Nothing is more hard working than denim, so don't be afraid to double up on the good stuff. Read our guide below to ensure a modern take.
Whether you choose a jacket/skirt or jacket/jeans combo, keep the lines clean, sharp and structured and the wash dark. Think of it as a suit and add a simple shoe like a Teva or a slider to round it off.
Add interest with detail.
If the thought of double fills you with dread, look for some interest like embroidery, to break up the lines and provide some 'breathing space'. The Sideline Pia jacket gives you that along with a kimono shape that works to balance out the skinny denim you probably already own, or choose a denim culotte to add interest and volume.
Choosing a light hue to sit alongside your jacket creates the same effect as above by breaking up the expanse of blue wash. Try the Samsoe boyfriend jean in natural which works as a hard working summer neutral but can be carried into next season with grey cashmere and boots.
