We all know the perennially cool status of the humble jean, and how every single denim piece in our wardrobe is worn to within an inch of its indigo existence.

From the denim shirt to those go-to skinnies and that can’t-dress-without-it short; these are all cult classics we couldn’t possibly imagine donating to the nearest charity shop.

But there are a few denim guises that may have, what you call, slipped the net, and one that particularly comes to mind is the denim jacket. An afterthought for many denim lovers, the infectious double denim trend has pushed aside this ideal summer cover-up (with the denim shirt taking to the throne), and we’ve since seen it make a come back in a more novel light (see: J Brand for Christopher Kane, and more recently, Mary Katrantzou x Current Elliot).

So, to revive its rightful status as a summer wardrobe staple, we’re celebrating the easy cover-up in its most desirable form: the J Brand 403 Destructed Jacket. And it’s not so difficult to style either. In fact here are two easy and super-stylish ways you can wear the denim jacket from day to night. Just add a slouchy black tee to both looks, and you’re good to go!

am look: Punctuate an off-duty look with a dose of denim, by pairing the 403 Destructed Jacket with bold skinnies, and statement boots. A gold watch will finish the look nicely.

pm look: Add a dash of dancefloor-appropriate glamour, by teaming the 403 Destructed Jacket with a printed mini and metallic heels. Just add a boxy cross-body bag for carrying essentials.

J Brand 403 destructed denim jacket, £233.57, available at J Brand.
