The denim jacket
The denim jacket. I had to turn my house upside down in order to dig out my denim jacket. Does that sound normal? The denim jacket for me was a must have a few years ago and then it somehow got pushed to the back of my wardrobe. I knew I would never throw it out: how did I know it would always come back into fashion? I just knew. So yes, I found it again! You will have seen it recently in my Fashion Week looks. The denim jacket is something you should choose in the right style for you, but it’s best to go for a basic and simple one that will always be chic and be coveted by all. But how should you choose the perfect jacket, and how should you wear it?
Denim jacket: how to choose it, wear it and personalise it
- IDEAL FOR TRANS-SEASONAL DRESSING: the denim jacket is perfect for mid-season. The denim protects you from the cold, especially when worn with a thin sweater underneath and a chunky scarf (perfect for the weather we’re having at the moment)
- FOR WHEN IT’S VERY COLD: if it’s really cold and your denim jacket is quite light-weight, try layering it under a winter coat (see inspirational photos in the gallery below)
- CUSTOMISE IT: If you’re creative and good with your hands, it’s a great idea to customise or personalise your denim jacket. In the photos below you can find some inspiration! Another idea? During Fashion Week in September I was chatting about this with my friend who is also a blogger. She had an amazing denim jacket, completely covered with embellishments. Words, flowers, animals, symbols, emojis… everything! Find patches in markets or online. It’s a great idea! (If you find any letters, you could write your name across the back!)
- OVERSIZED: a must for denim jackets this year is that the size should be extra large, so stela one from your man. This is perfect for this season’s grungey look. Black trousers, perhaps in leather, a logo tee and black sunglasses make for the perfect look. Try it!

Love denim jackets, especially in Autumn!

Proposte molto interessanti… intendo quelle per l’inverno… io sono molto freddolosa e ormai mi ero rassegnata a salutare il mio giubbotto di jeans per riesumarlo in primavera.. :-)
Io non l’ho mai amato molto fino a quest’anno…ne ho trovato uno che mi sta perfettamente e vorrei customizzarlo con spille, perle ecc…
Un capo che non può mancare nell’armadio!!!
Passa a trovarmi VeryFP
Un classico, durante la mezza stagione non esco mai senza!
The denim jacket is the coolest item by excellence giving every outfit some hip young & fresh credentials wearing mine here http://www.cleancutgoutchic.com/weekend-getaway-escapade-a-eastbourne/
Io l’ho sempre adorato il giubotto di jeans!
Vero, non passerà mai di moda.
Bellissimo il giubbino di Levis e adoro il look di Sincerly Jules.
Ho sempre amato il giubbino in jeans e ora che è tornato di moda è il mio migliore amico!!!

Ciao! Vorrei sapere dove posso trovare cappotto beige nella foto del post . Grazie! È sempre un piacere seguirti! Un bacio
molto belle le giacche extra large, appunto per questo volevo sapere dove si possono comprare..
Decisamente un evergreen immancabile! Lo uso tantissimo in primavera/estate, in autunno però preferisco il giubbino in pelle…
Scusa, sai dove posso trovare delle giacche in denim oversize?
Ciao cara, prova su asos.it :) un bacio
