How to style a denim jacket
One-piece worth investing in? A classic denim jacket. This versatile staple never drops off the trend radar. Whether you find
yourself dolling up on the regular or just need easy basics for the weekend, this piece performs. It pairs as well with flares
and ruffles as with slinky knits and casual kicks. In fact, there are few things a denim jacket doesn’t look good with.
Still, we have a few guidelines for entering “perfect outfit” territory. Whichever end of the spectrum your personal
style leans toward, we’ve got a look for you to try. Let’s review five on-trend ways to wear this forever favourite.
A knit midi-length dress is a summer-to-autumn favourite. With a few add-on accents, it’ll become
the perfect base for a laid-back look. Pairing a denim jacket with low-tops and a leather backpack
brings in a streetwear vibe while giving you the freedom to do whatever it is you need to—whether that’s
hanging out with your girlfriends or chasing after your kids.
Feminine charm & accessories
Denim naturally lends itself to the boho-chic aesthetic, so mixing it into a feminine, free-spirited look is a breeze.
Try layering the jacket over a chiffon blouse with sweet details like ruffles and florals. A pleated skirt or wide-leg
culottes like these will add movement and sophistication to balance out the structured denim. Distinctly pretty
jean jacket accessories wrap up this ladylike look.
We say a denim jacket can be incredibly sleek and current—it’s all about what you pair it with, and black
is a chic place to start. If your personal style is modern and minimalist, add a denim jacket over a black
knit top, slip into black leather mules, and top it off with a statement bag. Balance the palette with suede
or rust-hued bottoms.
A wide-leg pant and a boxy, cropped jacket are a win-win combo, especially with a hint of retro flair.
When your pant leg is boasting volume, pair it with a fitted top to balance the silhouette.
Layer on your denim jacket before you add playful accessories like a strappy heel and a bold clutch.
Jean jacket with leggings
If black leggings are your Saturday go-to, try switching it up with a pair in luxe faux leather.
(Equally comfortable, but with a bit more panache.) Pairing a jean jacket with leggings and a twist-knot
sweater adds a cozy Autumn style. Slip-on sneakers keep things casual. Add an oversized leather hobo bag
and you’ll be ready for anything.
