a wardrobe staple for men and women alike. A perfect transitional piece, it can be worn in cold weather, warm weather and those days in between. It is versatile, lending itself to a variety of different styles.

Out in the Cold

Layering is the key to a winter denim jacket look. A thick, stiff jacket works well layered over a cable knit or a polo neck jumper. If you’re still cold, then pop a parka on over the top. A pair of heavier trousers and a pair of leather boots on and you’re ready to take on the elements. A beanie hat would also work well.

Smart Casual Denim     

Shirt and tie with either a thin crew neck or v-neck jumper works really well for a smart casual look. Paired with dress trousers or beige chino and a loafer or oxford brogue, this look has an interesting twist with the more rough and ready denim jacket. Wear for a bit of a twist on a classic.

In Between Days

Add interest and a pop of colour with a jumper underneath your denim jacket and a scarf at your neck. Wear with a pair of grey chinos and suede desert boots for an outfit that will save you from the hardiness of winter and the subtleness of spring.

Double Denim Danger

When done well, double denim can look very stylish. Done badly, and it reeks of 90s boy band horror. The way to pull it off is to make sure that your denim is of different shades. Go dark for your jeans and light for your jacket, keeping it all well fitted and simple. Go for a plain t-shirt and embrace minimalist stylings.

Coloured Denim

When the sun is shining, denim jackets works perfectly, and if you’re feeling especially brave, you could even go for one in colour. Pair with a striped tee, shorts and a pair of canvas shoes for a timeless English Riviera summer look. Check out Oi Polloi for some stylish jackets from Our Legacy here

Hardwearing and masculine, a denim jacket will last you seasons upon seasons. For great wear-ability, get a jacket in both dark, light and colour and enjoy denim in a variety of different ways. A denim jacket instantly transforms any outfit and updates it for the new season of menswear.
