3 Ways To Wear a Denim Jacket

At the end of May I purchased this light wash denim jacket from Pagani. For my readers outside New Zealand, Pagani is comparable to River Island, Oasis and Miss Selfridge – high street fashion featuring the latest trends and styles at affordable prices. If I could describe my wardrobe it would be classic, comfortable and stylish (I try anyway). I have a lot of neutral pieces I can interchange but I also like colour.

Stylist notes:

  • Ten buttons
  • Silver hardware
  • Four front pockets
  • Relaxed, boxy fit
  • Cropped cut

The light wash is flattering against myย  fair skin and I do like the boxy, cropped fit of this jacket, it looks more tailored. I do have to roll the sleeves up but they aren’t too long. A denim jacket is one of those pieces that goes with just about everything and can be worn year round – I’ve constantly been wearing mine since I bought it.

Outfit #1: Day Date

Jacket: Pagani
Top: Glassons – Grey Merino Blend Boxy Jumper
Pants: Glassons – Black Ponte Pants

This outfit is my favourite of the three. I’d had my hair done the previous day and felt extra nice in it. I wanted to be comfortable and warm on the date as it was still the end of winter. Side note about the date: I met a guy for lunch. He seemed nice but neither of us felt a connection so it didn’t go anywhere. The jacket isn’t bulky and allows for layering so it was perfect. I paired it with a lightweight grey jumper and black pants.

Outfit #2: Floral Dress

Jacket: Pagani
Dress: Glassons – Floral High-Low Dress

This outfit would work year round, just add some stockings and cute boots! If I’m brave enough I will wear this outfit in summer with bare legs and sandals. Legs are the body part I like least about myself and worry about the most. My legs look bigger than other parts of my body and they are very pale so I have to be careful they don’t burn. I don’t fake tan and whilst I’m not embarrassed about my pale skin I do tend to cover up.

Outfit #3: Casual and Comfy

Jacket: Pagani
Top: Glassons – Black Merino Curve Blend Hem Jumper
Pants: Glassons – Navy Seal Ponte Pants

Outfit one and three are similar but I feel they are reflective of my style. Ponte pants are like leggings but they are thicker, warmer and just as comfortable. Like leggings they are elasticated and can be dressed up or down. I love navy as an alternative to black and it means I can wear black on my top half without wearing black head to toe – there’s nothing wrong with black but I do like the two tones of blue from the jacket and pants with this jumper. The jumper is also super stylish on it’s own, it has a curved hem and a small zip up the back. Both jumpers skim over my tummy which is a bonus!

    I love the light wash of your jacket and the way it looks soft and relaxed. I’ve seen and felt super hard, boxy jean jackets that really turned me off! My favorite outfit is the floral dress one. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope your next dates goes much better, at least you both knew from the get-go there wasn’t a connection!

        Aw, I read you are shy about your legs, which you shouldn’t be, but dresses with leggings are so cute, if you wanted to wear them more. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your luck WILL change, when the time is right!! โค

        I should look into a pair of leggings that look like tights but are slightly thicker and finish at the ankle – thanks for the tip! Usually the trouble I have is Iโ€™m short so dresses always fall lower on me haha

        I even like to wear dresses with thick leggings during the colder months, patterns & all! ๐Ÿ˜€ I only like the ones that finish at the ankle, too, though & I’m also a shortie so I feel your struggles!
