Update a classic - the Roxy shirt jacket

Is there a shape more classic than the original denim jacket? Styled with everything from a mini skirt to evening wear, it pairs easily with a multitude of outfits. But, like the classic white tee, a modern take on this wardrobe faithful can be even better.

The Roxy jacket is designed to take everything you love about the classic denim jacket and bring it right up to date, in a fabric that taps into the current western and natural finish trends, a colour that makes you look and feel amazing, and a fractionally neater fit than the old school boxy styles.

Created in a similar buttery soft faux suede to last season's bestselling Alexa jacket, the Roxy is double thickness to give a fraction more structure and warmth, without sacrificing the gorgeous softness and drape of this fabulous fabric.

I could honestly style this jacket 20 ways and not run out of options, but in the interests of you being able to get on with your day, I've limited myself to my four favourite outfits.


Roxy Shirt Jacket in Raspberry Red | Everyday Cotton Tee in Iced Hyacinth

Why mess with a classic look? Pair the Roxy jacket with jeans and a simple tee in your favourite colour for a timeless look that neatly avoids the double denim challenge of the original denim jacket.


Roxy Shirt Jacket in Blackberry | Silky Roll Neck in Delphinium | Tartan Skirt in Sweet Pea

Up the retro stakes with our neat checked mini-skirt and a silky roll neck. This outfit harks back to both 70s and 90s trends, but with a thoroughly modern update.


Roxy Shirt Jacket in Rich Navy | Suki Wrap Dress in Light Navy & Sea Foam

Give the pretty and feminine suki dress a laid back insouciance by pairing it with the casual Roxy jacket. For maximum dress-down chic, add a pair of sneakers too.

Keep it cosy as the weather turns fully into autumn with cosy layers.

This looks a super-stylish easy-to-wear piece and I love the range of Summer colours! I think two would do me nicely: the wonderful raspberry and the blackberry really appeal.

Well done, Kettlewell!
