How to Wear Denim Jackets
The time for denim is always! Denim is versatile, easy to wear, and truly a staple piece in any wardrobe. There are so many styles and washes to choose from when it comes to denim jackets – figure out which denim jacket suits your outfit best!
For a general rule of thumb, denim jackets should fit nicely. An oversized jacket typically looks sloppy – so it’s best to try your usual size. A good denim jacket looks best with black pants, joggers, jeans (don’t be afraid to try denim-on-denim) or chinos, paired with a T-shirt, crewneck or button-down on top.
A white or cream denim jacket creates a clean look, rather than the typical 90’s grunge factor regular denim jackets bring to an outfit. Paired with light wash or white jeans, this jacket works for any casual summer or spring day outing.
Light wash denim jackets pair great with colored pants – specifically navy, green, brown and burgundy. These jackets will add a more casual and fun aspect to an outfit. Try a light wash jacket with sherpa lining for a cozier look, or with distressed touches for an adventurous night-out-on-the-town vibe.
Dark wash denim jackets can be dressed up or dressed down – which makes it the best choice if you’re on a budget. A helpful tip when sporting a dark denim jacket: avoid wearing jeans with a dark jacket, unless they are black jeans. You can try pairing a dark denim jacket with khaki pants!
