A Denim Jacket is a closet essential in my book. There are so many ways to wear a Denim Jacket. I got some help from some of my fave bloggers on how you can wear this wardrobe staple.

My jackets are oldies but goodies from Loft.

Here are some Denim Jackets that are similar.

What is it about a Denim Jacket?

If I had to choose my top items I wear year after year, in addition to a black Blazer, a Denim Jacket would be one of them. It makes it easy for me to wear a dress for the weekend or Fridays for work. Also, it’s not too thick so I do can some layering.

“The jean jacket has come a long way from the one your mother bought you in middle school, and if you know how to wear it right, it’s quite literally the only jacket you’ll need.”

1. Pair it with a Dress

Throwing a Denim Jacket over a dress is an easy way to add some structure to an outfit. It can give you some coverage in addition to keeping you warm! I also like how it brings a casual feel to any look.

Here are some dresses to layer with a denim jacket.

2. Yes to White Jeans

I haven’t done this combo in awhile. When I do, I always feel put together. White jeans bring a clean look when paired with a Denim Jacket.

Here are some white jeans to check out.

3. Throw it Over Your Shoulders

A Denim Jacket worn over the shoulders is always so chic! I talked about this layering trick in a previous post, How I do Layering with Curves. I like to wear mine like this on the weekend.
