Three ways to dress up your denim
Though jeans have long been a staple of the casual canon, modern-day pairings with dressier separates have promoted them considerably in the contemporary gentleman’s wardrobe - the right jacket and matching shades can easily up the style quotient.
For a leisure time look, layering is key. A button-down jean shirt subtly sidesteps the often hazy denim-on-denim debate by peeking out from under a cotton crepe hoodie in a varying shade of blue while a khaki jacket with leather details ups the elegance factor. Add in a pair of eye-catching sneakers to complete the look.
For a more defined contrast, pair your favorite denim with a white button-down and an ever-classic navy double-breasted blazer in cotton with a knit effect, perfect for a Casual Friday in Spring or a seaside outing.
Try a tone-on-tone approach in a unique blend of fabrics – a stretch Nappa leather jacket with slit pockets offers the perfect outerwear alternative, contrasting interestingly with the cotton shirt’s abstract, geometrical motif.
