How to style a denim jacket. I’m willing to go out on a limb and say that we all have at least one denim jacket hanging in our closets. For some of us it may be old and for others, brand new. I myself, have had many over the years. Some were light and worn and others stiff and a very dark blue. The one that’s currently hanging in my closet is a deep blue (probably my favourite shade) and cropped, but not too short. It also has some built-in stretch, which is very welcome when I wear it over thicker sweaters. I love the look of a denim jacket, so I’m always looking for great ways to make it work!
HOW TO STYLE A DENIM JACKET
Under a coat or blazer. This is one of my favourite looks. I want to be able to wear my jacket as long as I can, weather permitting. Keep in mind that this only works with a slim fitted jean jacket. Simply button your jacket all the way and slip a structured jacket over top. Voila! You now have a look that so many of us love, casual yet chic.
Pair it with sequins. We’ve already established that I love sequins for day or night, so how about adding a denim jacket into the mix? A sequined skirt, a denim jacket, some fabulous boots and a great bag? You just can’t go wrong.
With wide leg pants. I’m a sucker for a contemporary twist on great 70’s style outfits. I would definitely wear a denim jacket thrown over a turtle neck, wide leg trousers and a fabulous long statement necklace.
Lace and Denim. While I’ve always loved lace, it can sometimes be a little too girly for me. The simple way to solve this is to throw a denim jacket over top. It will downplay the feminine, while giving you a slightly edgier look.
The best feature of denim jackets is that they work with almost anything in your closet. With so many different styles and washes, the possibilities are endless!
