I wear it with coloured skinny jeans, a t shirt and light weight scarf, over a floral summer dress, with knee length and maxi skirts. With chinos or cropped trousers. You can wear them with most things IMO, but I don't do double denim. I got my latest one in Dorothy Perkins last year.
i just bought a denim jacket from zara. i think they are a classic tbh, have tried it on with lots of stuff and think with maxi dresses, or white jeans and a breton, it looks really good. oh also thinking of wearing with simple tee and a floaty skirt. i wouldn't personally wear with blue jeans - too b*witched for me! - but everything else is fair game.
Have just bought myself a new one from river island, it's a bit lighter than your link, I tend to wear them a lot once it warms up, with leggings, chinos, dresses and even denim as long as its black or very dark,i think double denim is only a crime when the denims are close in shades.
I'm looking for a basic demin jacket to wear with dresses in the summer (I'm thinking dress, denim jacket and converse if that sounds ok? I'm dreadful at putting outfits together). It'll have to be a cheap high street one though, like New Look or Dorothy Perkins.
I think lighter is better personally- feels more fashionable, but still classic. Mine will be coming out again, think it was a new look version from last year. Be careful of the length, though- lots of them are slightly cropped, which looks great with dresses, but not so with trousers, unless you're super skinny.
