Regardless of the ebb and flow of the seasons and runway shows, however directional the zeitgeist may be, there’s one outerwear piece that bucks every trend: the trusted denim jacket. A transitional savior, its styling options are infinite, looking just as good thrown over a printed dress as it does layered under a longline winter coat.

This season, the jacket’s fashion kudos has been kicked into a higher gear: try Alexander McQueen for deconstructed designs or Acne Studios’ belted, oversized, boxy or cropped versions. For a magnificently modern take on the Canadian tuxedo, make Italian designer Giorgia Tordini your styling inspiration and team it with a co-ordinating denim midi skirt.
