Men’s Denim Jacket Style Guide & Tips

Men's Denim Jacket Guide For Summer

My Denim Jackets: All Saints In Grey | !Solid In Rust | Cheap Monday In Black

One trend I really love for Summer, and for Spring and even Autumn for that matter is the denim jacket. When thinking about denim jackets, it’s definitely more of a warm weather item of clothing, which means it’s time to put away the overcoats and Winter Coats, and pair up some of your warm weather wardrobe with this jacket style when it gets a bit chilly, or when you just want to style up an outfit.

It can be a bit of a trend for some, especially something like double denim which is a look which has a love/hate tag to it, but there’s a few things you can do to avoid this kind of look, or embrace it if that’s your thing. I’m going to talk about everything to do with jean jackets, from how to style them to what to wear with them, including footwear and other clothing.

Are you ready? Let’s Go!

Men’s Summer Fashion Tips – Sweat Shorts [UPDATED 2017]

mens-sweat-shorts-1

UPDATED FOR 2017

Sweatpants have been thought of for a long time as super casual, and of course they can be worn for a laid back and chilled out style. However more recently we’ve seen a resurgence in sport luxe fashion, with higher end menswear brands showcasing their take on the trends, with casual tops and bottoms including more stylish, better cut sweat pants and joggers. From that comes the summer trend of sweat shorts, and it’s something I really like and have embraced.

You may remember I got a few pair of sweat shorts from H&M a short while ago, and I really like them. At only £8 a pair you can’t go wrong, and they are good quality with a really nice fit. The summer season is here, and other fashion labels and brands have an array of sweat shorts ready for you to buy, in a range of colours and styles.

Suede Jackets For Autumn – This Season’s Trend

As you’ll have read in my Spring Suede Jackets guide, I love a good soft leather jacket. They’re not only perfect for Spring, but they’re a great style of jacket to wear in the Autumn too. As you’ll know, suede is a type of leather which has a napped finish, with lamb and goat most commonly used, with calf and even deer also being used. The jackets are usually pretty tough and thick, which means wearing one of these in the Autumn is a really good go to piece, with a lot of styles and colours now available. The enemy of suede is rain and water, although you can get suede protectors which will do a good job if you get caught out in the rain.

As with every piece of clothing, there’s plenty of choice at all different price-points. Typically with leather jackets, a genuine suede jacket will start at around £100, and from there goes upwards to whatever your wallet can afford! Grab a high street label such as Mango or Topman for under £150, premium high street brands such as Reiss or Ted Baker will come in at £200 – £400, and luxury and designer brands like Burberry and Tom Ford will run into the thousands.

A suede jacket can be looked at as a good investment, and should last you plenty of Autumn and mild Winters to come, providing you look after it well enough. They’re timeless, so you don’t have to worry about them going out of style, one to your wardrobe or expanding it with a different colour or style is something to consider.

Here’s over 30 of the best suede jackets for this season, from the high street and luxury brands, there’s something for everyone’s budget.

Scarves, Cardigans Jumpers and T Shirts

Featuring: ,

Hello blog readers!

I have been so busy lately so i havent been able to show you some of the things i got…I got these last week, some things which i love, and one which i sent back. I got 2 snoods, a cardigan, a jumper, a t shirt and a silk scarf for the summer. Here are the things:

The thing i love the most which i got. Its a light blue cardigan by All Saints. I love this brand, its a cool high street brand. Its a very nice, fine cardigan, maybe a little on the long side, but i like that in some ways.

Blue jumper from Gabacci. I think this will look good with a shirt underneath, its probably more of a winter look but might aswell of got this in, i hardly ever buy jumpers or sweatshirts.

A polo shirt from Gabacci. I never bought anything from this brand before, these 2 things were the first 2 i have bought. I like the look of this top, its a polo with buttons all the way down, and it has the look of a shirt but since its a polo its far more comfortable. It is quite small fitting.

2 Snoods from ASOS are definatly for the winter. These were on sale so i got them while i could. I got a black one last year which i like, i think having a red one will be a good contrast with other clothing and look good.

A silk scarf from Simon Carter. This is more of a summer scarf, an accessory rather than a real “scarf” if you know what i mean. I will probably wear it with a more plain shirt to give it more of a look. I’m not sure how i will tie it, or if i will have it loose, i guess it will depend on how i want to look at the time 🙂

This is a 3/4 length sleeve Vilain cardigan. It was combed cotton which i did not like, and also the neck made me look like a doctor or something. I wish i took a pic but i didnt, it looked stupid. I have sent this back now. Its a shame because i wanted to get a white cardigan for the summer, i am getting into more lighter colours this year.
