Strolling the chic streets of London to Selfridges yesterday in skinny jeans, a white tank paired with a denim jacket I randomly picked out of my closet I thought silently to myself “I don’t wear denim jackets ever but this looks good. I should blog about it” Not long after I spotted stylish Londoners in playsuits, harem pants and maxi skirts all covered up in a denim jacket! It was a clear indication that our summer wardrobe should include a denim jacket which I’ve dubbed the cool luxe cover-up!

Countless celebrities such as Nicole Richie, Rachel Bilson, Blake Lively, Reese Witherspoon, Ashley Tisdale, Emma Roberts, Chloe Sevigny, Jessica Alba and a lot more have added a denim jacket to their daytime look for the perfect cool luxe touch. Anything from hooded, cropped, studded or light acid wash denim jackets are totally on the fashion radar. Team with skinny jeans and ballet pumps for an off duty look.

Go for a trendy style and wear yours with a maxi dress or skirt on a breezy summer day out. Add more interest to your night-out frock and cover up with a denim jacket instead of a blazer. Roll ‘n’ roll meets style is how I’d describe what a denim jacket does for an overall look. If you’re not a huge fan but still want to try it buy a denim shirt and wear it buttoned down with a tank inside. Head over to ASOS for some inexpensive denim pieces under £6o! I really love this style of dressing, it’s so effortlessly chic.
