The humble denim jacket has a habit of taking a back seat, letting the ‘rock n roll’ attitude of its leather jacket friend take centre stage. Continually being reinvented (or just re-worn,) the denim jacket can provide an uplift to an otherwise recycled outfit, or provide a causal twist for something altogether more fancy. Every summer season the lightweight simplicity of denim is seen at festivals and social gatherings across the land, even being featured in top magazine shoots from the likes of Elle and Vogue. Denim doesn’t have to be boring, stonewashed or cut like a 90s throwback though – these jackets show that added detailing, modern shapes and unique colouring can make your denim stand out amongst the crowd. Why not wear a denim waistcoat, like this Mango number, or even add a biker twist like these studded creations from ASOS. Seen on everyone from Jessica Alba to Gwen Stefani, and Kate Moss inbetween, the denim jacket will keep you warm and stylish this summer – even if the weather isn’t quite maxi dress appropriate.
