How to wear black denim jackets

Wear a light-coloured t-shirt or jumper with your black denim jacket so your outfit doesn’t look dark or monotonous. Make sure your trousers don’t exactly match your black denim jacket and mix very different colours if you want to try double denim. Minimal trainers or casual boots go well with a black denim jacket at any time of the year.

Cool and casual

It's hard to beat a thick knitted jumper and a lined jacket as an easy, throw-on option. If you're going heavy on the blue up top, switch it up with some green chinos.

Break up your denim

Double denim sounds scary, but it doesn’t need to be. It’s actually really easy to pull off if you break it up with a contrasting colour. A graphic tee is a worthy option that still evokes an edgy vibe.

Double denim the easy way

The easiest way to pull off double denim is to do it in darker colours. That way, it looks more 'lead singer', less 'off-duty cowboy'.

Not just for cowboys

A denim jacket paired with simple knitwear, chinos and brown leather boots nods to rugged cowboy style, but in a way that doesn't look out of place in a more urban environment.

Seasonal smart casual

A denim jacket isn't always the warmest choice, so add a scarf for extra cosiness. A pair of leather work boots brings a smarter finish to a casual t-shirt and chinos.

Break up monochrome

Make a largely monochrome look more interesting by interrupting it with a single colour. This will keep the outfit from looking too uniformed – plus, we always advocate introducing a little bit of colour.

A new way to do double denim

Mixing black and blue denim stops you from looking matchy-matchy and gives you different tones to play around with. The striped tee and white trainers break up the head-to-toe effect.

A double-denim update

This is how to do double denim the subtle way. The gilet and the white tee break up the denim, so it just looks like a laid-back look and not a Canadian tuxedo.
