Sometimes I see something I love and it takes me FAR too long to purchase one. A good denim jacket was one of those things. I bought a few not so great quality ones but then never ended up wearing them but always loved seeing outfits styled with them. Being in MN where the weather is cold about 90% of the year (I kid, I kid), I’m starting to finally invest in some good outerwear!
Are denim jackets still in style?
Heck YES!! One look at a magazine or Instagram and you’ll see beautifully style denim jacket outfits all over the place.
Last spring I picked up this jacket and it was literally the best thing I ever did. It is so comfy, fits like a dream and it’s purchase helps marginalized women have a good job! That’s a win, win, win if you ask me!
If you’ve been hesitant to get a denim jacket for yourself, or have one and are unsure how to wear it, here are a few different ways you can style it. And trust me when I say, investing in a good denim jacket is like investing in a good pair of jeans – once you get a good pair you’ll understand why they’re worth the investment!
Style tips for how to wear a denim jacket:
Casual over a graphic tee
The easiest way to wear a denim jacket is thrown over a simple tee and jeans! It’s the perfect layering piece.
I have this cute coffee tee from Evereve (this exact one has since sold out but they have an updated version here). I like the dark denim in this outfit to mix things up a bit.
Layered over a dress
I recently brought it with on our trip to the west coast and I am so glad I did. The weather was much cooler than I had anticipated and the denim jacket I had was perfectly paired with the dress I brought.
Denim jackets over dresses are my new favorite! I’ll definitely be wearing this combo all through fall and just switching my sandals for booties.
Denim on denim
This is also referred to as the Canadian tuxedo. 😉 One way to do this well is is to break it up with a color!
Also having your under shirt peeking out breaks it up a bit so there’s not too much denim all over.
I promise when I say that once you find a good quality denim jacket that fits you well, you’ll catch yourself throwing it on every day! They’re such a fun transition piece between seasons and especially great for those cooler months.
