Dashing in Denim: 3 Ways to Wear a Denim Jacket

Whether your style is chic, sporty, or edgy, denim jackets are always an essential! This versatile cotton twill fabric can be worn from day to night as a statement piece all year round. It’s the perfect basic to throw on over a mini dress in the spring or on top of a knit sweater in the fall. Here are 3 different ways you can easily style a denim jacket.

1. Denim on Denim

Pair your denim jacket with your favorite denim jeans and add a pop of color to liven up the look! Depending on your style, you can easily dress this look up or down by pairing it with sneakers and a cap or heels. If you want to keep it classic and chic, ditch the hat and add a touch of red lipstick and nails.

Tip: When styling a denim on denim outfit, try to match both denim pieces with the same wash! For example, if you’re wearing a light wash jacket, match it with some light wash jeans so that the outfit looks coordinated and sleek.

2.  Too Cool for School

Do it 90’s style! If your style is more edgy, then I would recommend going for an oversized denim jacket to give it that “grunge” factor. Pair it with some black jeans and combat boots to edge up your look! You can even layer a leather jacket under your denim jacket because why not? Top it all off by accessorizing with sunglasses and you’ll definitely be turning heads once you walk out that door!

Tip: To spice up your look, try embellishing your jacket! You can DIY it by distressing it, adding studs or sequins, bleaching it, etc.  This will definitely make the jacket a statement piece!

3. Fun and Flirty

Dress it up! Whether you’re going on a lunch date with your S/O or a romantic walk in the park, you can keep the look fun and flirty by throwing over a cropped denim jacket over a cute dress! For a day time look, put on sandals and apply neutral makeup to keep it both casual and sweet. If you’re going out for a night of fun, swap the sandals for heels and apply a bold lip!

Tip: A cropped denim jacket gives the look a girlier vibe and allows for the outfit to be more visible. If you’re short like me, then cropped jackets are a great choice because it doesn’t fully cover your torso, giving the illusion of you looking taller! SCORE!

I highly recommend purchasing a denim jacket if you don’t have one already. You can never go wrong with one and it’s an essential that you’re going to find yourself needing!
