A denim jacket is the quintessential outerwear piece that every woman should have in her closet!
Denim jackets are so versatile, and can be worn all year round, no matter the season. This makes them the perfect transitional weather jacket.
Wear your denim jacket over a thin t-shirt for warmer days, or wear it with multiply layers for chillier evenings; either way, you’ll look stylish and fashion forward. If you’re still not convinced or sure how to wear a denim jacket with virtually everything you own, we’ll show you how.
Here are 5 stylish looks that you can wear every day of the week:
Wear a denim jacket on the job
Yes, you can wear a casual denim jacket at the office; just don’t wear it with sneakers and joggers! Rather opt for the totally trendy and oh-so feminine pleated skirt. This midi-skirt looks good on every body shape and size. It will instantly lengthen your frame and give you shapelier legs.
Paired with a classic denim jacket, you get a look that will take you from work to wine, with a simple change of accessories.
Wear it with a dress
Street style is all the rage at the moment. We want to look chic and effortless, and be able to mix and match the clothing we buy. This outfit ticks all the boxes: trendy enough to go out with your girls, but also covered up enough to wear to casual Friday at work.
The trick to taking this look from average to special is to wear it with a stylish over-sized denim jacket. They are bang on trend right now, and are figure forgiving.
Layer it up
If you love to snuggle up in winter knits, then you’ll love this is the outfit the most.
You have to think outside of the box here and use your denim jacket as a “top” rather than outer wear. Layer it over a light knit or a simple white tee, or under a flowy over-sized cardigan for a chic and warm outfit.
Be sure to wear this look with shorts or a short skirt to balance out your proportions.
Be more fashion forward
For those of you who still haven’t tried wearing culottes, this is a great way to ease yourself into the trend, and to show off some serious style points with a denim jacket.
Because of the voluminous nature of culottes, rather go for a slim fitting denim jacket. A cable knit jumper and stylish mules will finish your look off.
Denim on denim (on denim)
Are you getting Brittney Spears and Justin Timberlake flashbacks yet? Well fear not, we have the solution to wearing multiple denim pieces in one outfit. The biggest tip for wearing denim on denim is; wear different shades and “textures” of denim.
For instance, wear stretchy skinny jeans in a darker wash; a boxy blue denim jacket; and a soft and pale denim shirt. The differences between the individual items are more pleasing to the eye, and give you a super edgy denim jacket outfit.
You can also use accessories to break up the look, like a trendy check scarf.
