ways to wear denim jacket trend

Denim jackets are timeless pieces that have been around for years. What’s great about this versatile garment is that they are defined by the rest of your outfit, meaning that no matter what decade you are in, you can make the denim jacket current and modern with what you pair underneath it.

It’s definitely a staple that should be in your wardrobe, especially during these warmer months as they are perfect for adding warmth without the heaviness or bulk.

This also means that there are an abundance of different ways you can wear it and today we want to show you how to get the look of our three favorite ways to wear the denim jacket this spring/summer.

Style #1 Chic: Double Denim

If you love that sleek chic look, then this outfit is for you. Wearing double denim will always be risky, but if it’s done right then you can achieve a look that is on trend and very fashion-forward. 

The trick to getting double denim right is to make sure that it doesn’t over power the look. It is easiest to do in the summer as bare legs tone down the presence of all the denim. To complete the look, stick to sleek leather accessories and a pair of cool wayfarer shades.

Style #2 Boho: Denim Jacket + Maxi Dress

For a feminine boho look, take a printed maxi dress and pair it with a fitted denim jacket. Team with a small shoulder bag and a pair a flat sandals – don’t forget a to add a pair of chic sunglasses of course! 

The maxi dress can feel a little daunting for some as it’s a lot of the same material which may make you feel like it widens your frame. A fitted denim jacket, with the sleeves rolled up, is great for streamlining your figure and breaking up the print.

Style #3 Grunge: Oversized Denim Jacket + Summer Dress

Give your summer dresses a twist with a grungy feel. To achieve this, pair your dress with an oversized denim jacket with the sleeves rolled up (we think a men’s jacket is best for this) and a pair of chunky ankle boots, such as the very popular 90s grunge boot by Dr. Martens.

A lot of different summer day dresses will work with this style, so feel free to experiment with the dresses you already own, however we do adore this little striped number. Nautical stripes always look great with a pop of red, so this bright bag is ideal. For a twist, add some glamour with a pair of jeweled earrings but keep the rest of the look minimal.
