Maybe you’ve worn it to death and think it’s old news, or maybe you’ve purchased a new denim topper and are wondering how to wear it. Here are four ways to make the most of your jacket—because denim never goes out of style.

For a sweet, girlish look with just a little edge, start with your favourite full-skirted dress and add ankle boots, a cross-body bag and cheeky jewellery. Top it off with your denim jacket, naturally.

Slip your denim jacket over your workout clothes after a stop at the gym, or style a look that includes jogger pants (with elasticized ankles) and slip-on sneakers. A colourful sweatshirt and leather tote add polish.

Embrace your inner Parisian by throwing on a striped tee and white jeans. A colourful scarf and flat patent slippers add a touch laid-back chic, while lock-and-key studs are tongue-in-cheek. A denim jacket will make this polished outfit more approachable.
